Gavin MacLeod and Arnie Wishnick Named Executive Producers of BARK! The Musical
Longtime Pacific Palisades residents Gavin MacLeod and Arnie Wishnick have been tapped as Executive Producers of BARK! The Musical, coming August 31 to Theatre Palisades.
MacLeod, perhaps best known for his role as Captain Merrill Stubing on the popular TV series The Love Boat, served as honorary mayor of the Palisades for a record-setting five years. He and his wife Patti currently call the California desert home, but they still consider the Palisades their hometown and visit whenever they can.
"I am so pleased and proud to continue my association with a place that I love, especially by supporting one of its crown jewels - Theatre Palisades," MacLeod said.
This is the fourth time executive producing a musical at Theatre Palisades for Wishnick, who has been Executive Director of the Pacific Palisades Chamber of Commerce for 25 years. He previously co-produced The Marvelous Wonderettes (with Palisades resident Steve Guttenberg), as well as Damn Yankees and The Pajama Game.
"I love Theatre Palisades, musicals and dogs," Wishnick said, "so producing 'BARK!' was a natural fit."
He dedicates his efforts to two beloved best friends, now watching over him - Sandy, a yellow Labrador retriever, and Jack, a golden retriever/German shepherd mix.
BARK! The Musical, a tuneful tribute to dogs and their intrepidly human hearts, will run weekends, August 31 - October 7.
Theatre Palisades is pleased to announce the winners of its Poster Pooch Contest, held in conjunction with the upcoming production of BARK! The Musical.
