Some Spring Show Casting Info
On Minnie’s Boys, Greg is the director, Dave Dobrusky is musical director and Tom Segal is choreographer.
MINNIE MARX Darlene Popovic
JULIE (Groucho) Michael Austin
LEONARD (Chico) Anil Margsahayam
HERBIE (Zeppo) Douglas Giorgis

AL SHEAN David Curley
MAXIE /E.F. ALBEE Brian Yates Sharber
MRS. McNISH Chris Macomber
MRS. KRUPNICK Amy Cole
MRS. FLANAGAN Christa Boggs
From Greg: Two roles are still not cast. David Curley’s role, Al Shean the vaudeville star of the team Gallagher and Shean, is the Marx Bros. uncle (who knew?) Maxie, one of Brian Yates Sharber’s two roles, is a female impersonator whose act is ruined by the brothers in their first foray into vaudeville. Later, Brian plays E.F. Albee, the famous vaudeville impresario (and father to Edward Albee.)
From me: Wow, from vaudeville to absurdist theatre...that's quite a leap the Albee family made in just one generation!
On Boys From Syracuse, Dennis Lickteig is the director, Dave D again is musical director, and Jayne Zaban is the choreographer.

That's a big cast, and they're still missing one Lady of the Evening! Here's a little trivia: I played Adriana at Foothill Music Theatre fourteen years ago...sigh...when I was but a toddler! Seriously.
