Forever Plaid - Meadow Brook Theatre
MAY 23 - JUNE 19 | MEADOW BROOK THEATRE
MUSIC DIRECTOR, CONDUCTOR, PIANIST
I was honored to receive a phone call from Terry Carpenter, Resident Stage Manager at Meadow Brook Theatre (MBT), asking if I was able to step in and serve as Music Director and Conductor for the final production of Meadow Brook's 50th Anniversary Season, "Forever Plaid". I've played several shows at MBT as Keyboard 2/Associate Conductor, but this was my first show as MD at MBT- and this show was with an AEA (Actor's Equity) cast! It's been a wild ride - dealing with medical issues and legal issues elsewhere in my family, fitting it into the schedule - but it's been immensely rewarding. My cast is working exceptionally hard to get these challenging harmonies clean and crisp, and I have the pleasure of working with Nick Matthews & Andrew Lloyd (and Greg Platter, subbing) as my on-stage band. The show runs through June 19th, and I highly encourage everyone to come see the show!
"FOREVER PLAID" BAND:
Music Director/Pianist/Conductor: Matthew Croft
