Backwards In High Heels” Oregon Cabaret Theatre Sept — Nov


Oregon Cabaret Theatre presents “Backwards In High Heels” Sept – Nov

Backwards in High Heels

Backwards in High Heels

A striking show about Rogue Valley’s very own former resident Ginger Rogers who famously said that she did everything Fred Astaire did but “backwards and in high heels”.
Best known for her partnership with Fred Astaire, Ginger had a successful Hollywood career including dramatic roles as well. The show follows her from her teen years in vaudeville to her Oscar win for 1940 film Kittly Foyle.
Backwards In High Heels combines cherished standards with new original songs, a compelling play, and many stunning dance sequences to tell Ginger’s fascinating story.

Ain’t Misbehavin’ at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre, June — Aug


Ain’t Misbehavin’ June 6 – August 31

Ain't Misbehavin'

Ain’t Misbehavin’

In Ain’t Misbehavin’, the soul of 1930s Harlem is captured in this finger-snapping and toe tapping revue. Thomas “Fats” Waller was an iconic musical force, known for his exuberant personality, energetic stride-piano playing, infectious humor and jumping beat.
Ain’t Misbehavin’ evokes his good-time joie-de-vivre as a versatile cast sings, dances and carries on to the songs he made famous: Jitterbug Waltz, This Joint Is Jumpin’, Your Feets Too Big, Spreadin’ Rhythm Around, Keepin’ Out of Mischief Now, Honeysuckle Rose and, of course, Ain’t Misbehavin’. Sassy, silly, sultry and with moments of devastating beauty.
Oregon Cabaret Theatre hits the spot if you’re looking for fun, talented and snazzy-jazzy entertainment.  One of Ashland’s performing arts venues that have shows on Monday nights!
June 6 – August 31

Oregon Cabaret Theatre presents “Double Trouble” Feb-Mar


Oregon Cabaret Theatre “Double Trouble”

Oregon Cabaret Theatre

Oregon Cabaret Theatre

Set in Hollywood in the early 1940s, the show features Jimmy & Bobby Martin, a pair of song-writing brothers summoned to a major movie studio and given the golden opportunity to write a song for the movies…on the double. Their efforts are interrupted by wacky characters including the boorish studio boss, an ancient sound engineer, an effete director, a sleazy agent and a buxom, scheming screen siren – all played by the same two singing, dancing, piano-playing actors in a rambunctious musical tour-de-farce written by Bob and Jim Walton.

The Oregon Cabaret Theatre is a favorite musical venue for both visitors and locals alike. If you’re in the mood for a tuneful campy romp, go to the Cabaret for dining and entertainment.  Open on Monday nights.
February 7 – March 30
Previews February 5 & 6
Performances Thursday – Sunday @ 8:00
Sunday Brunch matinees @ 1:00

An Evening with Rumi, 9/24



Ashland Contemporary Theatre is proud to host “An Evening with Rumi.” It’s a fantastic one-man performance accompanied by live musicians and dervish dancing. For a taste: catch the YouTube clip: http://bit.ly/EveningWithRumi
One night only! Saturday, September 24th at 8pm.

In this vivid montage of Rumi poetry and first-person narrative threads, the life, levity and luminosity of Sufi mystic Jalaluddin Rumi comes alive, as award-winning actor Dan Furst presents the revered and irreverent poet Rumi. Based on translations from Coleman Barks, Kabir Helminski, and Jonathan Star, Dan Furst dramatically embodies the great poet with verve and sapient gusto! With sound and mood-scape accompaniment by musicians Seabury Gould on bamboo flute and bouzouki, Marco Zonka on percussion and vocal textures, and dervish turning by Yahya Suzanna Nadler, an atmosphere of earthy and ecstatic passion and reflection is evoked through dramatic action, verse, and song.
Performance is at the Bellview Grange, 1050 Tolman Creek Rd, Ashland
Tickets: General $15.00, Seniors $12.00, Students $8.00, available at Paddington Station, Ashland and Grocery Outlet, Medford
