Cabaret luncheon June 5 at W.A.C.

A cabaret performer who has graced the New York stage will perform at the Whitehall Athletic Club next week.

Kathy Beaver will perform a luncheon cabaret, “I’m Flying,” at noon on Wednesday, June 5. The performance is a presentation of the Bridge Theater division of the Arts and Recreation Commission of Whitehall.

The performance is the second of a series of luncheon cabarets. The first was performed last December by Laura Roth and others are planned for later this summer.

A Bronx native, Beaver is no stranger to Washington County. Her father, the late Quentin Beaver, was the summer theater producer from the mid-1970s through the 1990s at the Fort Salem Theater in Salem, and she performed parts in many of those productions.

When not acting, Beaver was an accomplished musical director and violinist and played in classical quartets and Broadway pit orchestras throughout the year.

Her desire to act, however, never waned and when she continued taking roles that fit into the schedule.

Six years ago, she played the part of Mama Rose, made famous by Ethel Merman in “Gypsy.” However, one night while playing the role, she suffered an accident and in so doing lost her ability to perform as a violinist.

Employing the adage, “when given a lemon, make lemonade,” Beaver turned to a career in cabaret. She also stages and directs the music for the Inner Circle banquet in New York where the city’s top newspaper reporters do a musical roast of city and state officials.

With “I’m Flying,” Beaver offers songs she’s done in various show throughout her career. The performance also tells the story of a determined singer who continues her cabaret singing while finding new flights of fancy to compensate for her inability to continue as a violinist.

The full buffet lunch, with a quartet of entrees, and show, is $27.50.

To make reservations, call Beth at 832-3662.
