Jazz Cabaret

The cabaret will both celebrate the Greater Reading/Berks artistic community and serve as the theater company’s annual fundraiser.  The night will showcase local musicians, performers, visual artists, and businesses.

The Master of Ceremonies will be the masterly magician Matty Whipple, and the performance lineup includes: Chris Heslop’s Roaring 20s Dance Orchestra featuring Chris Heslop, Paul Gallello, Ken Gehret, Trey LaRue, Kelly Powers, Bob Stoyko, Josh Taylor, and vocalist Maria Damore.  Also appearing onstage: drag entertainer Amie Vanité and dancing champion Rachel Skye. Attendees to the Cabaret are encouraged to wear their 1920s best!

Throughout the cabaret, audience members can enter a raffle to win one of several gift certificates to the tastiest restaurants in the area. There is a silent auction with prizes from many West Reading shops and restaurants, and including 2020 Berks Jazz Fest VIP passes, art by muralist Andrew Pochan, jewelry, and much more. There will be a cash bar during the event.
