Casting is now complete for the Signature Theatre's upcoming production of the new holiday musical Silver Belles, which will be presented November 22-December 24 in the ARK Theatre in Shirlington, VA.
Directed by Signature Theatre artistic director Eric Schaeffer, this world premiere features a book by Allyson Currin, music by Matt Conner, and lyrics by Conner and Stephen Gregory Smith.
The cast will include Donna Migliaccio (Signature’s Sunday in the Park with George) as Oralene, Dan Manning (Signature’s The Fix) as Earl, Nova Y. Payton (Signature’s Dreamgirls) as Gloria, Naomi Jacobson (Signature’s Cabaret) as Bo Jack, Peggy Yates (Signature’s Crossing) as Ruth Ann, and Ilona Dulaski (Signature’s Witches of Eastwick) as Berneice.
“When Oralene, the longtime director of small town Sylva Ridge’s Christmas Pageant, suddenly passes away, the Silver Belles must come to the rescue!” according to press notes. “With the spirit of Oralene looking on, the sterling-hued vixens band together, discover their talents and pull out all the stops to keep the beloved pageant alive.”
The production will have choreography by Karma Camp; musical direction by Warren Freeman; scenic design by James Kronzer; costume design by Kathleen Geldard; and lighting design by Kelly Rudolph. The associate director is Walter Ware III; the production stage manager is Julie Meyer; and the production assistant is Sophia Lewin Adams.
