AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland/CANAPI
Benefit Production

Book and Lyrics by Christopher Dimond
Music by Michael Kooman
Based on a concept by Van Kaplan

Show Description:
Monica Olejko stars as Judge Jackie, adding the ATGC/CANAPI benefit to a resume that includes appearances as an actress, singer, dancer, and cabaret performer, as well as an array of directing, choreography, and teaching credits. A longtime favorite of our audiences, Kevin Kelly (2004, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2014, 2016 productions), plays bailiff Henry, who harbors secret feelings for the judge. Another newcomer to our stage, Brian Altman, takes the role of Shane, the fast-talking TV executive focused on improving Judge Jackie’s ratings; Brian has appeared at theatres all over Cleveland, most recently in “City of Angels” at Beck Center. An assortment of colorful characters, family members, litigants and defendants are portrayed by four versatile comic actors: Trey Gilpin (2016), Rachel Spence (2012, 2013, 2014, 2016), Pat Miller (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016), and Jeffrey Glover, joining the production for the first time.

The orchestra, led by Mr. Marshall, features Gregory Cross on drums and Tim Keo on bass. Mr. Keo is the only person to have appeared onstage in every ATGC/CANAPI benefit since 2003.

“Judge Jackie: Disorder in the Court” is recommended for mature audiences. It contains adult language and sexual situations. Parents are requested to use their discretion in determining if this production may be suitable for their children.
