Henley-Hicks lands big Seattle Musical Theatre role

South Kitsap’s Sara Henley-Hicks will play Judas in Seattle Musical Theatre’s upcoming production of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” according to a release from the company.

Billie Wildrick, a staple of the Seattle musical-theater scene, makes her directing debut with the production, with Brandon Peck serving as musical director. Peck filled the same role when Ovation! Musical Theatre Bainbridge mounted “Superstar” on Bainbridge Island in December 2013. He also music directed last winter’s “Peter Pan” for Ovation!

Two other actors easily recognizable to Kitsap  audiences also are in the cast: DeSean Halley, who has numerous credits with Bainbridge Performing Arts, will play Simon, and Justin Carrell, who has appeared on several local stages, is in the ensemble.

Henley-Hicks appeared in numerous Kitsap shows at Port Orchard’s Western Washington Center for the Arts, and more recently at Cornish College of the Arts. She was in SMT’s recent production of “Sweet Charity.”



Intiman hosts Cornish production of ‘Edwin Drood’

On the subject of Kitsap student-actors with big things going on in Seattle, Port Orchard’s Sara Henley-Hicks is in the cast of Cornish College of the Arts’ production of “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” which will be performed April 10 to 14 at the Intiman Theatre on the Seattle Center grounds.

Sara will be familiar to regular attendees at Port Orchard’s Western Washington Center for the Arts, where she’s appeared in a number of shows — most recently last summer’s “Into the Woods” — before moving on to Cornish.

“Edwin Drood” is Cornish’s first production at Intiman. It’s a musical based on an unfinished novel by Charles Dickens, and the audience at each performance is invited to decide the ending.

Performances are 8 p.m. nightly, with a 2 p.m. matinee on April 14. Ticket prices are $15 to $8. Information: 206-726-2787, cornish.edu.
