Bethany College Theater Department Announces Musical Cast

Press release submitted by Tina Goodwin, Director of Communications & Marketing, Bethany College

LINDSBORG, KAN. The Bethany College Theatre Department has announced the cast for the upcoming Spring Interterm Musical, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.”
Two performances, Friday, February 3 and Saturday, February 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Burnett Center of Performing Arts on the Bethany campus, are scheduled. The long one-act musical comedy first appeared on Broadway in 2005. The show centers on a fictional spelling bee featuring a quirky cast of characters.
An unusual aspect of the show is that four real audience members are invited on stage to compete in the spelling bee alongside the actors. There is some language and adult content and probably best for mature audiences, according to Greg LeGault, director and chair of the college’s theatre department.
The musical cast includes:
Vice-Princiapal Panch – Isaiah Fabrizius, Wakeeney, Kansas
William Barfee – Christian Cooper, Effingham, Kansas
Chip Tolentino – Mikey Baker, Minneapolis, Kansas
Leaf Coneybear (Carl Dad) – Noah Parks, Salina, Kansas
Olive Ostravsky – Annie Halterman, Colorado Springs, Colorado
Logainne Schwartzandgrubenniere – Allison Waymire, Baldwin City, Kansas
Marcy Park – Alyssa Wierman, Brownell, Kansas
Mitch Mahoney (Dan Dad, Olive’s Dad) – Landon Slipke, New Almelo, Kansas
Rona Lisa Perretti (Olive’s Mom) – Kayln Powers, Lindsborg, Kansas
Jesus – Freddie Loeffler, Hesston, Kansas

Stage manager – Sydney Johnson, Assaria, Kansas
