A Splendid Seaman

Upon completing his first contract with Princess Cruises in September of 2023, Jeffrey will be honing his skills in New York before departing for Oceano, CA in late February.  There he will spend six months with The Great American Melodrama performing in three musical comedies; notably, he will be playing the role of Frederic in an adaptation of Gilbert and Sullivan's "Pirates of Penzance".

“‘The Sorcerer’ contains one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s first patter songs, songs with moderately fast to very fast tempo with a rapid succession of rhythmic patterns. This patter song features the sorcerer, John Wellington Wells, wonderfully played by Jeffrey Laughrun, whose singing, dancing and physicality are perfect for the role.”

“Highlight of the show: Hands down, it’s Jeffrey Laughrun’s portrayals of all eight of the ill-fated D’Ysquiths…The characters ranged from a pretentious fop with animal skins around his neck, to a bumbling bishop, to a silent movie star. Each of Laughrun’s comedic characterizations is bang-on.”
-Cape Cod Times

“Highlight of the show:…Laughrun’s spritely and skilled rendition of the fast-moving, tongue-twisting introductory song for sorcerer John Wellington Wells.”
-Cape Cod Times

“I would say that Jeffrey stole the show, whether he was an Episcopal bishop or D’Ysquith Jr. or any of the other personae. He is adept in the use of body English, and various accents and facial expressions.”
