Event Description

Brucemore’s Cabaret in the Courtyard Presents

Songs of America and Broadway


Brucemore’s sophisticated and saucy nightclub event, Cabaret in the Courtyard, will return for two back-to-back weekends August 11-13 and 18-20 at 7:30 p.m.  Enjoy an evening under the stars in a setting unlike any other as the historic courtyard is converted into a cabaret club with tables, chairs, twinkling lights, and stars on the stage and in the sky.  This year Cabaret in the Courtyard presents two very different weekends – you won’t want to miss either!


The two shows will each feature a selection of four to five extremely talented local performers who you are sure to know or recognize. Over the course of the two weekends, the performers joining us include Jackson Bartelme, Catherine Blades, Peter Evans, Staisha Federick, Garrett Hufford, Lacie de Souza, Alex Schulte, Alicia Strong, and Shawndell Young. These individual artists have been selected to be featured in either one or both themes to best showcase their unique voices and capture the emotions of the music. Come to both weekends to experience all nine performers!


The first weekend, Songs of America will present song selections that arouse memories of the events that have inspired the evolution of America over the past 40 years. Not the traditional American song book children grew up singing in school, but instead the songs that speak to the America that was forged by post-Vietnam, the Reagan years, and September 11. The songs will resonate with the America that we have become today.


The second weekend, Broadway (August 18-20), will transport you to New York City for a compilation of your favorite Broadway tunes including the most popular hits from the past several years and today. The featured artists will not disappoint as their powerful voices transition from classic tunes to new adventurous work that has recently premiered on the stage.


Advance tickets are $25 per adult and $20 per Brucemore member. All tickets are $30 the day of the event (if available). Space is limited; please call (319) 362-7375 or visit www.brucemore.org to purchase tickets. Individuals reserving five or more advance tickets will have tables reserved under their name. All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. with gates opening at 7:00 p.m. On-site parking is available by entering Linden Drive gate. Patrons are encouraged to bring their favorite beverages, but no food is allowed.
