SHE LOVES ME, a One Night Only, Benefit Performance for CMT
Join Bartlesville native and Children’s Musical Theatre alum Kennedy Caughell and an
ensemble composed of professional New York actors and members of the Bartlesville
community for a one-night- only performance of the classic Broadway musical She Loves Me
benefitting Children’s Musical Theatre of Bartlesville.
Whisked away to a tiny perfumery on streets of 1930s Budapest, audiences meet shop clerks
Amalia and Georg, who don't always see eye to eye. However, they do have one thing in
common: They both write love letters to secret admirers. Full of twists and turns, old world
charm, and holiday cheer, She Loves Me has inspired popular films The Shop Around the
Corner and You’ve Got Mail. Nominated for five Tony Awards in 1964 and eight Tony Awards
in 2016, She Loves Me features music by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof)
and a book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret) that is sure to delight the whole family.
Fresh off her Broadway debut in Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, which earned 12
Tony Award nominations in 2017, this one-night- only production will be Caughell’s first return
to a Bartlesville stage since graduating from Bartlesville High School. Reuniting with fellow
CMT alum, Brad Gray, who recently worked as Lighting Programmer for the 2017 Broadway
revival of The Little Foxes starring Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon, and local director Susan
Mueller, Caughell is bringing together New York professionals and community talent to give
back to the local arts organization that provided the inspiration and training for her career in
Professional actors, Tim Fraser, Kristen Sandler, Kenny Francoeur, Carter Ellis, Guy Mannick,
and Jim Barrow, and local actors, Stan Mueller and Asher Brewer, will be cast in principal
roles. The ensemble will include Bartlesville’s own Tobin Asher, Chellie Bea, Doug Boudreaux,
Helen Bumpus, Reagan Colaw, Diana Farris, Glen Hale, Ina Hindman, Troy Martin, Megan
Stewart, and Kellen Watt.
