Players to present ‘Wild Party’

Seneca Community Players is throwing a party this summer and everyone is invited.

“The Wild Party,” directed by Pam Rapoza with Dewey Fleszar as musical director, will be presented over two weekends in August at the Delavan Theatre on the New York Chiropractic College campus in Seneca Falls.

Adapted from a book-length poem written in and about the Roaring Twenties, Andrew Lippa's “The Wild Party” tells of one wild evening in the Manhattan apartment shared by Queenie (played by Rae Stanley) and Burrs (played by Nick Bessette), a vaudeville dancer and a vaudeville clown. In a relationship marked by vicious behavior and recklessness — mirroring the time in which they live — they decide to throw a party to end all parties.

Also in the cast are RJ Rapoza as Black, Emily Swensen as Kate, Chad Bourne as Eddie, Laura Feligno as Mae, Jeb Albro as Jackie, Margaret Griffin as Madeline, Tricia Burnett-Mooneyhan as Delores, Loralei Canne as Nadine, David Fleszar as Oscar, Randy Homack as Phil, Michael Stein as Sam, and Jason Parker as Max.

The chorus is comprised of Ian Johnson, Evan McNear, Ted Liddell, Kimberly Rinaldo, Suzamie Farnsworth, Dorothy Thompson, Chris Woodworth, Melinda Rosini and Debbie Roper.
