Seth Tucker To Direct And Choreograph ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’ At ABT

By Maddy Dowler

Seth as Jacob in ‘La Cage aux Folles’

If you haven’t yet seen Seth Tucker as Jacob, the butler, in ABT’s current production of La Cage aux Folles, you’re definitely missing out. Some of the best lines and gags are his and make the show that much more hilarious. You can still see La Cage aux Folles, by the way, in either Peoria until February 28 or at Herberger Theater Center in downtown Phoenix March 6-22. FIND TICKETS HERE.

Seth is not new to ABT. His past acting credits include: Forever Plaid (Jinx), Lucky Stiff (Harry), and Pageant (Miss West Coast). His ABT directing credits include: Altar Boyz, and Pageant. Seth is a local entrepreneur, writer, and cabaret producer.

His next venture is as Director and Choreographer of the upcoming Off Broadway at the ENCORE offering, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. He is also no stranger to this show as he has performed in it twice before. Once in 2009 at The Phoenix Theatre Company (PTC) playing Leaf Coneybear which won him an ‘ariZoni Theatre Award of Excellence.’ He also won two PTC ‘Encore Awards’ for Best Supporting Actor and Best Moment of the Season. It was the last show he did in Arizona and the first show he booked after moving to New York City in 2010/11 at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre in Indianapolis, IN.

“I love these characters, the humor, the heart and the music. I’m a huge William Finn fan and got to meet him and chat with Carmel Dean a couple years back in Quisisana, Maine. Now, I’m very lucky to be given the opportunity by Arizona Broadway Theatre to direct and choreograph,” says Seth.

Seth as Leaf Coneybear

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will be fun for the whole family. It’s about an eclectic group of six “mid-pubescents” who spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Even the audience will participate in this delightful den of comedic genius.

An Interpreted Performance of ‘La Cage aux Folles’ Available for the Arizona Deaf Community

Beginning with Season 15, Arizona Broadway Theatre launched a new program to create community-related impact projects to accompany each production. These projects are designed to provide ABT the opportunity to expand its community engagement in meaningful, measurable and memorable ways that extend beyond the stage. Art, as they say, imitates life, and with each production come real-life show-specific themes that correlate to topics and issues of the day. With this in mind, ABT is running a teen-youth anti-bullying community impact project entitled, “I Am What I Am” in conjunction with the run of the La Cage aux Folles. In the spirit of inclusion and acceptance, Arizona Broadway Theatre and Herberger Theater Center are proud to host this interpreted performance for the Arizona Deaf community at the 2pm show on Saturday, March 14, 2020. BUY TICKETS FOR THIS PERFORMANCE.

I Learned All About ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’ Just For You!

By Maddy Dowler

Well, here’s another show I’ve never heard of. But that’s not saying much as I am not well-versed in the language of theatre overall. But as the Communications Manager here at ABT, when I found out that The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was our feature ‘Off-Broadway at The ENCORE’ performance March 20 – 29, 2020, I knew I’d better study up.

So, I did what anyone would do which is to look it up on Wikipedia and here’s what I learned:

It’s a musical comedy with music and lyrics by William Finn, a book by Rachel Sheinkin, conceived by Rebecca Feldman with additional material by Jay Reiss which originally ran on Broadway in 2005. The show centers on a fictional spelling bee set at the geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School. Six quirky mid-pubescents compete in the Bee which is run by three equally quirky grown-ups. So far, so good – I like it. It turns out that it had great reviews on Broadway, box office success, and was also nominated for six Tony Awards, winning two, including best book.

The musical was based upon C-R-E-P-U-S-C-U-L-E, an original improvisational play created by Rebecca Feldman and performed by The Farm, a New-York-based improvisational comedy troupe. Sarah SaltzbergWendy Wasserstein‘s weekend nanny, was in the original production, and Wasserstein recommended that Finn see the show. Finn brought Rachel Sheinkin on board, and they worked together with Feldman to transform “C-R-E-P-U-S-C-U-L-E” into a scripted full-length musical.

Courtesy of Wikipedia

An unusual aspect of the show is that four real audience members are invited on stage to compete in the spelling bee alongside the six young characters. What?! In fact, during the 2005 Tony Awards, former Presidential candidate, Al Sharpton, competed. Another amusing aspect of the show is that the official ‘pronouncer,’ usually an improv comedian, provides ridiculous usage-in-a-sentence examples when asked to use words in a sentence.

Ok, you had me at improv…

So, about the music…The Broadway cast album was released on May 31, 2005, and was nominated for a Grammy Award. That’s all I know but I found a track from the original Broadway soundtrack so we can listen to it together (but keep reading after):

So, I think this is shaping up to be a really fun night out at Arizona Broadway Theatre!

“i.DANCE” Community Impact Project Coincides With Run Of ‘Chicago’ At ABT!

Beginning with Season 15, ABT launched a series of show-related impact projects designed to expand the theatre’s community engagement in meaningful, measurable and memorable ways that extend beyond the productions on stage. Bob Fosse’s iconic choreography and unique style of dance have made the musical Chicago one of the most beloved and longest-running shows on Broadway.

With this in mind, ABT is hosting a two-day dance intensive workshop April 10 & 11, 2020 entitled “i.DANCE” to accompany the run of Chicago (March 13 – April 19). The Chicago i.DANCE Community Impact Project is designed to provide local dancers ages 13-23 the opportunity to expand their personal & artistic growth in a supportive environment, allowing every dancer to excel. The two-day workshop will be led by ABT’s own Associate Artistic Director (and Director/Choreographer of Chicago), Kurtis Overby. Kurtis, along with a number of ABT’s talented Teaching Artists (including members of the cast of Chicago), will deliver outstanding training in both fundamental dance techniques and other styles.

This project has been generously supported by longtime ABT patron, Bette Aronsohn. Bette lived in Manhattan for 30 years pursuing a career in theatre before moving to the West Valley of Arizona 20 years ago. Bette admits she has been in love with the arts since she was six years old “tap dancing and singing Shirley Temple’s ‘Good Ship Lollipop.’” Her love for the arts is why she generously gives of her finances.

“All of the arts are very important to me,” says Bette “and I think more people should give their money to theatre, ballet, opera and museums.”

Bette feels that the arts are suffering in our society and we don’t want to “lose that magic” for our kids and their kids. And, it’s because of children that Bette has given to the i.DANCE Community Impact Project. “Adults get to enjoy the show, but I want young people to have the opportunity to follow their dreams and hone their skills and i.DANCE accomplishes that.”

i.DANCE will be intermediate and advanced workshop classes focused on fundamental dance techniques as well as other dance styles (including Jazz, Ballet, Fosse, and some of today’s other more cutting-edge styles). It is a unique dance workshop opportunity offered in the West Valley where technique, discipline and versatility are rewarded and promises to be an encouraging atmosphere that will expand artistic expression and personal growth in a supportive environment.

Broadway Blockbuster Musical CHICAGO Next On The Mainstage At ABT

“i.DANCE” Dance Intensive Community Impact Project To Coincide With Show’s Run

Like many single-named celebrities, this show only needs a single moniker as well – Chicago! The 1926 play, written by reporter and playwright Maurine Dallas Watkins based on actual criminals and crimes that she reported on, has become an icon in American culture. The 1996 Broadway revival of Kander & Ebb’s Chicago holds the record as the longest-running American musical in Broadway history, and, in 2002, the film version won the Academy Award for Best Picture. Chicago will be here in the Valley of the Sun at Arizona Broadway Theatre March 13 – April 19, 2020.

Set amidst the decade of the roaring twenties, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and wannabe nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media, and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, and hires the slickest criminal lawyer in town to transform her crime into a barrage of sensational headlines. Filled with greed, corruption, exploitation, and one show-stopping hit after another, Chicago is sure to give you the old “Razzle Dazzle!”

Kurtis Overby

The show will be directed & choreographed by ABT’s Associate Artistic Director, Kurtis Overby, whose credits include direction and choreography for ABT shows Cats, My Way, A Chorus Line, Trailer Park, Hairspray, Rock of Ages, Hair, An American in Paris, and most recently, La Cage aux Folles.

“In the rush to open and close one show after another here at ABT, I sometimes have to pinch myself as a reminder that what I get to do every day is pretty darn awesome,” said Kurtis. “After coming off choreographing La Cage aux Folles, Chicago is extra special simply because the two shows have such contrasting styles of dance. La Cage is such an extravagance, which I love, but Chicago gives me the chance to explore Bob Fosse’s iconic repertoire of movements. He truly invented a style that has become known by one word, and one word only – FOSSE! Audiences are in for a real treat!”

Beginning with Season 15, ABT launched a series of show-related impact projects designed to expand the theatre’s community engagement in meaningful, measurable, and memorable ways that extend beyond the productions on stage. Bob Fosse’s iconic choreography and unique style of dance have made the musical Chicago an icon of Americana. With this in mind, ABT will host a two-day dance intensive workshop April 10 & 11, 2020, entitled “i.DANCE” to accompany the run of Chicago on the Mainstage. The Chicago i.DANCE Community Impact Project is designed to provide local dancers ages 13-23 the opportunity to expand their personal & artistic growth in a supportive environment, allowing every dancer to excel.

Kurtis Overby will lead the two-day intensive workshop. Kurtis, along with a number of ABT’s talented Teaching Artists (including members of the cast of Chicago), will deliver outstanding training in both fundamental dance techniques and a variety of styles. The workshop will culminate with a night out at ABT enjoying dinner and a performance of Chicago as well as a photo with the cast after the show. The fee for the workshop and the night out is $150. Registration opens February 14 at azbroadway.org and will close April 1, 2020. The impact project is made possible in part through the generous support of ABT patron, Bette Aronsohn.

The 7th Annual Broadway Ball Is Coming Together Nicely

On Saturday, February 29, 2020, 400 people will don their fancy attire and descend on Arizona Broadway Theatre to experience The 7th Annual Broadway Ball. And do we have great plans coming together! Our committee has been hard at work to create an unforgettable evening and it is sure to be one of the highlights of the year for the West Valley social scene.

Susan Casper, co-host of ABC15’s long time hit morning show Sonoran Living, will be our emcee once again for the elegant evening. Susan joined ABC15 News in 2008 as an anchor and reporter before moving to Sonoran Living, the longest-running television lifestyle show in Phoenix. Susan is an executive board member of Dress for Success, Phoenix and a founding member of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Phoenix Metropolitan Chapter. You can catch Susan on Sonoran Living weekdays at 9 am on ABC15.

Brad York, Director of Marketing & Development will co-emcee the event.  Brad is thrilled to share the stage with the lovely and talented Susan Casper as co-emcee of the 7th Annual Broadway Ball! Originally from the beautiful Pacific Northwest and the great state of Oregon, Brad first came to Arizona in 1996 on a full-ride out-of-state tuition vocal scholarship to Arizona State University. He holds a BA in Music from Linfield College (Oregon) and an MM in Musical Theatre Performance from Arizona State University. Upon graduation, Brad moved to New York City where he lived and worked for ten years – marrying the life of an actor with steady jobs at an investment firm and as a waiter. He returned to Arizona full-time in 2010 to work on “the other side of the table” at ABT in Marketing and Development. You’ll likely also recognize Brad from his many appearances on the ABT stage over the years. His roles include Evelyn Oakleigh (Anything Goes), Hysterium (A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to The Forum), Man 1 (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change), Harold (The Full Monty), The Baker (Into the Woods), Igor (Young Frankenstein), and most recently Gomez Addams (The Addams Family).

The committee has confirmed four extravagant live auction items, including an eight-day Rhine River Cruise generously donated by Viking Cruises valued at $7,500, as well as numerous silent auction items from sports memorabilia to art to gift baskets and so much more.

Cases of wine have been generously donated by our ABT community for the very popular “Wine Pull” where participants pay to “pull” from 150 concealed bottles of great wines. “Bubbles and Barrels” is another fun activity happening at the Ball where participants pay a fee and choose to taste delicious sparkling wines or aged whiskeys. They will also get to take home their special customized glass!

Of course, there will be live musical performances, a gift card frenzy, and special surprises throughout the evening. Some tickets are still available. Tickets are $175 per person and can be purchased at the ABT Box Office by calling 623.776.8400 or online HERE.

‘La Cage aux Folles’ Transfers to Herberger Theater Center March 6-22

By Maddy Dowler

Following its highly successful run in Peoria at Arizona Broadway Theatre (ABT), La Cage aux Folles will move to Herberger Theater Center (HTC) in downtown Phoenix March 6 through March 22, 2020.* ABT has been a resident company at HTC since 2018 having partnered with HTC on productions such as A Christmas Carol, Beauty and The Beast, Mary Poppins, Sweeney Todd, An American in Paris and, most recently, the hilarious Addams Family in June 2019.

The precursor to the well-known 1996 film The Birdcage starring Robin Williams and Nathan Lane, Jerry Herman’s 6-time Tony Award-winning La Cage aux Folles tells the story of Jean-Michel and Anne who are newly engaged, and her strait-laced parents want to meet his. The only problem? His birth-mother is out of the picture, his dad owns a drag nightclub, and his mom is the star of the show! Jean-Michel wants just one night with his parents playing it “straight” to impress Anne’s parents. What’s a drag queen to do? Audiences will devour Herman’s well-known power ballads, rowdy show tunes, and dreamy duets.

With the run at HTC, ABT will continue its teen-youth anti-bullying community IMPACT PROJECT entitled, “I Am What I Am.” “While the central theme of La Cage focuses on issues of inclusion and acceptance related to the LGBTQ+ community,” says Brad York, ABT Director of Marketing & Development, “our intent with this impact project is to broaden the focus of inclusion and acceptance among all people.”

ABT has several community outreach elements aligned with the “I am what I am!” IMPACT PROJECT, including PSA type videos that focus on the impact of bullying among teen-youth, the emotional and physical impact of bullying, as well as resource information for those seeking help. Also, the cast of La Cage will visit One n Ten in downtown Phoenix whose mission is to serve LGBTQ+ youth and young adults ages 11-24.  Learn more about One n Ten at https://onenten.org/.

Finally, in the spirit of inclusion and acceptance, ABT and HTC will host an interpreted performance for the Arizona Deaf community on Saturday, March 14, 2020, at 2 pm at HTC. Tickets for this special performance can be purchased at HerbergerTheater.org.  

Upcoming ABT productions at HTC include Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which will run on the Mainstage in Peoria June 5 – July 3 and then transfer to HTC July 10 – 26, 2020. Partial funding is provided by the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture through appropriations from the Phoenix City Council.
