Stephen W.G. Uselmann
Of all the 4 Guyz, J.W. is probably the only one to actually remember the 50's. In fact he still has his original Mickey Mouse Club membership card. He has recently been seen onstage as Fagin in Oliver, Rooster in Annie and Max Bialystock in The Producers. He also played Horace Vandergelder in Hello Dolly at the Schauer Arts Center in Hartford and performed several shows including Stephen Sondheims Company at Lake Country Players in Hartland, WI. J.W. hopes you'll all "flip your lids and dig this really gone show".
Peter has had an eclectic career in theatre and media as a singer, actor, producer, writer and director. Favorite roles include Jesus in Godspell, Matt in The Fantastiks, Charlie Brown in You're a Good Man Charlie Brown and Eddie in Lost in Yonkers. Peter has also performed with Royal Viking Cruise Lines and in the resident companies of Beach Blanket Babylon in San rancisco and Dudley Riggs Brave New Workshop on Minneapolis. 4-Ever Fifties marks his return to the stage after a 4 year stint with Sirius XM Radio as an on-air personality. Peter also performs locally in coffee shops, etc. keeping his vocal chops finely tuned. Look for him out and about.
