Kansas City is full of beautiful voices begging to be heard. Musical Theater Heritage opened the call to local vocalists last year for its Musical Mondays
, evenings of cocktails and impromptu show tunes at Off Center Theatre (2450 Grand). "We now have a list of about 150 people who want to sing," says Chad Gerlt, MTH associate producer. Consequently, most performance rights have been moved to a lottery system -- e-mail email@example.com
to be considered -- through which MTH selects seven guest singers to perform alongside such headliners as Ben Gulley, Julie Shaw and master of ceremonies Tim Scott. Starting at 7:30 p.m., performers sing their choice of show tunes, standards or cabaret material, in groups, duets or solo and backed by a three-piece band. Musical Mondays also are scheduled later in the year on August 2, September 20 and November 22. Admission costs $15, and reservations are recommended. Call 816-221-6987.
