Anyone interested in performing (singing, stand up comedy, skits, story telling) in a congenial and supportive setting? We are starting "The Cabaret at Gyspy Stage" and plan to have it on the last Thursday of each month.

PLEASE let us know if you are VERY interested, MILDLY interested or NOT interested. We would appreciate your feedback.

We will provide some sound equipment and you can bring an instrument to play or a sound track to plug into our sound system. There will be at least two microphones. We do NOT have a karaoke player - you may need to bring your own laptop. Beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks, etc. will be available for a donation. We are asking a $5 donation at the door. It will be "cabaret style" - tables and chairs set up like a lounge. The format is open to music: singers who accompany themselves (guitars, keyboards, etc), singers who bring music on their smart phone/ipod/tablet/CD, etc. Folks who want to recite or read poetry or short stories that they have written. Stand up comedians; folks who want to do a "skit". The organizer and hostess of these events will be Tamara Spiri who has an impressive background in Cabaret singing and has opened for some of the best loved comedians of all times. She and Ron Regan may do something from and old TV show as well as sing. Our improv troupe, The Impro-ables will work out some Sketch comedy as well. We will have a sign in book and guests will perform in the order they signed in. The cabaret night will be a fund raiser for both Gypsystage Repertory Company and The Showcase Arts Foundation, Inc. Start time is 7pm - Come early to sing up.
