Thrilled to announce KEYS TO THE CITY starring Jim Ciampi and Seth Holbrook will be returning to the Footlights Theatre!
In keeping with the tradition of a dueling piano genre, Keys to The City is a high energy show filled with all the great hits of the 30's, 40's and 50's. 2 guys, 2 pianos and 2 microphones will have you singing and laughing all night long.
The Footlights Theatre will host to more great music with an upcoming jazz and blues cabaret featuring Kelley Caufield and Kevin Smith. “Feeling Good: A Cabaret” will be an evening of jazz standards, bluesy favorites from stage and screen, and original arrangements by Smith of well-known songs re-imagined in the jazz and blues styles.
As a music student at the University of Southern Maine School of Music, Caufield studied musical theater voice and repertoire using classical/operatic techniques with Ellen Chickering and Edward Reichert. The decade that followed included performances with Portland Players, College Light Opera Company, the Boothbay Opera House, Portland Symphony Orchestra, Bangor Symphony Orchestra, The North Shore Philharmonic, Maine ProMusica Orchestra, Music Doing Good (out of Houston, Texas) and Portland’s Good Theater. She conceived, wrote and starred in her one-woman show, LEGENDS: The Music of Judy Garland. She is a private voice teacher and specializes in fusing classical vocal techniques with musical theater and popular repertoire.
Smith has been performing and music-directing with local theaters for 15 years. Most recently the music director for City Theater in Biddeford, he has also performed with Maine State Music Theater, Portland Stage Company, Lyric Music Theater, Portland Players and Lucid Theater. He is also the music director for both Falmouth High and Poland Regional High’s music theater programs. He has also composed original music for various plays and local independent films, including one that saw a screening at the famed Grauman’s Chinese Theater during the 48-hour Film Festival competition.
