Next Act Theatre is thrilled to announce that Doug Jarecki will be the emcee of Next Act’s virtual Bravo event on March 13, 2021. Says Jarecki of the honor, “Even as I type these words, it still doesn’t seem possible. Or even advisable. But when David’s first few choices were unable to accept the role, he knew what he had to do.”
“Of all of the incredible performers who have been on the Next Act stage over the years, Jarecki has always been, by far, the most available,” said Cecsarini. “Without question, it is his greatest skill as an actor.”
Jarecki is the Director of Education at Waukesha Civic Theatre and the writer/producer of the holiday show ‘TWAS THE MONTH BEFORE CHRISTMAS (which premiered on the Next Act stage in 2015). He has appeared on stage in numerous Next Act shows (UNSILENT NIGHT, MOTHERHOOD OUT LOUD, 7 STORIES) and for several years was an instructor in the Next Actors Summer Theatre for Teens program.
“I have had so many great experiences with Next Act over the years,” Jarecki said, “whether it’s on stage, in the classroom or in the audience. It’s a special place for the local theatre community, and this will be a great opportunity to showcase that.” Jarecki added, “I am so excited! There are going to be a lot of laughs, and maybe even some tears…. but not from me because I don’t have that kind of range.”
Cecsarini, with a subtle sigh of resignation, agreed.
