Role: Kent Clark
Theater: Lamplighters Music Theatre Director: Phil Lowry Music Director: Baker Peeples Performance: October 14th, 2018
Each year, the Lamplighters Music Theatre (known for their Gilbert & Sullivan productions) writes and performs a new G&S show with a topical theme. Having been a part of the writing committee in the past, I totally appreciate the effort and artistry that goes into these. This year they finally convinced me to be on stage.
Role: Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm
Theater: Lamplighters Music Theatre Director: Dennis Lickteig Music Director: Karl Pister Opening: February 2nd, 2019 Runs through: February 17th, 2019
I absolutely loved playing Carl-Magnus for Hillbarn’s production of A Little Night Music back in 2013, so I jumped at the chance to reprise the role for Lamplighters. It’s one of my favorite shows with some of the finest lyrics and songs in musical theater. Performing them with a full orchestra is going to be glorious.
Theater: Altarena Playhouse Director: Dennis Lickteig Music Director: Mark Dietrich Opening: March 29th, 2019 Runs through: May 5th, 2019
When the artistic director of Altarena Playhouse asked Dennis if he would direct company for them as part of their 2019 season, she also asked if I would be willing to play Bobby. Of course I said yes. I’m excited to be able to mark this off my bucket list. I mean, how many times can you turn thirty-five? Eleven?
I can’t announce this one quite yet, but it’s a one-man show at one of my favorite venues written by an amazing author with timeless songs. Stay tuned!
