CAST, CREATIVE, PRODUCTION CREDITS

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!!!

WHAT AUDIENCES HAD TO SAY

"'Songs from a Hat' was conceived as a fun one-time benefit show, but it turned out to be a hysterically funny show that should have a run of it's own! Christopher Michaels and Michael Perrie Jr. are a contemporary musical vaudeville team the likes we don't see anymore. Look out for the next time they do the show!"   --Peter Saxe

 

"The entire thing was beautifully crafted and extremely fun, witty, and hilarious!"  --Jianzi Colón-Soto

"A hilarious evening that I would be sad to see lives as one-night-only."  --Gil Varod

"These guys are brilliant!"  --Micah Macias

"Such incredible work! Glad I got to see this show!  --Keeley McCormick

"There was no moment where I thought... 'This is where I could go pee.'"  --Matthew Roland

"Their chemistry on stage is incredible!"  --Carly Otte
