Oklahoma Christian University to perform 31st annual 'Cabaret: Broadway Bound' Feb. 13-15
Oklahoma Christian University will present the 31st annual “Cabaret: Broadway Bound” Thursday through Saturday in Judd Theater in the Garvey Center on campus.
Students will be performing Broadway hits during the show, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. For the third year in a row, the OC Jazz Band will join the singers.
OC vocal instructor Terry Attebery will be directing his fifth “Cabaret.” He is in charge of selecting the music, overseeing auditions, scheduling rehearsals and tightening the performances. Before teaching at OC, he directed high school choir for more than 20 years and performed with two theaters: Lyric and Summer Stock.
Directing “Cabaret” is one of his favorite things about working at OC.
“One of the most rewarding parts of ‘Cabaret’ is getting to see the performers grow in confidence on the stage,” Attebery said. “They are learning new performance skills, and it is exciting to watch them blossom as performers.”
This year’s “Cabaret: Broadway Bound” will feature 26 songs, ranging from “Can You Feel The Love Tonight,” “Greased Lightning,” “Footloose,” “A Million Dreams” and many more.
Senior music major Rebecca Whiteman is the stage manager for the show. Heath Jones, OC’s professor of music, will direct the jazz band, and Barbara Berard serves as the choreographer. Mike Turner, music accompanist at OC, will play the piano.
After the local performances, the cast, crew and jazz band will travel to Branson, Missouri, to perform Feb. 20-23.
