One of our stars on the rise Jeremiah James has just landed into Julie Andrews new musical Great American Mousical. Goodspeed Musicals has announced the cast of the new musical which will run November 8th – December 2nd, at The Norma Terris Theatre in Chester, Connecticut.
The show takes place In the heart of the great metropolis of New York City, where the bright lights of Broadway shine. And down, down, down, beneath a theater known as the Sovereign, there sits a long-forgotten architect’s model — the Sovereign’s miniature replica. In this secret space, an adorable troupe of theater mice busily prepare to stage their own show, “Broadway Airs.” Among the cast and crew are Emil, the director; Harold, the character actor; Adelaide, the diva; and young Pippin, the intern. Rehearsals are in their usual state of chaos when suddenly the production is threatened by the imminent demolition of the theater and the devastating disappearance of Adelaide. As the clock ticks toward opening night, everyone is worried — will the little Sovereign survive? How can they pull off the most important night in mouse theater without their star? Somehow, the show must go on!
The diva Adelaide will be played by Emily Skinner best known for her work in The Full Monty and Side Show. Harold will be played by Paul Carlin who is a Goodspeed’s favorite. Broadway veterans Larry Cahn will play Emil, , Pippin is Noah E. Galvin, Toby is Laura Jordan, Curly is Christian Delcroix, Alessa Neeck is Wendy, Caesar Samayoa is Henry and Rose will be played by Allie Schauer. Sky will be played by Jeremiah James.
