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.

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.
