I’m thrilled that Dean Reichard invited me to participate in the next iteration of CHAWbaret, the fundraiser for the Capitol Hill Art’s Workshop! We had our first rehearsal this week, and I am awestruck by the talents involved — Katherine McCann, Eileen Warner, Deborah Davidson, Dean Reichard, Dorie Hightower, Ron Squeri, and Matt Howe. All under the terrific music direction of Amy Conley.
Since the show is in October, the theme this year is Magic To Do and it’s great to see the number of interpretations that the artists are providing. And I always love the creative part of the rehearsal process, where so many things are possible! It’s the magic that starts the magic.*
So mark your calendars for our shows, October 16,17,23,& 24 at CHAW. And of course I’ll have more dispatches before then!
*Apologies to those who found themselves with elevated blood sugar after that line.

On February 2, a host of outstanding cabaret performers, all DC Cabaret Network members — Terri Allen, Davey Brown, Chris Cochran, Deborah Davidson, Emily Everson, Michael Miyazaki, Joe Peck, Kathy Reilly, Ron Squeri and Eileen Warner — are teaming up to bring you good music and good fun while benefiting scholarships for disadvantaged DC-area youth through a College Access Fund.
I’m looking forward to this, not just because I’m in it, but from the rehearsal I heard, some of my favorite area performers are going to be delivering knock-out performances — this is a show not to be missed!!!!
From heart-felt to stand-and-belt, this show pulls no punches when it comes to providing the kind of excellent entertainment DC audiences have come to expect.
Curtain is 7:30 pm at the River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation located at 6301 River Road, Bethesda, MD.
Ticket prices range from $10 for students to $60 for “family” admittance, and includes a cold supper with a cash bar. A special admission price of $ 20 for DC Cabaret Network members can be had by contacting Kathy Reilly at email@example.com; or for general admission tickets and directions go online to http://www.rruuc.org
