Broadway by the Book is a cabaret of songs from musicals adapted from or inspired by books. Some of our favorite shows began their life as books, and Dreamcatcher's singers will perform selections from such shows as The Secret Garden, Wicked, Fun Home, Mame, Damn Yankees and many more. Join us for an evening of song and celebration of the rich history of literature brought to the stage. The audience is welcome to sing along or sit back and enjoy the ride!

Performers in the cabaret include Dreamcatcher company members Clark Carmichael, Harry Patrick Christian, Laura Ekstrand and Scott McGowan, who will be joined by guest Vanessa Parvin, a member of the close harmony group Marquee Five. The singers will be accompanied by Julian Gordon, an actor and musician based in Summit who spends much of his time performing on the road.
