The Fantasy Cabaret - 2003

Millenium Theater will be hosting the 3rd "not quite annual" Fantasy Cabaret. Funds raised will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin.

Millenium Theater's production is composed of talented vocalists who will be performing selections outside their usual repertoire, adding humor and excitement along the way. The cast comes from near and far, featuring returning artists from Chicago, Wauwatosa and Seattle. Among the performers are Kitt Reuter Foss, Erika Foss, Jace Nichols, Wendy Jones, Cathy Kaufmann, Sharon Brolin, Scott Stanley, Michael Brunner and host Joe Thompson. Singing works from The Wizard of Oz, The Sound of Music, Chicago, Barnum and The Full Monty. And featuring the Fantasy Combo: Sue Mielke (piano, music direction), Tom Mielke (bass), Sean Tesar (drums)

The first two Fantasy Cabarets raised over $3,700 and helped one child purchase a computer. The funds helped another family take a dream trip to Disney World. And audience members love the performances. It's a "treasure chest full of musical jewels from this incredible collection of local talent" (quote from the Wisconsin Diary, Phil Haslanger)

Presented by Millenium Theater at the First United Methodist Church, 203 Wisconsin Ave., Madison.

Performances: Friday, January 17th and Saturday, January 18th, 2003, at 7:30 pm.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the door. For ticket reservations, call (608) 280-8711.
