The circus is coming to Greenwich. Beginning Friday, Feb. 28, St. Catherine’s Players will be performing the musical Barnum, a show that traces the career of America’s greatest showman, P.T. Barnum.

The original Broadway production starring acclaimed actors Glenn Close and Jim Dale received many accolades, including multiple Tony Awards. Now, St. Catherine’s Players will be presenting their rendition of the popular musical.

Starring in the musical are Greenwich actors Tony Morello and Rebecca Cooper. The cast of all ages also includes Joe Guttadauro, Karen Morello, Christina Kompar, Greg Suss, Marissa Caro and Stephen Hohl. The musical is directed by Stuart Adelberg, who has led St. Catherine’s player for more than two decades and Rita Lapcevic, musical director, who has been with the players for more than ten years.

Volunteers are needed for tech crew, set building/decoration and costumes. Any interested volunteers should email [email protected], and include any relevan expertise.
