ALTAR BOYZ Opens 4/4 at Chromolume Theatre
Altar Boyz is a foot-stomping, rafter-raising musical comedy satire about a fictitious Christian boy-band on the last night of their national "Raise the Praise" tour. The Boyz are five all-singing, all-dancing heartthrobs from Ohio - Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham. With their tight harmonies and spectacular choreography, the Altar Boyz will delight as they perform their signature hits such as "Rhythm In Me," "The Calling," and "I Believe," all the while trying to reduce the number of burdened souls in the theatre to zero by the end of the concert.
The Chromolume cast will feature (in alphabetical order) Joey Acuna, Jason Chacon, Michael Marchak, Craig McEldowney, and Tyler Vess. Scenic and sound design are by James Esposito, lighting design is by Craig Batory, costume design is by Wes Jenkins, and the stage manager is Lauren J. Peters.
