Have Your Say Cabaret
Producer & Curator: Mallory McGrath
Director: Chad Richard
Music Directors: Carol Salamone
Stage Manager: TBD
A fundraising cabaret in support to OLT – but with a fun, new twist! Help us to introduce 10 musicals to the OLT community that have never been done on OLT’s stage (or haven’t been done in the last 20 years). 10 singers, 20 songs (2 songs from each of the 10 musicals). As an audience member, you are transported from musical to musical, given a description of the plot and the characters you will be introduced to, and then at the end of the show, given the power to vote for your favourite of the 10 musicals. The musical with the most votes at the end of 4 performances will be slotted into the 2025
