CAMDEN, Maine – The hysterically funny parody of the cult classic film Mommie Dearest, “Mommie Queerest,” will be at the Camden Opera House for one night only, Friday, November 2 at 8 p.m. The production is brought to Camden by the Camden Harbour Inn in support of Equality Maine and Yes on 1, a cause that is important to all of the actors as well as the owners of the Camden Harbour Inn, Raymond Brunyanszki and Oscar Verest.
The full cast features many of the actors who have performed across the country in this zany all male comedy. Christopher, Joan Crawford’s adopted son, is played by Brian Dunham; Brooks Braselman plays Christina, Joan Crawford’s adopted daughter; playwright Jamie Morris plays Joan Crawford and actor Danny Pintauro, known from the hit TV show “Who’s the Boss,” plays multiple characters.
Pintauro began his professional career at the age of 2 as a model and commercial actor, at age 3 he began a 5 year contract role on CBS-TV’s daytime drama As The World Turns, which was followed by his acclaimed film debut as Tad in Stephen King’s “Cujo.” Other film and television credits include “The Benniker Gang” with Andrew McCarthy, CBS-TV’s Timestalkers, and a two-part season opener on Highway To Heaven with Michael Landon.
Christopher Kenney - well known to Camden Opera House audiences and beyond as drag sensation EDIE and The Mistress of Sensuality, the host and emcee of one of the most popular shows in Las Vegas, Cirque du Soleil’s “Zumanity”, will direct “Mommie Queerest”. Kenney is taking time out of his busy performance schedule to return to Camden, due to his love of the village, the cause, and his desire to bring a Broadway class act to town. Kenney won the LA Weekly Theater Award as Best Comedy Director for his work on “Mommie Queerest,” and was named by Las Vegas City Life readers as Best Local Theater Director for his work on Jamie Morris’ trilogy of plays.
Morris is best known for his stage parodies, which have toured the country since 2003. His other works include The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode and The Silence of the Clams, both of which had world premieres in Provincetown. He lives in Las Vegas and plays Father Mark in the long-running interactive comedy Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding at Bally’s Hotel & Casino.
