Denton Yockey, Starlight Theatre interview by Kellie Houx
The Starlight’s summer shows include The Addams Family the first week in July. This musical was on Broadway in 2010 and the U.S. tour started last year with some revamping and revisions with Douglas Sills, who played the lead in The Scarlet Pimpernel, as Gomez and actress Sara Gettelfinger as Morticia. Memphis, which runs July 10-15, is another Tony Award winner from the 2010 award season. These first three shows mark contemporary musicals that are fairly new within the realm of musical theater. “We sure try to make everyone happy with our season,” says Denton Yockey, president and executive producer at Starlight.
