Join HSRT for A Night of Cowboy Madness

 Hope Summer Repertory Theatre continues its 36th season with the Till Midnight Cabaret: A Night of Cowboy Madness, opening July 6th at 8:30 pm at the Till Midnight restaurant located in the Baker Lofts development.

Conceived and directed by Fred Tessler, the show combines all types of country music ranging from country western featured in Broadway shows such as "The Robber Bridegroom" and "Shenandoah," to pop country hits by Johnny Cash, John Denver, and Willie Nelson. The cabaret also features music made famous by artists such as Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, and some favorites from the Grand Ole Opry by Minnie Pearl and Loretta Lynn.

With a fun and rollicking cast of six playing would-be cowboys, this comedic cabaret features Tyler Adcock and Kelly Sina, both returning for their second season with HSRT, Joshua Brandenberg, back for his third summer, who can also be seen as Jesus in Godspell, and newcomers Dane Clark, Dominique Simmons, and Danielle Roth.

Fred Tessler once again teams up with choreographer Meribeth Kisner for their sixth show together. The high energy cabaret will definitely keep any audience entertained with sassy square dancin', two steppin', and a little cowboy cloggin'.

If you like country western music and desire a fun and edgy evening in Holland where you can purchase cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, this is the show for you! The show will be performed at 8:30 p.m. on July 6, 7, 10, 12, 18, 26, 31 and August 2.
