Photo Flash: First Look at Marshal Kennedy Carolan, Patrick Ortiz and More in NCT's ALTAR BOYZ
North Carolina Theatre (NCT), the region's premier producer of professional Broadway musicals, is excited to welcome the Altar Boyz to "rock the masses of all denominations by spreading the good news and soothing the troubled souls of Raleigh through the glory of sweet pop music." The runaway off-Broadway sensation, Altar Boyz plays July 12th through 21st for thirteen performances in AJ Fletcher Theater at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts (formerly Progress Energy Center). BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below!
Casting includes Marshal Kennedy Carolan (Matthew) of Broadway's Hair, Patrick Elliott (Mark), Patrick Ortiz (Juan) of Broadway's West Side Story, Tripp Hampton (Abraham), and Garner native Jeremy Woodard (Luke). Woodard graduated from Garner HS and received his BFA from East Carolina University. Woodard began his professional career in NC Theatre's production of Carousel when he was 15 years old. He most recently appeared on Broadway as "Stacee Jaxx" in Rock of Ages and will be appearing in the upcoming Diner on Broadway. Other credits include Glory Days, Hairspray, Miss Saigon and television's The Big C and Smash.
Altar Boyz was conceived by Marc Kessler and Ken Davenport, with a book by Kevin Del Aguila and music and lyrics by Gary Adler and Michael Patrick Walker. The NC Theatre production will be directed by Carlos Encinias, who served as Dance Captain and standby on the original off-Broadway production and has also appeared in Broadway's Mamma Mia and Good Vibrations.
