Tabard 2015-2016 Season Presents


April 8–May 1


Starring Tabard's original 2009 cast

You've asked, and we've listened. We will cap our 2015-2016 season with the return of the rousing, exciting and glorious musical CROWNS, starring Tabard's original 2009 cast strutting their “hattitude”: Glenna Brambill-Williams, Debra J. Crenshaw, James Creer, Juanita Harris, Tracy Perrilliat, and Paula Warren. In this moving and celebratory musical, hats become a springboard for the storytelling and exploration of coming home.

Jazz Nights with NINETEEN

Nineteen continues its traversal of the suites by the masters of the jazz orchestra, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. In 2013 we performed their adaptation of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite. This evening's program features their original Far East Suite, inspired by the Ellington band's tours of the middle and far east in the 1960s.

Elect to Laugh: 2016 with Will Durst

Elect To Laugh: 2016 with Will Durst is a brand- new, hysterical, one- man show stalking the presidential election cycle like white on rice. Ably assisted by his trusty overhead projector, this hilarious 80 minute production reflects Durst’s outraged and outrageous sensibilities, accessing the topical through the jugular, as current as Bernie Sanders’ lead staffer’s latest tweet.

Elect to Laugh: 2016 hits the hypocritical where it hurts the funniest chronicling the country’s torturously amusing path through the primaries, debates, ads, mud, spin, tears, flip- flops and flop- flips. It is comedy for people who read or know someone who does. Political comedy for folks who don’t like politics.
