Are we sure this is Triangle’s 125th Anniversary? The 1963-1964 show Funny Side Up purported to be the 75th Anniversary.
Funny you should ask. This was debated at length as we prepared for the Centennial in 1991.
- There have been 125 school years since the first year in which there was a Triangle show. Just as we in this part of the world customarily count age in years, the first year isn't one, it's zero. Po-Ca-Han-Tas opened in May 1891, which we don't count as "1", and there have been 125 years since. QED
- Counting shows is a rabbit hole not to go down:
- 122 school years with one or more shows
- 118 school years with shows performed the first time. Po-Ca-Han-Tas, and The King of Pomeru re-ran once each, and The Hon. Julius Caesar re-ran twice
- 118 shows, counting 1894-95 and 1896-97 as one each (there were two different shows each of those years, and not original ones)
- 120 shows, counting 1894-95 and 1896-97 as two each
- It is true that the 1963-64 show Funny Side Up purported to be the 75th Anniversary. One assumes that was due to 1938-39 Once Over Lightly having been billed as the 50th Anniversary show. Could they have arrived at that result by counting 1890-91 Po-Ca-Han-Tas as "1"; instead of zero as we do now...?
- So we made the decision at the time of the Centennial to re-calibrate and establish 1991 as the "100th" to correct the course. 2016 is the 125th , and 2041 will be the 150th !
In conclusion, how do you get to 125? Via triangulation of course!
We’re committed to bringing back as many alumni as possible for this celebration of Triangle’s 125-year history. If you would like to attend but have concerns about the cost of the weekend, please contact Kendall Crolius at firstname.lastname@example.org. Circumstances will be addressed confidentially on a case-by-case basis.
