Chapel Theatre is partnering with the Milwaukie ArtMOB to bring the spirit of Milwaukie 1st Fridays indoors during the winter. From January through March, Chapel Theatre will offer 2nd Sundays Winter Performance Series. These performances will include a variety of performance styles in an effort to engage the Milwaukie audiences with various art forms in a warm and community-centered environment. The events will range from at-risk youth showcasing their art and breakdancing to musical theatre to local choreographers pairing their dance pieces with wine. Each event will be unique and engage audiences in very different ways.
January 13: The Ingenue’s Revenge
This event is a reprise of a musical theatre cabaret event that took place at Chapel Theatre this summer. Three of Portland’s top musical theatre performers strip away the lace and tiaras to reveal a much more complex picture of maidenhood. Jam packed with classic and contemporary showtunes, this fun and thought-provoking concert features Sarah DeGrave, Cassi Q. Kohl, and Caitlin Brooke, with accompaniment by Mont Chris Hubbard.
February 10: Graffiti Art & Breakdancing
Youth with the Morpheus Youth Project and Mayfair Art will be showcasing their graffiti art and breakdancing. This event will include battle-style breakdancing performances accompanied by a DJ and live painting.
March 10: Wine & Dance Pairing Performance
The last event involve dance pieces that will be paired with wine for audiences to engage in the arts with multiple senses. Each choreographer will describe their artistic process and their artistic choices for their piece. Our Sommelier will then describe the wine he chose to pair with each piece, why it relates to the artistic expression of the dancers, and how the audience might experience the taste in relation to the art.
Tickets coming soon.
