Front Row Players Spring Musical

Theater for Adults of All Abilities

The Front Row Players may only be entering their second semester but they have already mounted two theatrical productions for adults of all abilities. Founder Deborah Cavanaugh described how the organization strives to bring a true musical theater experience by teaching these adults acting, singing and dancing.

The first production that the Front Row Players put on was a musical revue of various songs but their upcoming production of "Seussical the Musical" will be their first full length production with a beginning, middle and end. Director Christopher Rogers discussed how this was many of these actors first time having parts and memorizing lines, songs and dances but their enthusiasm helps with the daunting task. While the semester may seem long, the entire show is really only put together in 15 Saturday rehearsals.

"Seussical the Musical" was chosen specifically because of the variety of parts available for the actors as well as the fact it is age appropriate. The content is familiar to both the audience and actors and has been scaled down to fit their needs. Actors David Sill, Brianna Liadka, Carly Resseguie, Meghan King and Ellie Knodel treated us to a special preview performance from the show.

If you're interested in seeing Front Row Players production of "Seussical the Musical", it takes place Saturday, May 13th at 2:00pm. It'll be at the Eastern Hills Church located at 8277 Cazenovia Road, Manlius. Tickets are $10.

For adults interested in joining Front Row Players, there is an audition/interview process to begin the semester. You can find more information on their website at frontrowplayers.org.
