Theater company hosts cabaret


Last updated 7/11/2023 at 10:32am

“Ladies of Summer,” a dinner cabaret featuring songs about summer, will be performed at Sisters Saloon and Ranch Grill this Saturday, July 15, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open and dinner service will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The cabaret is part of a summer series of events produced by Silent Echo Theater Company (SETC) and hosted by Sisters Saloon. Admission is $20 (covers performance only).

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Sisters Saloon, so we can do what we love and support local businesses at the same time, ” SETC’s Producing Artistic Director Marla Manning said.

The event will take place on the outside patio of the Sisters Saloon and will feature talent from Central Oregon including Sisters residents Manning and Kate Cavanaugh. Performers will be accompanied by Janelle Musson on keyboards and Clay Helt on guitar.

SETC, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has produced live performances including cabarets, one-act festivals, and play readings since 2016. These events have taken place at various local venues. Manning says her dream is for SETC to have a location of its own someday.

“We enjoy working with local business owners. Restaurants and art galleries have great spaces for cabarets and play readings, but we hope to teach acting, improv and children’s drama classes and partner with other performing artists. Having our own space would make that possible,” Manning said.

In the meantime, putting together events at Sisters Saloon is on the agenda. “Cage-Free Comedy” with headliner Jake Woodmansee and other comedians will take place on Thursday, July 20. Tickets will be available online for $15 and $20 at the door. This show is rated R.

“Mixed Bag” a night of storytelling, led by Central Oregonian Dan Cohen, will take place on Thursday August 24. This event will feature mature themes and is not recommended for children. On Saturday, August 26, singers will be back for another cabaret. All summer performances start at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening and dinner service at 6:30 p.m.

In addition to the summer happenings, SETC will produce its first full-length play, “Steel Magnolias,” this fall.
