SCP announce cast for ‘All Dressed Up & Nowhere To Go’

This spring, Seneca Community Players invites you to where “Witness” meets “La Cage Aux Folles,” where ‘plain’ collides with ‘fabulous,’ and the old world of horse and buggies and hooks and eyes slams into the new world of laptop computers, sequined gowns and the electric light bulb.SCP presents Catherine Filloux’s “All Dressed Up And Nowhere To Go” at the Delavan Theatre on the New York Chiropractic College campus in Seneca Falls, May 12, 13 and 14. This quirky comedy about a group of Amish and a group of transvestites stranded together at a motel in Buffalo during a blizzard is locally produced for the stage by Susan Stewart Sinicropi and directed by Kimberly Brown.Cultures and values clash when Jacky/Jake (Kevin Schoonover), a stressed-out businessman who cross-dresses on weekends, hopes to have a relaxing retreat with his friend Barbie (Jim Andreas) — only to discover he’s never been closer to home. Peter M. Brown and Cyndi Park portray an Old Order Amish father and his fiery teenage daughter caught up in a timeless tale of generational conflict. Also included in the cast are Melissa Baxter as Joan the overworked motel manager who’s seen it all; Loren Schmidtgall as Peter, the befuddled and bewildered boyfriend; Joe Green as Cleo and Toni, a clueless drag queen duo; and Ellie Albro as stoic Aunt Sarah.The show’s stage managers are Rhonda Jasper, who is also responsible for props, and Kathy Hadley. Jeff Winston is technical director and lighting designer, Steve Mitchell is sound designer, and Peter Brown is master carpenter and set designer with Kim Brown. Costumes are by Margo Schmidtgall and publicity is by Liz Thurston and Kevin Schoonover.
