Theatre Palisades announces the cast who will play the marvelous mutts in BARK! The Musical.
Seated, from left, are Marina Curtis Tidwell (brassy, sassy Golde) and Elena Coleman (motherly, sock-a-holic Boo). Standing, from left, are Greg Abbott (older, wiser King), Peter Miller (macho, street tough Sam), Julie Hinton (diva-like, operatic Chanel) and Ben Fuligni (energetic puppy Rocks - short for Rachmaninoff).
Susan Stangl directs. Gary Nesteruk is musical director. Choreography and costumes by Heidi Dotson.
Gavin MacLeod and Arnie Wishnick are executive producers; Ria Erlich and Sylvia Grieb, producers.
BARK! The Musical, a tuneful tribute to dogs and their intrepidly human hearts, will run weekends, August 31 - October 7.
