Meet the Guyz
Reginald T. Kurschner (High Tenor) has been performing throughout the Milwaukee area in many venues. His credits include Harlequin in TRIUMPH OF LOVE at Skylight Opera Theatre, Will Parker in OKLAHOMA! with Milwaukee Musical Theatre, and Emory in THE BOYS IN THE BAND with Bialystock and Bloom. When he is not seen on the boards, you will find him in the back of the house directing and choreographing with a variety of school levels including college and community theatre productions. If you like the Guyz' moves tonight, know that Reggie is responsible for much of the choreography you see! Reggie loves to read trashy romance novels and watch reruns of reality TV shows. Sometimes when he sings very high, his face turns extremely rosy.
Tommy Lueck (Baritone) is clearly the cutest of the Four Guyz, and doesn't even realize it. He is also somewhat of a rascal. Tommy's professional theatre credits include Puck in A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAMS, Seymour in LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, and Joseph in JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT. As a local Theatre Director, he enjoys both dramatic and musical production. Tommy is a teacher of Advanced Placement Psychology and Abnormal Psychology, which helps him in his work with the Four Guyz. Tommy can also be heard and seen as the front man with Milwaukee's award-winning big band, Swing Nouveau
Most of the props and costumes you will experience in tonight's performance are his handiwork, as he likes to collect things, but is often encouraged by his wife to donate much of it to Goodwill. Tommy's other significant talents include riding a unicycle, blowing bubbles, and hanging out with his dog. Tommy is a resident of Brookfield, WI where he lives with his lovely wife, Nikki, his dog, Blanche, and his cat, Linus.
Joe Fransee (Lead) has been running around, making noise, and causing a scene since he was first allowed in public many years ago. Past credits include Cindy's Prince/The Wolf in INTO THE WOODS at Skylight Music Theatre, Joe Sutter in SPITFIRE GRILL at Northern Sky Theater, and Superman in IT’S A BIRD, IT’S A PLANE, IT’S SUPERMAN at Off the Wall Theatre. Having grown up on a tree nursery and still growing great gobs of goodies in his garden, sometimes you may find him outstanding in the field. When offstage and indoors, he works with wires and computers at UW-Milwaukee and is tolerated by his incredible wife Liz and their three amazing children William, Babette, and Edgar.
Aaron Schmidt (Bass) has been performing since he was a child, although recently spends more time backstage as a lighting and sound designer for several theater companies in the greater-Milwaukee area. Aaron's onstage credits include Finch in HOW TO SUCCEED..., Mayor Shinn in THE MUSIC MAN, and the company of OH! CALCUTTA! His design work includes PETER PAN, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, THE WIZARD OF OZ, LUMBERJACKS IN LOVE, MISS SAIGON, and LES MISERABLES - where he met his beautiful wife, Rhonda. Aaron loves to sing, but he also enjoys being an engineer. He finds measurements and numbers somehow significant, and likes to think about them in general and very specific ways. He's the proud dad of three now, Jaxon, Harper and Dawson. Aaron is also the tallest of the Four Guyz, at six foot three inches, so there's that much more of him to love.
