Screech! Dustin Diamond Is Doing the Saved By the Bell Musical

ScreechAs Mr. Belding might’ve said, what is going on here?

First Bayside! The Musical! — the raunchy Saved by the Bell parody playing at Theatre 80 on St. Marks Place — got a cameo from the actor who played Belding, and now they’ve one-upped themselves by roping in Dustin Diamond, who, of course, played Screech. Yes, the Screech who finished fifth in an ALF lookalike contest.

If You’re a Saved By the Bell Fan, Get Ready to Sing ‘I’m So Excited’

BELDINGNot only is it a great time to be a William S. Burroughs fan, but if you’re a Saved By the Bell fan, you’re living in the midst of a veritable Zack-and-Kelly renaissance.

Remember Dennis Haskins, the actor who played Mr. Belding? Well, on Feb. 7 and 8, he’s making a guest appearance in Bayside! The Musical!,  the outrageously raunchy parody of SBTB that’s been playing at Theatre 80 on St. Marks Place. The Bayside principal’s catch phrase — “What is going on here?” — is a big part of the musical and (spoiler alert) eventually leads to a 4 Non Blondes cover that’s one of its more hilarious numbers. So, yeah, this should be pretty epic.
