MARTIN COUNTY - Curtain Call Productions kicks off its inaugural season with "Something's Coming: A Musical Tribute to Harold Prince" Sept. 28 - Oct. 7 at the Kane Center in Stuart.
This show celebrates the acclaimed director and producer Harold Prince, with songs from Evita, West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret, Phantom of the Opera and many more.
"It's great to start our season with a show that has songs the audience can hum along to," said Jake Sanders, founder.
"Whether it be 'Tonight' or 'Maria' from West Side Story, 'Don't Cry For Me, Argentina' from Evita, or 'If I Were a Rich Man' from Fiddler, there's something for everyone."
Curtain Call Productions is a new professional theatre company that will perform its entire first season at the Kane Center. Its first cast includes professionals who have performed at venues across Florida, as well as in professional shows in Georgia, New York, New Jersey and the west coast.
Several cast members have trained at renowned programs including Shenandoah Conservatory of Music, the Frost School of Music at U.M., and FSU. Others have been on stage since their childhood and built their careers through hundreds of performances.
"We're excited to have so many seasoned performers in our cast," said Mr. Sanders.
"And especially to welcome Karin Leone back to a Treasure Coast stage. She was a celebrated performer for years in this area, before moving north to continue her professional career."
Other performers well-known to Treasure Coast audiences include Patty Carreau, Dana Rogers, Brian Pecci and Xander James. The troupe is also welcoming newcomer to the area, Anthony Nuccio, a recent graduate of the Frost School whose booming voice is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
"I was impressed with the talent at auditions, and I'm very confident in this cast," said Ben Earman, director.
"At the same time, being first up to bat for Curtain Call brings a lot of pressure because we want to hit a home run with this first show. So we are rehearsing this cast very hard to ensure that audiences will love it. We're challenging our cast to deliver the best performances of their lives," adds Sanders, "As a professional organization, we can attract excellence and ensure each cast member is as good as the next. It's really is an all-star cast."
Tickets are $25, with a discounted rate of $20 for students, Kane Center members, and School Board Employees.
