When Rebecca Hass dares to ask her audience “ Am I your first?” - She means opera singer. This 20 year veteran of the opera, concert and musical stage dishes on her public and private life in her one woman show “Wanna Sing a Showtune”.
With theatrical wit and savvy this multi faceted comedic writer and entertainer gives you a show filled with laughter and humanity as mom and opera singer meld into one. Despite having a career that has embraced Mozart, Bizet, Verdi and Wagner, in “Wanna Sing a Showtune’ this secret Broadway baby tells all through monologue and music from the likes of Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Stephen Sondheim. In this no holds barred show discover what on earth a Mezzo Soprano is, and why it stinks to be one. Travel the operatic heights of emotion as you experience the plight of our Mezzo-never to be diva-Soprano as well as find out the importance of the Car Show to ones nuptial opportunities.
We are taken on an autobiographical musical journey that not only entertains, but also reminds us to celebrate the special gifts and talents we each possess. An affirming evening of theatre that allows us to laugh, cry and, as we say in the theatre business, is shorter than “Cats”.
Sunday's performance is presented as part of the Orillia Concert Association, and has sold out on subscription, so no tickets will be available unless you've already purchased them!
Many of you might also know Rebecca as a blogger and author of The Resonant Life, which chronicles her recent move to Victoria and work as a life coach.
