Summer cabarets return to the Root Family Stage and every week our hand-picked performers tackle a different theme, artist, or genre of music.

Relax with a glass of wine or a beer brewed right here in Montgomery County and let the music take your troubles away.

  • Friday, July 8

    70's Rock n' Roll 

    70s rockers like Fleetwood Mac, Queen, Pink Floyd, TOTO, Tom Petty, Elton John, the Eagles, and Marvin Gaye were always up for a good time. So are Ines Nassara, Maria Egler, and John Sygar, as they belt out the hits beloved first by the "Me" generation and now adored by all. Bell bottoms, wide lapels, and tube tops are optional.

    In case of rain, this event will be moved to the Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab.

  • Friday, July 15

    Tribute to Carole King

    Rescheduled from May, Nova Y. Payton, the star of Ford’s Theatre’s Grace is joined by Karen Vincent to co70’s rover works from the acclaimed singer/songwriter’s unmatched career of hits including “I Feel The Earth Move,” “You’ve Got A Friend,” “Natural Woman” and more. Nova and Karen will belt out the tunes that have created multiple generations of fans.

    In case of rain, this will event be moved to the Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab.

  • Friday, August 5

    Latin Celebration 

    It’s an evening saluting the songs and artists that have made Latin music an essential part of the American musical canon. Join us for a tribute to Latino/a artists including Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin, Selena and more. Performers include local stars Mauricio Pita, Jonathan Atkinson, Jyline Carranza, Chris Urquiaga, and Elena Lacayo.

    In case of rain, this event will be moved to the Mainstage.

  • Friday, August 12

    Celebration of Billy Joel and Stevie Wonder

    One’s known as “The Piano Man” the other completely redefined R&B, funk, soul and pop through his use of electronic keyboards. Together, it’s hard to name an area of popular music of the last 40 years that is untouched by the influence of either Billy Joel or Stevie Wonder. We’d never say its a competition between the Poet Laureate of Long Island and the original Motown Superstar, but no matter who’s your favorite, everybody wins! Featuring performers Tracy Olivera, Calvin McCullough, Derrick Truby and Christopher Youstra.

    In case of rain, this event will be moved to the Mainstage.

  • Friday, August 19

    Celebration of Sondheim

    There simply hasn’t been a composer for the American theatre in the last 70 years with a greater impact than Stephen Sondheim. Our Cabaret stars Donna Migliaccio and Gregory Maheu lead the way along with Katie Mariko Murray, and John Leslie Wolfe covering numbers West Side Story, Company, Into the Woods, A Little Night Music, and more!

    In case of rain, this event will be moved to the Mainstage.
