What good is sitting alone in your room? Life is a cabaret, and so is death in this entertaining song- and dance-filled night of merriment where audience members become stars, and danger lurks around every table. The Cabaret's producer, Agrava Krispie, famous author of such mystery novels as Ten Little Indecisions and Death on Denial, presents her first Cabaret. Her all-star cast includes Lucky Charms as the Master of Ceremonies, Agrava's niece and nephew Coco Krispie and Rhyce Krispie, her ex-sister-in-law Sugar Smax and last but not least (and he will certainly tell you!) former child star Razen Brand. They combine their talents to make for an evening of sweet entertainment. But someone is trying to murder the Queen of Murder
Mysteries! Audiences help track down the 'cereal' killer in time to remind us that there is truly 'no business like show business'.
Tickets, which include dinner and the show, cost $35.00.

The question: "What was Kaleidoscope Theatre's first fairytale musical?"
The Answer: Little Red Ridinghood
Thursday, March 29, 2007
We here at Kaleidoscope could not be happier for Tommy, and feel that this is too wonderful an opportunity for him to pass up. Furthermore, Tommy will be gaining experience and expertise working on Royal Caribbean’s world-class production shows that he can bring back to Kaleidoscope upon his return in the fall. As this would take him away from Kaleidoscope for the summer however, it means that we will need an Acting Artistic Director for the interim while Tommy is gone. Fortunately for us, we have a very talented individual, Frank Galligan, who has worked for us since he was young enough to play a mouse in Cinderella! He will soon be graduating from Assumption College, and has built himself quite an impressive resume over the years. Frank will assume the role of Kaleidoscope’s Acting Artistic Director for the summer of 2007.
We wish Tommy the best of luck on the ship, and look forward to updates from him while he is away!

If you are looking for a creative and fun event to plan for your child's birthday party, then Kaleidoscope Theatre just might be the entertainment you've been looking for!
What could be more exciting to a child than having Cinderella herself stop by to say "Happy Birthday!" and play games with your guests? Or how about having a tea party with Alice and the Mad Hatter? Maybe the handsome knight Prince Stefan can teach your guests about the bravery and chivalry of the code of knighthood!
We have a variety of packages detailed on our website. Take a look, and let Kaleidoscope Theatre help create a birthday party that they'll never forget!

Fallon Healy, who has appeared in the Kaleidoscope productions of Cinderella (Putricia), Jack & the Beanstalk (Jack's Mom), Mother Goose (Queen of Hearts, pictured left), will be singing the role of "Putricia" on the recording. She took a few moments of her time to write about the experience for the reading enjoyment of all our readers in the blogosphere! Here's what she had to say:
Hey guys!! My name is Fallon Healy, I'm 23 years old and a 2005 musical theatre graduate from Rhode Island College. I have been working on and off with Kaleidoscope Theatre since the winter of 2004. My first show with Kaleidoscope was Cinderella's Christmas where I played the role of Putricia. I don't often get to do as many shows with the company as I would like because I currently live really far away and I have a pretty busy full time job. So that's why when Tommy called and asked me to do the recording of Cinderella's Christmas, I was very excited! At first, I had no idea it would be something that was going to be so widely sold. That was just a major plus of it all!
The whole experience was very different for me, but it was a lot of fun. First, I met with Tommy and we just ran through the music a couple dozen times. The rehearsal process wasn't too bad seeing as I had already been in the show; it had just been a really long time since I had sang and I needed some touch-ups on the harmonies. Then, about a week or so later, we met at the recording studio. I was very excited. I don't know about anybody else who did the recording but this was a first for me! You had to put on these big earphones and stand exactly right on a white taped line on the floor. It was weird because the singer was downstairs and Tommy and everyone else who was listening were upstairs. They communicated to you through the headphones. After the recording, it was very cool to hear everything being played back - my voice sounded so clear and I loved hearing it with the music, as opposed to me hearing everything from onstage.
Another thing that was a little bit different was that in the staged version of Cinderella's Christmas, the stepsisters and sometimes the whole step family sing together, but in the recording studio we all sang separately. As a matter of fact, Debbie (Stepmother) wasn't even there the night Carolyn (Disgustia) and I sang. It was explained to me that we all sang separately so that if someone messed up, one track could be erased or fixed instead of the whole group’s track, which makes sense. If I was asked to do it again, I think I would definitely be a little bit more prepared in terms of all the little nit picky types of things (like cut off times), and for the parts I was self conscious about, I would make sure I had them completely right before I entered the studio.
I am very excited to hear the final product! The whole experience for me was just really awesome. I am so glad I was asked to participate in this project and rejoin the Kaleidoscope family. I hope this helps anyone who has questions about the studio experience!! :)
