"Disaster!" The Musical

The cast performs the opening number “Hot Stuff” in ETC’s season opener, “Disaster!”


Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company) is pleased to announce our 15th season opener, “Disaster!” “Disaster!” is a new musical by Seth Rudetsky and Jack Plotnick. “Disaster!” performances will continue through Aug. 19. Earthquakes, tidal waves, infernos and the unforgettable songs of the 70s take center stage in this homage to classic disaster films.

The year is 1979. All the hottest New York City A-listers are putting on their platform shoes and polyester disco shirts and heading to the grand opening of Manhattan’s first floating casino and discothèque. Little do they know that the pier built to house the huge boat was drilled into the center of a dangerous and unstable fault-line. “Disaster!” is a 1970s disaster movie musical and features songs from the 70s: “Hot Stuff,” “I Am Woman,” “Knock On Wood,” “Daybreak,” “Hooked On A Feeling” and many more!

Directed by Kim Mytelka, choreographed by Jennifer Daugherty, with musical direction by Eduardo Guzman, the musical features several ETC favorites including Cameron Dunbar (Tony), Katie Harrison (Jackie), Justin Gonzalez (Chad), Sarah Meyers (Marianne), Patty Talley (Sister Mary Downey), Alex Petty (Ted Scheider), Sandi Morgan (Shirley Winters), Paul Hager (Maury Winters), Caitlyn Mytelka (Lisa/Ben) and Kyle Crawford (Scott). Making her ETC debut as Levora Verona is Aggie Balka. Rounding out this fantastic cast is a phenomenal ensemble (each portraying several characters) consisting of Brennan Blankenship, Sophia Carraro, Cody House, Holt Kirkindoll, Juliana Miller, and Chris Monteith.

All performances will be at ETC, 2317 Mechanic, in Galveston. Performances are 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. There will be two Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. July 30 and Aug. 6. Tickets to this uproarious musical are $30 for adults and $25 for students and senior citizens.
