Musical MainStage presents: RING-DING-A-DING: SINATRA & CO. Sinatra may have been king, but he reigned over an era that introduced dozens of our favorite artists—folks like Rosemary Clooney, Bobby Darin, Billie Holiday, Steve and Eydie. We’ll revisit the big band and swingin’ sounds of the forties, fifties, and sixties with some of the area’s most beloved performers:
BOB HIRSCHI is excited to take a quick break from his usual Musical MainStage narration duties to perform with great friends. Recent credits: ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (Alchemist Theatre) and HAMLET (Off the Wall Theatre). Bob also sings with the 9-piece classic rock band, Groove Therapy.
TOMMY LUECK keeps busy as front man vocalist for the award-winning Swing Nouveau and as one of the Four Guyz in Dinner Jackets, Wisconsin’s premier doo-wop group. Favorite acting credits include LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, INTO THE WOODS, and A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM.
A member of the Musical MainStage family for ten seasons, PEGGY PETERSON RYAN also serves as the producer of Sunset’s SideNotes Cabaret Series. She looks forward to reuniting and performing with Becky Spice and Kay Stiefel for December’s cabaret, HOLIDAY BELLES.
With more than 25 years of professional stage experience, BECKY SPICE has appeared with Skylight Music Theatre, First Stage, Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, and the Madison Rep. Her one-woman shows have been seen at hundreds of corporate, private, and community events throughout the region.
Our Rising Star, GRACE BECKER, is a junior at Divine Savior Holy Angels High School and currently appearing in the First Stage Children’s Theater production ELLA ENCHANTED. She also performs regularly with the band Mr. Lucky Syndicate.
With KERRY HART at the piano, TIM KARTH on drums, and SUSAN LOVERIDGE and JONATHAN STEWART providing play-by-play, it’s sure to be a ring-a-ding-ding good time!
