A Brit of Everything
Helen Welch will light up the stage with her vibrant voice in “A Brit of Everything” at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, May 19 and 20. She will perform at the Cirigliano Studio Theatre as part of the Studio Theatre Cabarets. Take the swing of Ella, the warm alto tones of Karen Carpenter, add some soul and cheeky British humor and get entertainer, singer and song-stylist Welch. The long awaited follow up to her first two hugely popular recordings “One Dream” and “Forever for Now” will be featured at this special cabaret along with songs especially chosen by Welch and her amazing trio of musicians. Along with Joe Leaman on keyboard, Bryan Thomas on bass and Anthony Taddeo on drums, Welch will treat guests to a live performance featuring all the songs from her new CD “Spellbound,” along with some old favorites from their successful string of cabaret shows including “Both Sides Now,” “Windmills of Your Mind,” “I Put a Spell on You” and a flamenco inspired “Spain” by Chick Corea, as well as original songs composed by Welch. She is excited to share this new eclectic collection of songs with the public.

The Phat Pack: Broadway at its Best
Enjoy great singing at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24 in the Hoke Theatre with The Phat Pack. Bruce Ewing (Jinx in “Forever Plaid” on the National Tour and in Las Vegas), Ted Keegan (The Phantom in “Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway and on Tour) and Randal Keith (Valjean in “Les Miserables” on Broadway and on Tour) all met at “Phantom: The Las Vegas Spectacular” and became “The Phat Pack.” This show is jam-packed with great music — Broadway, American standards, Las Vegas favorites and some hilarious new original songs, along with music from their signature roles. Besides receiving rave reviews after opening in Las Vegas in the fall of 2012, “The Phat Pack” was named “Best of Vegas 2013” Best All-Around Performers by the Las Vegas Review Journal.
