This section of the web site could really be called "On What Stage in the World Can We Find Joel Lind?" MCP is honored that Joel considers us his home theatre, but we all know that Joel loves theatre so much that he isn't happy unless he is in a show. And MCP just can't produce that many shows in one year.
In seriousness, MCP is honored to have many, many talented people within its membership. Sometimes the shows being produced by the troupe in a particular year do not match well with a member's talents. Or some other community theatre in the area is doing a particular show with a role a member has always wanted to do. MCP likes to celebrate the stage appearances and technical roles of its members for other troupes. And that's what this section is all about. For instance ...
First up, Gary Glass will appear as Senex, Ken Macke will appear as Marcus Lycus, Kiya Fix will appear as Tintinabula and Jonathan Eckman will appear as a Protean in Lovelnad Stage Company's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Performances are March 3-5, 10-12 and 17-19. For tickets and more information visit the Loveland Stage Company web site.
Jon Scheiding and Jonathan Eckman are members of the cast of CenterStage's Take Me Out. Jon will be appearing as Kippy Sunderstrom and Jonathan is a member of the ensemble. Fred Hunt is the show's director. Performances will be March 24-26, March 30-31 and April 1. Be sure to mark your calendars to get there on the first weekend, 'cause MCP's Pride & Prejudice begins on the second weekend, and you don't want to miss either show. Tickets will be on sale soon and more information is available on the CenterStage web site.
And, Nativity Players' final production has many MCP members within its casts. The troupe will be presenting Guys and Dolls as it closes up shop with this wonderful classic! The show is double cast, so you may have to go twice to catch all your MCP friends. Not so with Lara Gonzalez, Lolo Pateras, Meghan Toney and Rae Krull who are Hot Box Dancers, Caitlin Sanderson, who is a member of the Save-A-Soul Mission Chorus, or Jonathan Eckman who is the Newsstand Merchant and a Cuban Dancer. They will be appearing in all of the performances. In the Pinstripes cast will be Jon Scheiding as Sky Masterson, Kaleigh-Brooke Dillingham as Sarah Brown, Ray Lebowski as Benny Southstreet and Paul Henkelman as Harry the Horse. In the Polka Dots cast will be Peyton Hahn as Sky Masterson, Brandon Dunphy as Nathan Detroit, Bonnie Emmer as Sarah Brown, Chris Toney as Nicely-Nicely Johnson, John Masterson as Arvide Abernathy, and Mike Pateras as Lt. Brannigan. Performances are scheduled for April 28-30 and May 5-7. We can't tell you which performance will have which cast. You will have to keep checking back here for that information. Ticket information and details will be posted on Nativity Players' web site. Plan to be there to give them a warm send-off and let them know they will be missed!
Congratulations to Jon Scheiding and Jonathan Eckman cast in But we won't have to worry about tickets for that show just yet, since it is slated for this Spring. Fred Hunt is the show's director.
