Carmel Community Players will ask their audiences to “Be Our Guest,” “When You Wish Upon a Star,” as we “Journey to the Past,” to be “Part of Your World,” when it presents “Enchanted Cabaret,” featuring area talent performing music made famous in fairy tale musicals from Broadway to Hollywood.
The show will begin at 8 p.m. both Nov. 9 and Nov. 10, and 2:30 p.m. on Nov.11 at the Carmel Community Playhouse, 14299 Clay Terrace Blvd, Suite 140.
“This cabaret will feature songs and scenes from stories that form some of our favorite childhood memories,” Vince Acceturo, master of ceremonies, explained. “Our audiences will be introduced to princes, princesses, heroes, villains, and even a few sidekicks who took these stories from the page to the stage.”
As a special treat, according to Cales, the cast of “Seussical the Musical,” which runs November 16 thru December 9 at Footlite Musicals, will perform highlights from that show.
“Not to sound like a circus ring master, which I guess I kind of am as MC, but this is going to be a wonderful cabaret suitable for children of all ages,” Acceturo concluded.
“We’re hoping to follow up the incredible success of our ‘Glee Cabaret’ that ran for three nearly sold-out performances in August,” Jeremy Cales, cabaret task force chair, said. “This show will feature 22 extremely talented performers, 10 of whom are new to the CCP stage.”
Tickets for all performances are $10 and can be purchased at the door, subject to availability, in advance online at www.carmelplayers.org or by calling the Carmel Community Playhouse box office at 815-9387.
