Cotuit Center for the Arts presents “Dark Night Cabaret: Holiday Edition” December 8-16. Performances are Sunday and Monday nights at 7:30 PM.
“In theater, ‘dark night’ is a night on which there are no performances and the theater is closed,” said “Dark Night Cabaret” director Holly Erin McCarthy. “These are often the only nights off for performers.
“But not all performers want to stay home and rest on their nights off. I have put together a cast of incredibly busy—and incredibly talented and dynamic--working performers who have decided to spend their nights off—their Dark Nights—entertaining an intimate audience at Cotuit Center for the Arts.”
The cast features a rotating group of performers, three per night, including Hannah Carrita, Emma Fitzpatrick, Jared Hagan, Trish La Rose, Meghan Magrath, and Anthony Teixeira.
“The evening will be casual and fun and a rare chance to spend time with these singers as themselves, no frills, no characters, no script...no holding back,” said McCarthy. “They will be candid and carefree as they chat with each other and the audience, tell stories and sing about 80 minutes of beautiful music. Do plan to attend more than once to see a different combination of dark night performers.”
There will be snacks and a cash bar, and patrons will have the chance to mingle and chat with the performers themselves, during and after the show.
