Holiday Cabaret at the Morton

Tuesday, December 18, 2018

Holiday event presented by Morton Theatre Corporation

The Morton Theatre Corporation joins forces with Monroe’s On Stage Walton  to present a Holiday Cabaret show. Fourteen acts will celebrate the diversity of the Athens and Monroe arts communities on the historic Morton Theatre Stage, with music, dance, improvisation, poetry and stand-up comedy. 

Athens actress and vocalist Amy Miller will serve as both master of ceremonies and performer. Other musical acts will include vocalist Calvin Orlando Smith; a jazz band directed by Ben Robinson with singer Cass Robinson; mother-daughter singing act Kerri and Kaylee Brooks from Monroe; former Athens country singer Caroline Monroe Boyd; and the ¡MOYUBA! drummers. Erin Sheehan from Monroe will dance. 

Comedy will be provided by the wildly unpredictable On Stage IMPROV group, which calls itself “Walton County’s best (and only) improvisation group;” plus stand-up comedians: Paul Guillebeau and Doug Monroe. Storyteller Murray Weed will present a Christmas poem. And the show closes on a warm, high, holiday note with Athens' own, Calvin Orlando Smith.
