Out & About: Cabaret reception follows St. Vincent Players' "Carousel"
There's nothing the St. Vincent community likes better than a good after-theater cabaret.
Taking a cue from the famous summer theater events, the St. Vincent College Players offered a late-night soiree after their Feb. 13 performance of “Carousel” in the Carey Student Center on the Unity campus.
It was late when theater-goers found their way to the lobby, but there was no rush to go out into the cold night, what with the cookies, cupcakes and punch on offer in the lobby.
Having a bite and a sip were Kevin Daniel O'Leary, Tony Marino, FatherBrian Boosel, Michael and Maryrose Orange, Charisse Peters, Josh McIntyre, Sarah Meade, Jim and Amy Meade, Adrienne Burke, Molly Brennan, Paul Burke, Amanda Slowey and Brandon Snyder.
Positive reviews were heard for the all-student production of the classic Broadway musical, starring homegrown talents Mickey Orange, a senior biology major from Latrobe, as carnival barker Billy Bigelow, and Abigail Sugrue, a senior music performance major from Export, as Julie Jordan, the object of Billy's somewhat dubious affections.
Director was Greggory Brandt, who also directs the summer theater. Choreography was courtesy of Stage Right's Renata Marino. Valerie Stipcak was music director and Christopher Plummer was technical director and stage designer.
