One of the first events  The Central New York Playhouse produced in 2012 was a cabaret featuring an up and coming CNY singer.  This cabaret proved so popular that in 2013 we turned it into a series hosting almost a dozen singers telling their unique stories through song.  In 2014 we will be 8 scheduled cabarets at CNYP featuring over a dozen singers.  They start in March and run throughout the year.  
First up Phil Markert will headline one of his famous sing-a-long nights featuring Bob and Cathy Brown in a joint fundraiser for CNYP and Salt City Center for Performing Arts.  Thursday March 6 at 7pm All seats $15.
Then later in march Allie Villa and Anthony Wright pair up for their cabaret "Lessons in Love".  They will share the story of their friendship and love.  Taking place Saturday March 28, 2014 8pm All Seats $10.  
More cabarets are planned and listed below.  All cabarets will take place on our cabaret stage in our theater in Shoppingtown Mall.  
We are also open to other promotional opportunities such as ticket giveaways, radio and/or tv appearances, and interviews with cast or crew.  Contact Dustin M. Czarny at 315-383-4318 to make arrangements for any night or with any questions about the production.
