Hubertus resident Richard Becker has been named a Rising Star for DOWN HOME WITH THE CARPENTERS, the 2nd show of our 2016-17 Musical MainStage Concert Series
The son of Jerry and Karen Becker, Richard is a sophomore at Marquette University High School, where he sings in its select choir and appeared in a production of SWEENEY TODD. His credits also include performances in the Hartford Players’ productions of THE MUSIC MAN, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.
Each of Musical MainStage themed concerts offers one promising high school student an opportunity to work alongside professional singers and musicians.
Richard will join Alison Mary Forbes, Joel Kopischke, Casey Olson and Peggy Peterson Ryan in a show called TWIST AND SHOUT, a 90-minute tribute to classic Beatles tunes. They’ll be joined by Kerry Hart Bieneman on piano, Tim Karth on drums, Tom Koehn on guitar, along with two narrators, Susan Loveridge and Bob Hirschi, who provide background on the music and era.
