The Oklahoma Christian University Music Department has something to make you shout “hooray” because the 24th annual Valentine Cabaret dinner theater will be presented Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 14-16, 2013! The festivities will start at 6:00 p.m. each evening with a catered candlelight dinner in the McIntosh Conservatory which is located inside the Garvey Center on the OC campus. The dinner menu consists of a tossed green salad, followed by delicious Chicken Cordon Blue paired with a rice pilaf and grilled vegetable me´lange. The dessert will be a choice of Triple Chocolate Cake or Strawberry topped Cheesecake. The Cabaret performance will be held in the adjacent Adams Recital Hall at 7:00 p.m.
The theme of this year’s Cabaret is “Hooray For Love: Highlights From The Great American Songbook,” and will feature fourteen songs by George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, Duke Ellington, Harold Arlen, and Burt Bacharach. The songs will include such classics as “The Man I Love,” “I Got It Bad (And That Ain’t Good),” and “If I Only Had A Brain.”
The Cabaret cast consists of sixteen talented OC students: Kirby Allen, Kalee Floyd, Hannah Faye Foster, Ryan Gonzales, Alyssa Jackson, Jabbarri Jones, Reece Kingcade, Stephanie Loyd, Rebecca Moran, Sarah Risley, Sean Steele, Lane Wheeler, Lauren Wheeler, Brian Wilcox, Moriah Willing, and Tommy Winberry. The show’s director is OC alumnus Chad Anderson, who has directed nearly a dozen OC Homecoming musicals and Valentine Cabarets. OC staff accompanist, Eric Grigg, will serve as music director and will play the piano for the performances, and he will be joined by OKC Philharmonic member Larry Moore on bass.
Tickets cost $20 for the dinner and show, or $7 for the show alone. Call the OC Music Department at 425-5530, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday to purchase your tickets.
