Who’s Who and constant companions Lucy Dog, Mops and Momma Kitty. PAUL ALLAN (Producer) has been producing the seasons here at Gateway since the 1980’s. It’s hard to believe the number of shows, performers, staff, technicians, etc. he has come in contact with over the years, and the number of personal and professional friendships that developed and remain strong today. Paul’s grandfather (Harry Pomeran) was the first producer of Gateway in 1950, followed by his uncle (David Sheldon), his parents (Ruth and Stan Allan), and together with his sister Robin. Gateway has always been a family business, and each era has brought significant challenges particularly in the 80’s and 90’s when shows became more complicated and technically challenging. Additionally, the grounds changed, the buildings were modernized, and the facilities updated. In the most recent decade, the caliber of the artistic

staff, performers, musicians, and technicians has risen to a level equaling and sometimes surpassing many Broadway shows. It has been difficult to find time to do other projects outside of Gateway seasons, but over the years Paul has been able to work in NYC on various shows in different capacities, run a touring company with shows traveling around the country and abroad, operate a sister theatre in Connecticut, act as consultant and facilitator for the restoration and reopening of the Patchogue Theatre, and maintain a set rental business - where Gateway scenery is used in theatres across the country after appearing on the Gateway stage. Paul appreciates, admires and honors his family’s dedication to the arts and is proud to help continue the legacy. Paul lives in Bellport with his wife Annmarie and their 2 children - Luke 5 and Alexa 3.u

SUMMER 2010

Dolly in my life John Sheridan – Director/Choreographer My history with Hello Dolly! began when I understudied Liza Minnelli in the OffBroadway production, Best Foot Forward. A representative from David Merrick’s office came in to see me and actor David Hartman (who sang “Buckle Down Winsocki” in a huge baritone) for possible auditions for a musical called Dolly, a Damned Exasperated Woman!. Unfortunately, I was told I was too young, being just 16, but David was hired. After the show opened as Hello Dolly!, it became a huge hit and a tour was planned. It would be a “national, international and cultural exchange” tour to several countries, including Russia. In 1964 I auditioned for the role of Barnaby Tucker, the young clerk, and got it! So in February of 1965, Mary Martin starred and Gower Champion directed the international tour of Hello Dolly!, sponsored in part by the state department. We toured for five months throughout the U.S. and Canada, and then we were off to Japan for a month. Before we left the United States, we discovered the Russians had listed our tour as “cancelled” although they had one or two ballet companies touring in the states. After a little research we discovered the cancellations were due to drama over Vietnam, so, while in Japan, we were officially cancelled in Russia. The time we were supposed to be touring Russia was spent becoming somewhat of a huge USO show, playing airplane hangars and using truck beds as our stage in several secret locations throughout Vietnam. We also played in a huge gymnasium in Okinawa and a large theater in Seoul, Korea. We played for thousands of enlisted men, women, military “brass” and many visiting politicians. David Merrick even traveled with us, wearing fatigues - not designer suits.

We had about five of our own traveling musicians while the Japanese orchestra was on tape. Despite the terrible heat, we wore all of our heavy costumes and used little cut outs as our sets. We had a crew from NBC with us filming a documentary on the tour so my parents and my brother watched the nightly news religiously, hoping to catch a glimpse of me in Vietnam. In November 1965 the cast was split up. The chorus and crew returned to the states and formed a new company with Betty Grable, playing in Vegas. The principles went to London to open with a new chorus at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, where we performed for, and shook hands with, the Queen of England, the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret and many others. I stayed for six months, celebrating my 18th birthday on a train to New Orleans, and my 19th birthday in London. Then I was put into the Vegas Company and performed in two shows a night (8pm & midnight), seven nights a week, until my contract of 19 months was up. I returned to my family and dog in the fall of 1966. In 1976 a friend was directing a school production of Hello Dolly! and asked me to create the set and light design. I’d always been interested in design and as a hobby made scale models of shows. So I designed and helped choreograph the production and had a ball with the kids who were discovering the show at the exact age I had been in 1965! Since then I have directed and choreographed the show in schools, summer stock and community theaters. Although each production is unique, it still makes me laugh and cry and cheer all in the same places. Here we go again! “It’s so nice to be right here where I belong.” u GATEWAY PLAYHOUSE 23
