Dark Hearts

Friday Feb 14 & Sat Feb 15
Advance tickets $35 online HERE

Encore Players is mounting an original musical cabaret to benefit the Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts, February 14 and 15. Doors open at 6pm, with the show starting promptly at 7pm (running time 1:20).

The cabaret features local actors and singers portraying famous Broadway villains, who take the stage to share their deepest desires, untold to us in their original story lines, and sing the songs they have always wanted to sing. The result is a comedic romp into the minds and hearts of each villain, with hysterical twists and turns!

Ticket price includes a variety of decadent desserts and fruit, with complimentary local wines and cheese. Profits will be donated to assist TCFA with interior improvements to the building and the promotion of arts programs within the community. You won’t want to miss this very special Valentine’s weekend event!
