MISS GULCH RETURNS! Live On Stage, September 9 - 19

Knock knock knock. "Almira, you're on in two minutes." "Thanks. What town are we in tonight?" "Catskill, NY." "Catskill?? You've GOTTA be kidding me..."

She's back! That ultimate spinster and notorious terrorizer of neighborhood children and their pets gets a post 'Wizard of Oz' lease on life with her own autobiographical lounge act! "Miss Gulch Returns!", in all the glory Hollywood denied her, to tell her side of the story in this hilarious and unexpectedly touching one-man musical revue by Fred Barton, coming to Catskill's Bridge Street Theatre for eight performances only September 9-19, 2021.

This musical valentine to the romantically disenfranchised (across all categories) stars Steven Patterson as Almira Gulch, searching for love and performing her heart out in venues where, to say the very least, she's not likely to find it. Accompanying Mr. Patterson on the piano is the irreplaceable Tom Judson. The production is staged and designed by BST Artistic Director John Sowle with costumes by Michelle Rogers. Production Stage Manager is Eve Kelly.

Fred Barton is an acclaimed composer, lyricist, orchestrator, conductor, and actor. His arrangements are played regularly by the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall and major symphonies nationwide. On Broadway and National Tours he has conducted Anthony Quinn in "Zorba", Hal Prince's "Cabaret", Cy Coleman's "City of Angels" and Robert Goulet in "Camelot".
