Sir Despard (Adam Rothschild) and Mad Margaret (Maddy Curtis) have difficulty adjusting to their new lives as "gentle district vistors."
The Ancestors (Peter Schweitzer, James Collinson & Eric Clingan) enjoy a bit of fun after coming to life from a centuries-old picture gallery.
Rose (Lori Sundberg) and Richard (Richard Yingling) and the chorus of professional bridesmaids fine Robin Oakapple (Nigel Tangredi) in a state of distress over his new position as Bad Baronet of Ruddigore.
The Ancestors threaten Robin, now Sir Ruthven, (Nigel Tangredi, center) with "inconceivable agonies" for refusing to commit his required daily crime. (From L. to R.: Jeffrey Luksik, Eric Clingan, James Collinson, Jason Miller, Peter Schweitzer).
Richard and Rose share a tender moment.
Sir Despard (Adam Rothschild) rejects Rose in favor of Mad Margaret as the Villagers and Zorah (Chantel Tangredi, right) look on.
