In the quest to continue creating new virtual entertainment programming, on Sunday, May 24, at 7 PM, the Provincetown Theater will debut its online production of “Our Townie Variety Show,” via the theater’s streaming feature on provincetowntheater.org.
Featuring over a dozen diverse Outer Cape entertainers, “Our Townie Variety Show,” will be hosted by Provincetown Theater Artistic Director David Drake. Headliners include Miss Richfield 1981, pianist John Thomas, rock singer Anne Stott, flutist Eric Maul, modern dancer Vinny Marra, accordion player Terri Conti, singer and ukulele performer Benwa Kramer, classical musicians Chan Varon-Collins and Justin Torrellas, town crier Kenneth Lonergan, plus a virtual reunion of the cast of last summer’s “Sweeney Todd”—with songs performed by Trish La Rose, Madison Mayer, Christopher Sidoli, Megan Amorese, and “The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” himself, Broadway’s Tony-nominated star Tom Hewitt.
Adding celebratory cameos during the show will be Billy Hough and Sue Goldberg of “Scream Along with Billy” fame, Nora Burns of the Unitard comedy troupe, multi-instrumentalist Zoe Lewis, “Tupperware Party” hostess Dixie Longate, burlesque star Chris Harder, and many others.
While streaming free of charge, a donation link will be available throughout the show with proceeds going to the Provincetown Theater, the town’s only year-round, not-for-profit theater company
With many musical segments pre-recorded, the 75-minute show will go “live” at 7 PM Sunday, May 24, on the Provincetown Theater’s virtual programming page.
