Cast Announced for Peninsula Players 77th Season

Artistic Director Greg Vinkler

Peninsula Players Theatre announces cast members for its 77th season with a mix of new and classic comedies, a Broadway musical, a suspenseful mystery and a glimpse into the backstory of a legendary sports icon.

“To start all the fun and open our 77th season, we have the Wisconsin première of Opus by Michael Hollinger,” said Artistic Director Greg Vinkler. Opus takes a behind-the-music look at the passions and personalities of a world-class string quartet that is forced to find a replacement prior to its White House debut. “It is filled with humor, insight, and just a few artistic egos,” Vinkler said.

Opus performs June 12 – 24 and features veteran Players, including Lee E. Ernst, Tom Mula, Tim Monsion, Cassandra Bissell and Vinkler. Brendon Fox is making his directorial debut with Opus.

The Nerd performs June 27 – July 22. The cast includes Ernst, Monsion, Erin Noel Grennan, Karen Janes Woditsch, Sean Fortunato, Bennett Rabach and Paul Slade Smith.

Chicago the Broadway musical takes the stage July 25 – August 12. The cast features Slade Smith, Monsion, Fortunato, Mula, Grennan, Angie Schoofs Stemberg, Ericka Mac and Jennifer Knox. Ensemble members include Adam Estes, Christina Myers, Monique Hale, Callie Johnson, Lucy Zukaitis, Travis Porchia, Adam Fane, Rebecca Finnegan and Gary Carlson.

Murder on the Nile performs from August 15 – September 2. Cast includes Neil Friedman, Carmen Roman, Slade Smith, Grennan, Johnson, Mac, Monsion, Mula, Woditsch and Brandon Dahlquist.

Lombardi, playing from September 5 – October 14, closes the season. The cast will include Friedman, Roman, Matthew Brumlow, Dahlquist, Jim Fletcher and Donte Fitzgerald.
