Center Players proudly presents popular local vocal group Way Past Midnight for two “Broadway Showstoppers” cabaret concerts.

The 90-minute concerts will feature a wide array of classic Broadway tunes, including "You’ll Never Walk Alone" (Carousel), "Bill" (Showboat), "I Don’t Know How to Love Him" (Jesus Christ Superstar), "Somewhere" (West Side Story), "Dancing Queen" (Mamma Mia) and "What I Did for Love" (A Chorus Line).

Way Past Midnight is a cross between a classical ensemble and a rock band; performing in all styles from rock to opera. Seasoned musicians Mara O’Kelly (vocals), Melody Stevens (vocals, keyboard), Patty Lazzara (flute) and Evita Belmonte (percussion, vocals) comprise the core of the group. Several aspiring young guest artists from the local community will also perform a selection at each concert.

Members of Way Past Midnight have won international competitions, toured domestically and abroad, earned advanced college degrees in music, and have performed in venues including the San Francisco Opera House, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the Kennedy Center. Way Past Midnight’s musicians have also performed with, for, and on the same concert bill as Chuck Berry, Pope John Paul II, and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.
