Garbeau's Mini, a new cabaret series in Folsom

Stage Nine Theatre in Folsom has collaborated with Mark Ferreira, owner of the recently closed Garbeau’s Dinner Theatre, and together they are launching a cabaret series called Garbeau’s Mini. Beginning this Sunday, Stage Nine Theatre will host the intimate Broadway revue the first and third Sundays of each month. Ferreira will be at the piano, joined by four singers who will present an evening of Broadway and Off-Broadway show tunes.

Proceeds from the performances will go toward a fund to reopen Garbeau’s Dinner Theatre in a new location.

The first few Garbeau’s Mini productions will include crooner Zach Abdallah and lyrical soprano Meg Masterson, both of whom were in Garbeau’s final production There’s a Little Bit of Broadway in Everyone. The other two singers, Lafras le Roux and Anne Marie Pringle, are active performers in local community theater.

This Sunday, July 19th, a champagne reception will be held 7 p.m. at the theater, with the performance beginning at 7:30. Stage Nine in Folsom is located at 717 Sutter Street in Historic Folsom. Reservations can be made by calling (916) 353-1001.
