SUCO students to stage musical
The State University College at Oneonta Music Department’s Performance Practice Workshop will present “Bed Fellas,” a musical comedy written by 2002 SUNY Oneonta graduate Omri Schein, on Saturday.
The performance, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 2 p.m. in the Music Department’s performance space, Room 201, in the Fine Arts Center on campus.
Schein wrote the book and lyrics for “Bed Fellas,” which features music by James Olmstead and additional material by Andrew Smith. SUNY Oneonta’s production is staged by voice instructor Colby Thomas, with accompaniment by Kim Paterson.
Schein describes the show as “a quirky, contemporary musical comedy about two men who are so bored with their lives in suburbia that they arrange to swap wives — without the wives knowing.” The cast features SUNY Oneonta students Jacob Wansor, Jared Barton, Amanda Vogue, Megan Harrington, Mark Durkee and Samantha Nugent.
Preceding the new work will be a “Curtain Raiser” showcase of contemporary musical theater songs of the late 20th and early 21st century, featuring students Rosalee DeHuff, Cristián LaBoy, Leigh Ann Muscalrella, Jason Pacuk, Lowhency Pierre, Melissa Trainor and Katherine Wansor, with guest Steve Fabrizio.
