The upstairs room of the First Congregational Church’s Community Center will be transformed into a modern-day cabaret on Saturday, March 23 at 7:30 pm for “Life is a Cabaret,” a variety-filled evening of musical entertainment complete with refreshments.
Headlining the event will be The Occasion Singers, jazz pianist Truman Terrell, singer-songwriter duo guitarists Paul Colarusso and Judy Pavadore, jazz duets by Phil and Karen Sanborn, a piano duet by Bev Peduzzi and Sandy Morgan, the duo of Will Bruno and Suzie Kokkins, the Junior Show Choir under the direction of Jamie Wiksten and Cassandra Morgan, and the comedy act of Mark Tucker. A total of three barbershop groups will perform: the G20 Barbershop Chapter of Fall River, the Portuguese Waterdogs, and Three Buoys and a Gull. In addition, the church’s own The Meetinghouse Bells, under the direction of Margaret Wyman, will add their talents to the program. Matt Paknis will act as host for the event.
The event is sponsored by the First Congregational Church’s Music Committee in support of the annual Christmas Cantata Sunday, a choral event that involves singers and instrumentalists from all over the South Coast region.
Tickets for “Life is a Cabaret,” which are $10 (general seating) and $15 (table seating), are available from The Bookstall and the Marion General Store. The Community Center of the First Congregational Church is located at the back of the General Store parking lot at 144 Front Street in Marion Village.
