QuaranTUNES: A Virtual Cabaret by VCUarts Theatre
Friday, April 24th! Starts 7:25pm
Nine VCU students will present their own 10-15 minute CABARET from their own homes!
The class will be hosting a fundraiser for the Actor’s Fund throughout the night, you’ll be able to donate online through Facebook!
This is the final project of a Cabaret Storytelling class that explores storytelling and personal journey through song, taught by Kikau Alvaro, Head of Musical Theatre at VCU and Anthony Smith, the Music Supervisor at Virginia Repertory Theatre. Typically this would be done in person, but our VCUarts Theatre students have taken on these challenging circumstances with determination and grace. We need to connect now more than ever—theatre endures!
