FST Announces Summer Mainstage and Cabaret Seasons

Arts & Culture


Florida Studio Theatre has announced its lineup for the 2019 Summer Mainstage and Cabaret Seasons.

The Off-Broadway sensation, The Marvelous Wonderettes, opens FST’s 28th Summer Mainstage season. When four friends are called upon to perform at their 1958 senior prom, they rally together to entertain their classmates with classic hits like “It’s My Party,” “Lollipop,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” and “Mr. Sandman.” Next on the Mainstage is Ethel Waters: His Eye is on the Sparrow by Sarasota playwright Larry Parr, which world-premiered at FST in 2005 with Jannie Jones, who will be lending her voice to the role once again. Concluding the Summer Mainstage season is the regional premiere of The Cottage by Sandy Rustin, a sophisticated romantic comedy that starts to unfold when Sylvia Van Kipness decides to expose her secret love affair to her husband.

Opening the FST’s Summer Cabaret Series is Come Together: When the 60s Met the 70s by Carole J. Bufford, a music revue that explores the changing musical landscape from 1965-1975. Next up, due to audience demand, The Swingaroos return for a third summer with a brand-new show inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood, The Swingaroos: Hollywood Serenade, paying homage to icons like Frank Sinatra, Cab Calloway, and Fred Astaire. The summer season concludes with a celebration of one of the most successful acts in music history—Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons in Who Loves You.
