MARTINSBURG— A new Halloween event is coming to downtown Martinsburg this fall.
Stage Fright Cabaret will be presented this weekend at the historic Apollo Civic Theater. The shows will take place at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Heather Lee Perry, Artistic Director of the Apollo Theater, is the show director and Zane Oberholtzer is the musical director. The team is thrilled to bring the Stage Fright Cabaret to downtown Martinsburg – a show that will bring a unique twist to the Halloween spirit.
Perry said she is most looking forward to bringing a unique selection of music to audiences and showcasing local talent.
“It will definitely get people into the spirit of Halloween and the spirit of autumn,” she added. “The musical selections are spooky, familiar songs that people associate with the season, with a few surprises. We don’t do cabarets often, and there’s a variety of songs, so there’s something for everyone on this show.
She also added that one aspect of the show will include many young and up-and-coming artists performing for the audience.
“This is the first time we’ve done a Halloween-themed cabaret. We don’t often do cabarets, but it seemed like the perfect season to have one. We have a group of young people who have really stepped up to do this,” said Aubrey Ervin, Apollo program director.
The show will feature songs from popular movies and Broadway shows.
“There will be spooky, wicked songs that will get you into the Halloween spirit,” Perry said.
Stage Fright Cabaret is rated PG-13, according to the website.
