Mr. Wenzel has been secured as music director for University of Notre Dame's Department of Film, Television, and Theatre production of Little Shop of Horrors. He is thrilled to be involved in this production. Although Mr. Wenzel's work today is largely focused on classical music and music in the Church, his roots are in musical theatre. He served as assistant to Eugene Gwozdz at Casa Mañana in Fort Worth, Texas, most notably in their production of The King and I featuring Lou Diamond Phillips in his Tony-nominated role as the King of Siam. Additionally, Mr. Wenzel has studied orchestration and arranging under Tony-nominated Larry Blank.
