Organized by many talented individuals, including Jim Hurley and Norma Atwood, CapeCodCan!'s production of Waiting for an Oscar is a whimsical story, filled with tunes from famous movie musicals. The premise of the show is that my character, “Mandy,” is working to save the Mayfield Theater, which is going be turned into a parking lot so that funds may be brought into the other small businesses on Main Street. She soon hears word that people from Hollywood are planning on having their Oscar Night celebration at the little Mayfield Theater. She, along with the groups of performers, works together to attempt to save the theater, believing this to be the opportunity of a lifetime. I won’t spoil the ending, but it s not what you think!
Working on the show, which was originally performed at the Cotuit Center for the Arts in May, was an amazing experience in itself. I got the opportunity to work with an incredible group of people that otherwise I would have never been able to meet. The theater group is inspiring - full of life and overall very talented, performing nearly flawlessly for a full house for both nights and the for matinee.
Now Waiting for an Oscar is back! An abbreviated version of the show will be performed this Friday, October 17th at the Kennedy museum on Main Street! The show will be performed at 6:30. Stop by for a great night of show tunes and overall fun! Not to mention, If you arrive around 5:30 there will be a pleasant surprise. Hope to see you there!
