    Comic Strip Comes Alive in "Li'l Abner" by the Moonlight Players of Clermont 
    Wednesday, May 13, 2009

    The United States government needs a place to continue their nuclear bomb tests. They search the nation for the “most useless” piece of property and find, without a doubt, it’s Dogpatch, the hometown of the comic strip Li’l Abner by Al Capp.

    The musical of the same title by the Moonlight Players of Clermont opens with the town folks getting the bad news. The evacuation date is temporarily postponed when scientists discover that the tonic Mammy Yokum (Susan Knapp) has been doling out daily to Li’l Abner (Matthew Waldeck), called Yokumberry, has a steroid-like effect. Now it’s a comic book tussle between the government, Dogpatchers, and General Bullmoose (George Perez).

    You could not get better physical casting for Li’l Abner than Waldeck. He towers over everyone. He moves and acts well conveying the backwoods simplicity of the hero. His singing, however, does not equal that of the other leads.

    LI'L ABNER PROGRAM BOOK (2009)
    Comic-book artist gets to perform in front of set he designed
    By Christine Cole |SPECIAL TO THE SENTINEL May 8, 2009

    CLERMONT —

    George Perez is a well-known comic-book artist, drawing for Marvel and DC Comics since the early 1970s.

    When the Moonlight Players production of the musical comedy Li'l Abner opens today at 8 p.m., Perez will play the ruthless capitalist General Bullmoose in front of a set he designed.

    "I just wanted a backdrop," director Cathy MacEachern said. "Then he got on a roll. Now I'm getting this great set that looks like it came out of a comic book."

    Perez's design is particularly appropriate for a play based on characters from a comic strip by Al Capp.

    (excerpt)

    The play will continue through June 7 at the Moonlight Warehouse Theatre, 732B W. Montrose St., Clermont. Performances begin at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, as well as 2 p.m. Sunday.

    Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students.

    For reservations or for more information, call 352-319-1116.

    Additional Details on Li'l Abner and the Moonlight Warehouse Theatre

    From George Perez



    I saw Tom Smith's generous plug for my appearance in LI'L ABNER starting May 8th and just wanted to make one correction and provide one additional piece of info.

    First the address of the Moonlight Warehouse Theatre is 732 Montrose Street.

    Also,I've drawn an original comic strip that will be featured in the program book. It's a LI'L ABNER strip featuring the cast members in their respective roles. Three panels are included here out of the 13 in the actual strip. The producers will be providing me with extra copies of the program book so that I may sell them to any Pérez completists out there. All proceeds will go to the Moonlight Players, a non-profit organization.

    After this I will be performing in THE MIKADO, which is why I will not be attending the San Diego show this year.

    Take care,
    GPz

    From Ilke
    Looks like the Moonlight Players program books for Barefoot in the Park, The Dinner Game, Much Ado About Nothing, Carousel, Babes in Toyland, Li'l Abner (and possibly others, as well as the rest of the shows for 2009?) were designed by George. 
     
    (Vu: As previously mentioned by George Perez with "performance bug", he may actually appear on stage - at the very least in the audience).

Determined to provide for his family, Billy turns to crime. During a botched robbery attempt, the ill-fated lovers are parted by death.

    Chicago

    January 9-February 8, 2009

    Chicago , the Musical! “Murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery--all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts." So begins the musical Chicago--and creators John Kander, Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse never back off from their bold and sinister promise. Chicago is the kiss-and-tell tale of Roxie Hart, a chorus girl who kills her lover as a career move; Billy Flynn, a sharp lawyer who turns Roxie into a celebrity; and Velma Kelly, a dancing jailbird with an ear for headlines and an eye for talent. Chicago, winner of six 1997 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival, is a loving look back at vaudeville, a timely satire of the justice system, and a reminder of what great theater can be.

Eugene and five other assorted enlisted men suffer under a hard nosed D.I., confront the daily "mess" served up in the mess hall, join together in a visit to a local prostitute and, generally, become Adults.

    LI’L ABNER

    May 8-June 7, 2009

    Based on the comic strip Li'l Abner by Al Capp, the show is, on the surface, a broad spoof of hillbillies but is also a pointed satire taking on any number of topics, ranging from an incompetent government to standards of masculinity. The plot centers on the town of Dogpatch, declared the "most unnecessary town" in the U.S. and is set to be turned into a nuclear testing site until they find the interesting side effects of the baby tonic that Abner has been fed all his life by his mother, Mammy Yokum.
