In April of 2006, students at the Governor's School for the Arts in Norfolk put on Baby Doe under the direction of Alan Fischer. The photographs below show the members of the two casts who appeared in three complete performances at the beautifully restored Crispus Attucks Theatre. Interestingly, this was not the first time that this demanding work was done by Governor's School students. Mr. Fischer directed other talented students in performances of Baby Doe in the Spring of 2001.
