Casts for this season included a few new names for Hampton, some of which have gone on to become 'regulars' and new favorites with our audiences. Steve Witting, a big Hampton favorite and veteran of many summers beginning as a 'workshopper', then EMC (apprentice) and then star, came back to play the 'nerd' in the first show.
Priscilla Allen and daughter Jennifer Alen, both talented and seasoned performers worked together onstage for the first time in CABARET. This production was particularly strong and our audiences gave many standing ovations.
BURLESQUE '89 was a highlight of the season, and this time featured Tony Lillo and Michael Paternostra, two very talented performers.
CHICAGO brought us leading man Lee Chew and the very talented Jennifer Smith who paired with the other Jennifer to give us a wonderful show.
RUN FOR YOUR WIFE was the comedy that finished off this season with a delightful bit of fluff ... always popular witn the Hampton audiences.
