What is your current project?

Narrator & Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?

We are performing Joseph at Maggie’s Little Theatre in Middle Village. It’s a great fit for the production because it’s a family show – it’s upbeat – and it has a fantastic ensemble that has many opportunities on stage whether they’re singers, dancers or both!

What’s next for you?

Dena – Co-Production Coordinator for Royal Star Theatre’s Young Frankenstein

What is the name of the last show you saw?

Gary: Something’s Afoot

Dena: Little Women the Musical

Any advice for your peers?

Gary: Preparation is key – especially for auditions. Prepare a piece that suits you and be honest with yourself. Don’t try to sing something that isn’t right for your voice or that you aren’t 100% comfortable with.

Dena: Work with different directors, musical directors, and choreographers. What one sees in you may not be what another one does. In addition, everyone works differently. Use what you learn to your advantage for the next experience.

Gary Ducoing has performed in a variety of productions throughout Queens and Long Island. Some of his favorite roles include Josh in Big, Dauntless in Once Upon a Mattress, Mortimer in Arsenic and Old Lace, Detective Cioffi in Curtains and Billy in Anything Goes.

Dena Civello has worked both as a performer, stage manager and director throughout Queens and Long Island. Memorable projects include Vivienne in Legally Blonde, Ms. Bell in Fame, Broadway Blockbusters 100 Years of Broadway, and directing productions at Hicksville High School for the past seven years.
