GIGS FALL 2013!!! FOR peeps in the Stratford, Oakville and Toronto!! GLOBAL CABARET ! FULL DARK!! RIVER RUN!!
I have some awesome bits and pieces coming up in the next few weeks into November!
I usually would publicize one at a time but there are so many I gotta do it all at once.
And, honestly, I am super excited about ALL OF THEM!!
SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT GLOBAL CABARET FESTIVAL OCTOBER 26th @ 7:00pm OCTOBER 27th 2 4:30pm
One of my VERY FAVOURITE things to do EVERY YEAR!!
It is an amazing festival and I am always so bowled over by all the artists and all of the cabaret creations!
THIS year my show is called and themed:
Something Completely Different
For the first time in a very long whileI am singing every song in my show all the way through. Yup...whole songs...who woulda thunk it? AND I am focusing mostly on songs of love and loss...and a couple sexy things... :)
I NEVER get to sing a love song!
I also am very excited about my very simple but lovely accompaniment of guitar (Jason Chesworth) and percussion (Jamie Drake).
I wanted to try something different (re:title) at this very creative and inspirational festival.
I am covering artists such as Billy Joel, Gavin DeGraw, Duffy, Bruno Mars and Jessie J...many new songs...and a few that I have never done with this configuration of instruments.
I am super excited to be doing the premiere production of my newest show at Sheridan College. Incidentally, Sheridan was the place where I went to school for musical theatre back in the 1942. Truly...it seems that long ago.
Sheridan is doing some really exciting new works with students, composers, lyricists, librettists...and now CABARET!! How exciting! I am looking forward to working with the students while I rehearseand workshop further my newest and most daring cabaret to date:
Full Dark was fostered at Buddies In Bad Times as a part of my artistic residence ...with support from the BMO Financial, the OAC, private supporters Joan Mathers and John McKellar AND Sheridan College.
It is a daunting and exciting new piece for me! And I get to do a run of it! Imagine!
I will be accompanied by Chris Tsujiuchi on keys and as band leader, Mike Doherty on percussion and Jason Chesworth on Guitar and other stringed instruments.
Award winning Lighting Designer, Bonnie Beecher will be doing the lights. MAGIC!
PLEASE come on out!
The link is up but the box office is not yet open!
