HAPPY NEW YEAR from ACE!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2010 was quite a year at Actors Cabaret! Here are just a few highlights of this amazing season:
A lot of eyebrows were raised when ACE decided to tackle this Broadway Mega-Show, but on opening night there was no doubt that ACE Artistic Director Joe Zingo and Producer Jim Roberts had taken a Broadway classic and made it into an intimate, visually stunning, emotion filled hit! Many of our patrons who had seen CATS on much larger stages agreed that CATS at ACE brought a fresh new take to this challenging masterpiece, proving once again that if it's big enough for Broadway, it's just right for Actors Cabaret!
We were the first theater in town to bring in this brand new show and it proved to be a great success, thanks to an excellent ensemble cast who brought humor and heartbreak to this story of young people caught up the intense world of competitive spelling!
An original work by local legend Chuck Nathan provided ACE audiences with an opportunity to take a step back in time when songs were filled with melody and every show had a happy ending!
Moody, moving and filled with unforgettable performances by ACE vets Kevin Bolling, Don Kelley and Michelle Sellers.
The first time we brought in Opera to Actors Cabaret! The Cascadia Concert Opera performance sold out and had audiences asking for more! Watch for a return of Eugene's latest opera company to Actors Cabaret next fall...
The best musical review ever created, cast with the most talented performers in Eugene! We had to provide slippers for all the audience members who got their socks knocked off by the powerhouse performances of the Actors Cabaret cast.
If you were lucky enough to get tickets to HAIRSPRAY then you know what a fantastic show it was! We sold 95% of the show before opening night and had to add extra performances! It looks like our secret is out...Actors Cabaret is the place to go whenever you're looking for a night of solid entertainment! Our New Years Eve gala performance had 8 curtain calls! A new ACE record! We also had a visit from a real Austrian prince; Mario-Max, Prince Shaumberg-Lippe III of Austria! He enjoyed himself so much, he agreed to star in our new production of PRETTY FACES in May! Mario is the winner of the Austrian version of Dancing with the Stars and will take PRETTY FACES to Europe after his turn on the Actors Cabaret stage! Stay tuned for more royal news in the future!
2011 - What's Next?
So how on earth are we going to top 2010? With the same amount of hard work, pluck, and energy we brought to 2010, that's how! We can't wait!
ON SALE NOW:
THE DROWSY CHAPERONE
February 18 through March 25 - Get your tickets early for this brilliant new musical!
This is simply without a doubt, the funniest, most creative show to come from Broadway in years! Starring ACE vet Gaylord Walker as "The Man in the Chair," in a part of epic proportions, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE is a love letter to the theater, and the only show ever to feature a fully staged Broadway Musical in one man's studio apartment! Amazing! THE DROWSY CHAPERONE features a cast of your favorite ACE Actors including HAIRSPRAY alums Mark VanBeever and Bruce McCarthy as gangsters disguised as a pastry chefs (really!), Trevor Eichhorn as the dashing Percy Hyman, Sophie Mitchell as the actress who's giving up the stage for love, and the long awaited, very much welcomed return of Bill Furtick as Underling! THE DROWSY CHAPERONE is an utterly unexpected, delightfully charming, brilliantly conceived musical that will leave you in stitches as "The Man in the Chair" leads you through the best 1928 musical that never existed! Get ready for THE DROWSY CHAPERONE!
Is THE DROWSY CHAPERONE OK for kids?
We recommend this show for children 7 years or older. THE DROWSY CHAPERONE takes place in the 1920's and concerns the preparations for a wedding. The music is fun and accessible, the plot is simple and the characters are comedic. There is no profanity and one or two oblique sexual references. The show is filled with high energy, goofy situations and is very, very funny. THE DROWSY CHAPERONE is performed without an intermission and runs approximately 80-90 minutes.
We've scheduled 15 fabulous performances of THE DROWSY CHAPERONE including 3 Brunch Matinees! The phone is already starting to ring for this show, so don't delay, get your tickets today!
