Bradford Little Theatre is proud to announce their cast for the upcoming show “JAWS: The Musical.”

May 19, 2014

It is unusual for an actor to be killed off twice in the same show, but Bridgette Martin of Olean, NY will do just that. During the opening scene of Bradford Little Theatre’s “JAWS The Musical” Martin plays tipsy Chrissie Watkins who goes out for an evening swim and within minutes becomes a tasty midnight snack. Two scenes later, Martin’s character Alexis Kintner gets eaten by the shark as she plays in the water. Martin has been in several community theater performances in Olean including “Annie,” “Funny Girl” and “Ladies Shorts” and she is also the choreographer for this show.

Save the Date! Auditions announced for JAWS: The Musical!

Apr 10, 2014

Bradford Little Theatre show director and board member Kristin Asinger and musical director Shane Oschman invite all adult comedic actors and singers to audition for “JAWS the Musical.” This musical comedy was written in 2010 by Kyle McCoy and is full of hilarious songs and ridiculous moments. “I’m excited about this production because it is a hysterical concept to take a horror film and produce light-hearted musical numbers around it” states Oschman.


Thirty Years Later… “The Music Man” Returns!

Mar 28, 2014

It was November 1984 when Bradford Central Christian High School’s Drama Club presented the famous musical “The Music Man.” Under the direction of Father Jay Schultz and musical director Kathleen O’Mara, the cast and crew dedicated the show in memory of the playwright, Meredith Willson who passed away that same summer in 1984. Playing the lead character Professor Harold Hill, sophomore Bob Cucuzza took on a challenging role with a lot of fast-talking and memorable songs. He played other roles at BCCHS and had no idea how much his high school acting experiences would go on to shape his future. It was during his first show “Arsenic and Old Lace” that Bob got hooked on theater. “It was my first time on stage and I was a really awkward kid. When the audience laughed, I got bitten really hard by the acting bug.” Cucuzza is returning to Bradford for the opening night of Bradford Little Theatre’s “The Music Man” at Bradford Area High School’s auditorium on Friday. He will introduce the musical, share the benefits of Community Theater and be reunited with musical director Kathleen O’Mara and her daughter Nicole Bednez who in 1984 played the character of Zaneeta Shinn. Bednez is the director and a choreographer for this upcoming show.
