Dairymen The Moo-sical opens at Stoughton High School on Oct. 31 for five performances of the new musical comedy written by two sisters from rural Wisconsin.
Directed by Michael Bruno of Bruno's Best Bets on WISC-TV Channel 3 Live at Five, the cast features experienced local talent from the Madison area, a variety of music genres, and guaranteed laughs.
Dairymen The Moo-sical premiered in Kewaskum, in May of this year to full houses.
Agriculture meets theater in this heartwarming, funny and poignant story of two dairy-farming families negotiating life's ups and downs.
The lead character, a 92-year-old dairyman (played by Tom Collins), seasons the story with memories, wit and wisdom that spans nearly a century and give us a glimpse into the past.
"You don't have to know anything about farming to love this show." says Brenda Strack, book writer.
The score, written by Melanie Wiltse, includes "Ya' Gotta Love Cows", "Topside of the Turf", "Big Shotz Blues" "Field of Stars", and "Dairymen's Quar-teat," among many others.
Musical director is Ross Shenker. Cast and crew include: Yannick Henrion, Tom Collins, Bill Utter, Colleen Murphy, Amanda Friday, Bob Moore, Ronna Trapanese, Benny Strack, Mikey Jarlsberg, Ron Brockman, Patt Dischler, Haley Massey, Lisa Bauer, Denise Utter, and Catherine Harris.
