My husband has decided this is cheating...ETA *edited again!*

I'm playing a lead in a community theater production (Sophie in 'Mamma Mia'). Things have been going really well, and I've been having a lot of fun.
On Sunday we had a dress rehearsal, and our families were invited to watch. After the show my husband seemed out of sorts, so I asked him what was wrong. Turns out he's all pissy because I have to kiss a guy a couple times as part of the show. Really? He says he didn't know I would be kissing anyone, or he wouldn't have been ok with me being in the show in the first place. He also says he doesn't want our friends and family to come, cuz he's embarrassed for them to watch me 'cheat' on him.
I think he's blowing this way way way way out of proportion. What do you ladies think?
ETA: I didn't bother to bring it up to him because I assumed he would realize it himself, having seen the live show and the movie before.
Edit #2: okay, so we talked. He said that he sees now that he overreacted, and I said I understand why he felt the way he did, and I would make sure to discuss these things with him next time. He understands now that it means nothing. Part of the reason I was so upset was it seemed like he couldn't trust me to be faithful over one stupid kiss, but now we both know how the other feels. Thank you everyone for (mostly) being supportive and letting me vent!
To call it cheating is overreacting, but I can see how it would make him uncomfortable so it's something that should have been discussed beforehand. I know it's just acting, but still, I would be uncomfortable watching dh do that with another woman.
