Ozark Actors Theatre is building on the well-received Cabaret performances of the summer of 2013 by introducing a Summer Series of Cabaret, presented by our guest performers. This Cabaret Series will be three original, intimate evenings of incredible song so you can get to know the OAT stars in a completely new way!
The second Cabaret performance will be on Monday, July 14th at 7:30pm, featuring the talents of Blane Pressler and Dave Maglione with the music of Maglione and Ruiz. Act One will be Blane Pressler in "It’ll Never Happen": Sometimes, no matter how badly you want something, it’s just not in the stars, not in the cards and next to impossible… and sometimes, when you’re really lucky, it works out perfectly. This Act, “It’ll Never Happen”, will feature song selections that Blane has never been given the chance to perform: songs from Funny Girl, Ragtime, Oklahoma, Anything Goes, Pippin, Anyone Can Whistle, Sunset Boulevard, Merrily We Roll Along, and Kiss Me Kate. You will recognize Blane as Pharaoh in this season’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and from past OAT seasons in Peter Pan, Fools, Into the Woods, The Wizard of Oz, Noises Off, The Diviners, Lend Me Tenor, and many more.
In Act Two, Dave Maglione presents "The Music of Maglione and Ruiz… Wait, Where?" Join Dave Maglione as he recounts the past year of writing and collaborating with #AndRuiz. Expect performances of these original works from Dave Maglione, Taylor Louderman (of Broadway’s Bring It On: The Musical), Blane Pressler, Brittany Proia (this season’s Adriana in The Comedy of Errors, Cabaret 1 performer and the Drowsy Chaperone herself in The Drowsy Chaperone in August), Jon Andrew (Dromio in The Comedy of Errors, Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Adolpho in The Drowsy Chaperone), Sabra Sellers (season 2013’s Peter Pan, Fools, Into the Woods) and Jake Mills (Annie national tour).
The Cabaret Series will finish with Cabaret Three on Monday, August 4th featuring the talents of Alyssa Flowers and Jake Mills, both currently performing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat July 10th-20th and then in The Drowsy Chaperone July 31st-August 10th.
