Las Vegas' DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL to Close Early
Deadline is reporting that DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL, which had its World Premiere at the Crown Theater inside Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on April 15th, will be closing its doors earlier than planned.
Based on the best-selling book The Duck Commander Family by Willie and Korie Robertson, the cast of DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL features Broadway veterans and Las Vegas locals who joined the company in celebration of the Robertson family's rags-to- riches story.The cast portraying America's favorite backwoods family stars Mimi Bessette as Miss Kay, Jesse Lenat as Uncle Si, Ginna Claire Mason as Korie, Ben Thompson as Willie, Tad Wilson as Phil, Russell Arden Koplin as Missy, Mary Little as Jessica, Tommy McDowell as Jase, Matt Stokes as Alan, Haley Swindal as Lisa, and Josh Tolle as Jep. DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL also includes Chelsea Bernier, Christopher Harrod, Charlie Ingram and Cathy Trien. The DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL transports the Louisiana bayou to the Las Vegas stage in a captivating 90-minute show seasoned with all the southern spirit and down-to-earth humor you expect from America's most famous rednecks, the Robertson family. But while the true-to-life, rags-to-riches story behind A&E's mega-hit DUCK DYNASTY will surely please its most loyal fans, audiences unfamiliar with the Robertsons will also find themselves charmed - and even moved - by this surprising tale of faith, food, and family. The DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL features music and lyrics by Robert Morris, Steven Morris and Joe Shane, with a book by Asa Somers, and is directed and choreographed by Jeff Calhoun. The production is designed by Tobin Ost with lighting design by Michael Gilliam, sound design by John Trace, wig and hair design by Charles G. LaPointe, musical supervision by Jesse Vargas, orchestration by Steve Margoshes and casting by Duncan Stewart CSA/Benton Whitley CSA. It is produced by Tommy Mottola and the Dodgers, with Ollawood Productions.
