It’s lights, music and song at the Stephen Joseph Theatre which is gearing up for a show-stopping night of cabaret with West End performers.
The Almost Secret Fairly Late Night Cabaret brings together the musical stars of the theatre’s current productions, The Boy Who Fell Into A Book and Cox & Box – Mrs Bouncer’s Legacy, in a one-night-only fundraiser on August 21.
Proceeds from the evening will go towards the theatre’s Seventh Wave fund to support new writers and talent development.
SJT fundraising and development consultant Ann-Marie Merrick said: “With a stellar West End star cast at the SJT right now it would be a crying shame to let them get away without giving us a summer season send-off cabaret.
“The combined cast, crew and musicians of our summer productions will be getting together to delight us with musical entertainment.
“The SJT is rapidly approaching its 60th anniversary next year and this evening will support our Seventh Wave Fund, protecting our legacy and taking us into our seventh decade of innovation.
“You can be at our one-night-only special cabaret and contribute to our future at the same time.
“It’s not in the brochure but word will get out quickly so act fast if you want to be there.”
Actor John Barr, who is currently playing Gran Wolf in The Boy Who Fell Into A Book, is an accomplished cabaret performer having appeared all over the world with his one-man show.
He will compère and perform on the night.
He said: “I’m looking forward to performing here in Scarborough with some wonderful friends from the cast. We’ll be singing a mixture of show tunes and standards.”
