CG&SS Cast Member of the Month – Michael Loomis
Michael starred as Don Alhambra Del Bolera in our 2014 performance of The Gondoliers. He is a native of Guilford, recently returned to the Nutmeg State after 36 years in the DC area, where he started out as a writer and editor with National Geographic and then became a full-time performer and director with Washington’s musical, political-comedy troupe, The Capitol Steps. During his 22 year tenure with that group, he starred in more than 6,000 performances nationwide, including two off-Broadway runs. From 1980 to 1995, he performed in more than 30 productions for the Washington Savoyards, the Victorian Lyric Opera Company, and community theatres in the DC area.
Michael’s most treasured theatrical experience was performing in The Gondoliers in 1993 as Guiseppe opposite the D’Oyly Carte Opera’s Geoffery Shovelton as Marco. Michael has also contributed his talents to our Wandering Minstrels outreach programs.
