Bayside! The Musical!, the "Saved by the Bell" musical parody, plays New York City's Theatre 80. Members of the cast and creative team pick their favorite television show theme songs as part of this week's Playbill Playlist.

Running since September of 2013, Bayside! The Musical! has now increased its weekly schedule from three to five shows, all of which will feature Dustin Diamond, the original Screech from the TV series "Saved by the Bell."

The current cast also features Sam Harvey as Zack Morris, Katie Mebane, John Duff, April Kidwell, Justin Cimino, Shamira Clark, Amanda Nicholas and former New York City mayoral candidate Seth Blum as Mr. Belding.

Bayside! The Musical! features book, music and lyrics by Bob and Tobly McSmith and is also co-directed by the pair. Jason Wise choreographs, and Susan O'Dea serves as music director.

Bayside!, according to press notes, "tackles all the tough questions: Will Zack and Kelly break up? Will Slater quit wrestling forever? Screech die? This show has it all: brick-sized cell phones, homoerotic wrestling, abject feminism, sexy ducks covered in oil, Trapper Keepers, and the perils of caffeine addiction."
