Cabrillo Stag: Behind the Scenes of Escaping Queens
July 2013
 
Josiah Frampton
Josiah Frampton (Manny/Freddy) returns for another production with Cabrillo Stage, having previously performed as Manny/Freddie in the world premiere of Escaping Queens (2012), Ernst in Cabaret (2010), Ensemble in The Full Monty (2011) and The Wizard of Oz (2009), in which he also portrayed a flying monkey. Josiah has also worked for bay area companies such as The Theatre of All Possibilities in their original elementary school touring shows We the People, Scrooge, Worlds of Wisdom, and California or Bust. For Hillbarn Theatre’s production of The Will Roger’s Follies (2011), he had the joy of being in the Cowboy Quartet, singing barbershop style and learning the art of trick roping. Josiah is now excited to return to the theatre where he got his start, Cabrillo Stage!

What is the Gypsy Robe:
An old Broadway tradition, a "Gypsy" is a member of the dancing and singing chorus of a musical who moves from one show to the next, much like gypsies of old. A robe is awarded to a member of the chorus, which then becomes the ҧood luckӠcharm of the show. The winner adds a piece of memorabilia from their show to the robe, and then it is passed on to the next production.

At Cabrillo Stage the Robe is traditionally awarded to a chorus member, and once in awhile to a unique lead, who exemplifies the spirit of Cabrillo Stage through dedication and commitment to the production. The Robe selection process, chosen by the director and producer, also takes into consideration someone who has the greatest number of Cabrillo Stage credits in the cast. The winner, awarded on opening night, must wear the Robe and bless the stage, the scenery, the props and all the cast members before each performance in order to bring the production luck.
