DREAMGIRLS is a huge undertaking for any theatre, but Lyric is committed to doing it right. Here’s some of the most interesting numbers about the show…
1) Each member of The Dreams has 22 costumes. With three members in the singing group, that’s 66 costumes alone!
2) One of our performers- Kristina Love, who will play Lorrell Robinson- is traveling 4,921 miles to be in this production! Love is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, and is currently performing with ALADDIN in Hamburg, Germany.
We have a great cast ready for this show- just check out a few of them below!
OCU graduate Arden Walker will be playing the iconic role of Dororthy. You may remember Arden as Luisa in Lyric’s THE FANTASTICKS.
Jerry Jay Cranford
Jerry Jay Cranford is returning to the Lyric stage, this time as the Cowardly Lion. Jerry Jay was previously in BIG RIVER at Lyric, and has also performed in the Broadway and National Tour companies of LES MISERABLES.
Who better to wear the iconic pink dress? Most recently, she has been seen in LYRIC’S A CHRISTMAS CAROL (Belle), MARY POPPINS (Mrs. Banks), OKLAHOMA! (Gertie), and BIG FISH.
We know no one better to be the wickedest witch there ever was than Renee. She has been seen in countless productions across the state, including Lyric’s THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW, XANADU, EVITA, and THE MUSIC MAN.
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is all about family and community, and Lyric is driven by its mission to enrich its own community of the state of Oklahoma. As a part of that mission, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF will be fully interpreted into American Sign Language (ASL) in every performance, and will feature two Deaf performers- Sandra Mae Frank as Hodel, and Christopher Tester as Perchik.
Two interpreters, Arthur Waldrip and Jesselyn Nakolo, will be incorporated on stage to fully communicate to our Deaf patrons.
This musical within a comedy features a show within a show, and brings some of the most classic musical theatre tropes to life as we watch the fictional 1920s hit, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, play out on stage. Our narrator, known simply as Man in Chair, tells us about his favorite parts of the show as we laugh along with the good- and bad- songs featured in the fictional musical. Check out this clip of Tony Award winner, and past Lyric performer, Beth Leavel, as she sings the signature song from the show, “As We Stumble Along”.
