Three more dreamers to meet today: Dane Stokinger, Maisha Mercee’ and Steven Sofia.
We’re pleased to have Dane back with us for this production. Dane was last seen at The 5th in last season’s production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying as Mr. Gatch. He’s also been on our stage in A Christmas Story and Monty Python’s Spamalot. You may also recognize Dane from his roles at Seattle Children’s Theatre (the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz and Caractacus Potts in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) or his roles at Village Theatre (Jerry in Full Monty, Mike in Trails and Morris Brummell in No Way to Treat a Lady). He’ll be playing the role of Anselmo.
We’re thrilled to have Maisha making her debut at The 5th in Man of La Mancha! Mercee’ is a trained dancer of both the Debbie Allen and Alvin Ailey schools. She was also a dancer/teaching artist at the company CONTRA-TIEMPO.
We’re excited to welcome Steven for the first time at The 5th as well! Steven is currently the Artist-in-Residence at the UW’s Musical Theater program. He has been seen on Broadway in Chita Rivera’s The Dancer’s Life; Kiss Me, Kate; Chicago; Beauty and the Beast; Guys and Dolls; Betty Buckley: An Evening at Carnegie Hall and Applause at Encores.
Don’t miss Dane, Maisha, Steven and the rest of our dreamers in this epic, classic musical. Man of La Mancha runs October 7-30, 2016. Click here to find a full cast listing, more about the show, and to purchase tickets.
