This July, Amelia Musical Playhouse brings us back to the 1920’s at the picturesque Grand Hotel in Berlin. In this gorgeous musical, we witness the stories of six guests who check into the Hotel and experience the fun, romance, adventure, tragedy and, most important, the Life they experience as a result.
The cast is led by talented Florida Southern College junior and AMP newcomer, Nicholas Jankowski, as the young and charismatic ladies man, Baron Felix von Gaigern. Opposite Jankowski is local librarian Laurel Seymour as the tortured aging ballerina Elizaveta Grushinskaya. AMP veterans Jeff Packer and Adeline Bishop are exquisite to behold as the sickly Jewish bookkeeper, Otto Kringelein, who is searching for Life and Flaemmchen, the beautiful young typist pursuing Hollywood fame. Rounding out this powerhouse cast are Barrett King as Hermann Preysing, the upright businessman faced with an impossible choice, Heather Harding as Raffaela O’Tanyo, a simple dresser with a secret wish, Stovie Weems as Erik Litnauer, the sweet concierge whose wife is having a baby, Mark Cameron as the mobster disguised as a Chauffeur looking to rectify certain debts and Ron Price as Colonel-Doctor Otternschlag, a cynical World War I veteran who serves as the show’s narrator. With extravagant dance numbers and fun abounding, Grand Hotel is going to be a show you will not want to miss!
