And the last cast member of the night is the incomparable Steve Bench, who plays the role of Norman. A little about Steve:
It was the role of Norman in Lancaster Regional Players production of “The Boys Next Door” a few years ago that brought Steve out of theatrical “retirement,” a role he thoroughly enjoyed. So, when he was recently asked to fill in for the same role for the first performances in this production, he immediately said “Oh, boy! Yes!” What a privilege it is to bring life to Norman again! Previous theatrical roles include Vernon Hines in “The Pajama Game,” Lazar Wolf in “Fiddler on the Roof,” Doc in “West Side Story,” Simeon in “Joseph…,” Sam Harris in “George M!,” David in “Enter Laughing,” and David in “Social Security.” Steve was a member of the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus for 27 years. He is a practicing Optometrist and owns his own office in Niagara Falls. He lives in East Amherst with his sons and three rescue cats.
The Boys Next Door runs April 13-16 & 21-23 at St Mary’s High School in Lancaster! Ticket link https://m.bpt.me/event/5737324?fbclid=IwAR0cq5u8NZtgphfaB9AiGlv-Z77fr6_9lb6h-sWzeAeGNG9SMYbb9eXjSI4 !
