The Studio Theatre Tierra del Sol to Pull Back the Curtain on PRIVATE LIVES
Next month, The Studio Theatre Tierra del Sol (806 San Marino Drive, The Villages, FL) will continue its inaugural season with Private Lives, the award-winning romantic comedy about two couples that are intertwined in more ways than one.
Noel Coward's 1931 masterpiece is one of the most revered comedies in the canon of theatre. Set against the backdrop of glitzy and glamourous 1920's Paris, this hysterical and heartwarming love story examines the comedy and calamity of love and marriage. See the play praised by The New York Times as, "Gorgeous, dazzling and fantastically funny."
Playing the lead role of Amanda Prynne is Lauren Culver, who holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from Millikin University, Decatur, IL. While she's been a fan favorite in Garden Theatre's production of Bonnie and Clyde, she has also been on the most prestigious Florida Stages including Showpalace, Theatrezone, Gen Y Productions, Porthouse Theatre, and the Orlando Repertory Theatre. You may have also caught Culver originating roles in two BroadwayWorld Award winning productions: Anne in Anne Frankenstein, and Patty Andrews in Once I Laughed. Both were performed at the 2015 Orlando Fringe Festival.
Playing her husband, Victor Prynne, is Tyler Beauregard, already becoming a staple at The Studio Theatre, as he just wrapped up Gabe in Next to Normal. Beauregard was just nominated for Best Lead Actor in a Musical for Hair. For which, he was hailed by Broadway World's April Montgomery with, "He has a rarely seen, authentic stage presence that usually presents a bit later in life. My fingers are crossed he has plans to stick around Central Florida for local professional roles." In a review of him in Hair, Broadway World commented that "Beauregard has an incredibly impressive voice, and his commanding stage presence makes you believe that he could inspire this group of young hippies." The Orlando Sentinel has also praised his work in The Drowsy Chaperone stating, "Tyler Beauregard has a pleasing baritone and just the right gee-whiz attitude. His tap dance with co-star Tony Pracek is a first-act highlight."
Also no stranger to The Studio stage is Brian Zealand, who will play the part of Elyot Chase. Zealand recently concluded his portrayal of Dan Goodman in Next to Normal (opposite Beauregard). The cast also includes theatre veteran and Palm Beach Atlantic graduate: Emily Miraglia as Sibyl Chase. The Creative Team is composed of Director Trevin Cooper, Musical Director Gary Powell, Set Designer Kenneth Constant, Technical Director Preston Speaker, Lighting Designer Dan Hopper, Costume Designer Virginia McKinney, Master Electrician Weston Cory, Sound Designer Eric Mielke, Production Manager Heather Ard, and Stage Manager Abigale Bobb.
