'Newhart' actors featured in 'Deer Camp' musical
Westmoreland Cultural Trust presents the national tour of “Deer Camp: The Musical” at 8 p.m. Nov. 16 at The Palace Theatre, 21 W. Otterman St., Greensburg. The musical comedy stars Tony Papenfuss and John Voldstad, best known as brothers “Darryl and Darryl” on the 1980s “Newhart” television show set in a Vermont inn. Rounding out the cast are John Kunick and Anthony Zadra.
After decades of hunting trips, the four men have yet to bring home a single deer and the wives are getting suspicious. This season they need to show their wives that they are the mighty hunters they claim to be. This is not so easy when the thought of drinking beer and hanging out in the deer shack is more appealing than freezing in a deer stand. But the men hatch a plan to save their hunting paradise without firing a shot.
The show's songs include “She's Playing Bingo,” “If I Were A Male Dancer,” “Coupon Clippin' Ladies” and “Mighty Hunters.”
Tickets are priced at $20, $25 and $30 and are on sale through The Palace Theatre Box Office at 724-836-8000 or online at www.ThePalaceTheatre.org.
Attendees are invited to wear camo or hunter orange to the show but should leave any weapons at home. The best-dressed hunter will get to meet Papenfuss and Voldstad.
