Entire cast of “Dolly” deserves standing “O”

I just thought at “Hello Dolly’s” intermission I had laughed harder than I had in a long time at a show. I was wrong,

I sneaked a peek at OCP Les Mis

I slipped into the Les Miserables practice at Orange Community Players last night for a few minutes and was blown away by the music and some of the voices.

I had heard how good it sounded from some of the players and decided to take a peek.

I did not know Shane Taylor had those kind of pipes! He plays the lead of Jean Valjean.

The part of his arch nemesis, Javert was being sung by the understudy. He is someone I am not familiar with, but if that was the understudy; wow!

Doug Rogers is the director and he has done a great job in casting. He is one of the most powerful voices OCP has and he is not even in it; if that tells you anything.

They’ve still got five weeks of rehearsals and haven’t even really started blocking the stage, but the quick sneak peek was impressive.

The show doesn’t start till May, but I’ve heard opening night and some others are almost sold out, so this is one you definitely want to make reservations for.

I’m looking forward to it.
