Don’t Tell Mama

Thursday – Saturday February 22-24, 7:00 pm
Sunday February 25, 4:00 pm

Winner of the 2017 MetroStar Talent Challenge presents her new offering, Uncharted. Directed by Stearns Matthews, the program includes an eclectic mix of musical theatre, jazz, and pop, from Jerry Herman to “It’s Raining Men.” Bistro Award-winning musical director Jeff Cubeta is on piano, Brian Ward on guitar and bass, and Robn MacMillan on drums.

Throughout the MetroStar competition, Ellet impressed us with her intelligent and imaginatively conceived renditions. In addition, beyond the lyrical beauty of her voice, what distinguishes her work is the sensitivity of her interpretations—her ability to convey the feelings underlying a lyric by means of acting choices that seem like unguarded internal expression, not an actor’s artful contrivance. On top of that, she has the chops to deliver the big notes when her interpretation calls for it.
