Meeting the joy, honor and celebration that Memorial Day Weekend has traditionally meant for so many Americans ain’t an easy task in these anxious and isolated times. But we at the Provincetown Theater are determined to pioneer our way forward, grabbing hold of all those emotions associated with the gateway to summer, and putting them in a show!
That’s right, on Sunday, May 24 at 7pm we’re free-streaming our season kick-off with Our Townie Variety Show. Featuring a wide range of major Outer Cape talent, join host David Drake along with a roster of talent that includes not only sensational singers, but also classical musicians & tap dancers, pianist John Thomas, accordionist Terri Conti, flutist Eric Maul, rock-n-roller Anne Stott, ukulele dude Benwa Kramer & more!
PLUS tune in for a reunion of the stars of last summer’s Sweeney Todd – with songs from the glorious voices of Trish LaRose (above, right), Megan Amorese, Christopher Sidoli, Madison Mayer (above, left), and that Demon Barber of Fleet Street himself, Broadway’s Tom Hewitt (above, center).
While we’ll be streaming Our Townie Variety Show free-of-charge, please know that this very special production is being produced as a benefit show to help us shore up the kind of support our theater will need to survive the next phases of the pandemic. Our goal, of course, is to get through this time of darkness, see the light at the end of the tunnel, and put that light back where it belongs – downstage center at the Provincetown Theater.
So, set your calendar for Sun, May 24 at 7pm to join in with your friends and loved ones for Our Townie Variety Show!
