SCT performers to get 'Glee'-ful with musical revue

July 21, 2010

Starkville Community Theatre's upcoming summer musical revue, "The A, B, C's of Broadway," will spoof "Glee" with a cast of 18 performers portraying high school glee club members working to determine which songs they will select to perform in a regional show choir competition.
The cast works its way through an "alphabet" of song titles from various Broadway musicals until they find the "perfect numbers" to perform in competition, hence the production's title, director Alison Stamps says.
The show will feature songs from such well-known classic musicals as "The Music Man," "Anything Goes," "Miss Saigon," "Les Miserables," "42nd Street" and "Pal Joey," as well as more recent Broadway hits such as "Hairspray," "Avenue Q," "Shrek," "Jersey Boys" and Disney's "The Little Mermaid."
Portraying the high school glee club members are Grant Alexander, Ruby Brenner, John Brocato, Matt Crane, Amy Dupire Jones, M.J. Etua, Blake Garrett, Madeline Golden, Brian Hawkins, Lorraine Hughes, Maureen Hughes, Brenda Mayo, Tracey Millsaps, Brad Moreland, Rick Rogers, Janice Ross, Mary Kathryn Sanford and Abigail Voller.
Kathi Hester will portray the glee club's director, "Mrs. Schu" — a takeoff on the teacher character in "Glee."
Bonnie Oppenheimer is serving as assistant director, and the musicians for the show are Dr. Bruce Lesley, Jim Gassaway and James Nail. Carole Sorensen has also provided musical during the rehearsal process.
The revue, which includes a dessert reception following each performance, is SCT's primary fund-raiser for the upcoming season of productions.
Performances for "The A, B, C's of Broadway" are set for 7:30 p.m. July 22, 23 and 24 and July 29, 30 and 31 at the Playhouse on Main. Tickets cost $25 per person and include the dessert reception.
To reserve seats, call the SCT Box Office at 323-6855 (messages may be left if no one is available to take calls) or drop by the Playhouse on Main from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Saturday or from 2 to 5 p.m. on Thursday.
