SONGS FROM A HAT 2019
FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 2019 - 7PM
Christopher and Michael have agreed to put on a show. Christopher and Michael have agreed to sing songs. The one thing Christopher and Michael COULDN'T agree on, however, were WHAT songs to sing. That's where you come in! Write down any musical theatre song titles, throw them into the hat, and see what gets pulled out. Whatever they pull out, they have to sing! Don’t miss this comic duo in the hilarious "two-man cabaret show experience" that will have you chortling in your chairs and holding onto your hats!!!
