F. Michael Haynie (former Boq – Broadway), Chelsea Packard (née Krombach) (former ensemble, u/s Elphaba – Broadway; former swing, u/s Nessarose – 1st Ntl. Tour) and William Youmans (former Dr. Dillamond – Chicago, Broadway) have been cast in Bucks County Playhouse’s upcoming production of SUMMER OF ’42. This production will run July 25 through August 11. Mr. Haynie will play the role of Oscy, Ms. Packard will play the role of Dorothy and Mr. Youmans will play the role of Mr. Sanders/Walter Winchel.
SUMMER OF ’42, according to BCP, “is a coming of age story about three teenage boys living on a tiny island off the coast of Maine during the time when America was in the middle of a full-scale war and men were lining up to join the army. It becomes a summer they will never forget.”
For each of the 22 performances of SUMMER OF ’42, the Bucks County Playhouse will honor a military veteran. To nominate a veteran, theatregoers can fill out the nomination form found on the BCP website.
All selected veterans will receive two complimentary tickets to the performance in which they will be honored and will receive a military discount code for their friends and family to join. Nominees who have had active duty service during any time period are eligible.
Bucks County Playhouse is located at 770 South Main Street in New Hope, PA. For more information and tickets, call (215) 862-2121 or visit BCPTheater.org.
