News   Tom Deckman Will Be Arnie the Doughnut in George Howe-Frances Limoncelli Musical at NYMF
 
Tom Deckman, who was seen on Broadway in Monty Pyton's Spamalot and Good Vibrations, will play the title role in Arnie the Doughnut, which will be presented as part of the 2012 New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) beginning July 13 at the PTC Performance Space.

Directed and choreographed by Adam Arian, the musical, which features a score by George Howe and a book by Frances Limoncelli, will also feature Jane Blass and Stephanie Fritto. Performances will continue through July 21.

Based on the children's story of the same name by Laurie Keller, here's how the musical is described: "Arnie, a lovable chocolate-frosted doughnut, is the happiest pastry in the bakery when he’s finally selected to be taken home by a new owner. But when mild-mannered Mr. Bing tries to eat the unsuspecting Arnie, both are in for the surprise of their lives!"

Other members of the creative team include musical director Daniel Feyer, scenic designer Ken Larson, lighting designer Greg Mitchell, costume designer Elizabeth Wislar and sound designer Victoria DeIorio.

Now in its ninth year, the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF), which provides a launching pad for the next generation of musicals, is the largest annual musical theatre event in America.

The PTC Performance Space is located at 555 West 42nd Street. For more information and tickets, call (212) 352-3101 or visit NYMF.org or ArnieTheDoughnutMusical.com.
