ALTAR BOYZ And BEEHIVE to be Presented by Forestburgh Playhouse

Celebrating its 75th Anniversary as "The Miracle of the Forest," Forestburgh Playhouse, under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director Franklin Trapp, will present in Rep: the heavenly musical hit ALTAR BOYZ and the 60s salute to girl groups BEEHIVE with performances July 13-25.

On the Playhouse Mainstage:

One of Off-Broadway's longest-running musicals, the award-winning musical Altar Boyz will be directed and choreographed by Chaz Wolcott with music direction by Noah Turner. Making their Forestburgh Playhouse debuts are Ethan Van Slyke (Matthew), John Zamborski (Mark), Anthony DaSilva (Luke), Preston Perez (Juan) and Andrew Faria (Abraham).

Altar Boyz features a book by Kevin Del Aguila, and music and lyrics by Gary Adler & Michael Patrick Walker. Conceived by Marc Kessler & Ken Davenport, Altar Boyz tells the holy inspiring story of 5 small-town boys - Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham - trying to save the world one screaming fan at a time. With angelic voices, sinfully spectacular dancing and a touching story, Altar Boyz is destined to rock the masses of all denominations!

Full of sharp parody and irreverent humor, this spoof about a heavenly guy-group is adored by audiences and critics alike. With an extraordinary mix of side-splitting songs convincing enough to be played on MTV, uncontrollable laughs and lighthearted fun, this award-winning and totally original new musical is 90 minutes of pure delight that's suitable for all ages and will have the whole family laughing and singing along.

T.C. Kincer returns to Forestburgh Playhouse as Music Director. Making their Playhouse debuts are Liat Shuflita, Crystal Wright, Sydney Jaye, Elise Shangold, Logan Saad and Susana Wickstrom.
