An Evening of Musical Theater
A much-needed scholarship fund for the advanced training of nurses and patient advocates at the Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center will be established in honor of the center's founder and original medical director, Barbara Boslaugh Haner. Our first fundraiser dedicated to this cause is an evening of live music acknowledging Barb's love of musical theater. Four professional singers from the world of regional theater will perform songs drawn from some of Barb's favorite shows in the intimate 300 seat setting of the Snohomish County PUD Auditorium, a special treat for Barb's family, friends and professional associates as well as musical theater fans from the Everett area.
The singers joining us for this evening are:
Billie Wildrick, our local girl who made good, is a graduate of Snohomish High School who went on to perform in both supporting and starring roles in our regional professional theaters as well as theaters around the nation and on Broadway. She is most known here in Everett for her portrayal of Sally Bowles in the Village Theater production of Cabaret. She will share such tunes as "Life is a Cabaret", "He's a Tramp", and "What I Did For Love".
Josh Carter is a talented character actor as well as an instrumental musician and singer. He has played many ensemble, featured, and starring roles at the Village Theater, the 5th Ave. Theatre and all of Seattle's professional venues. Everett fans will remember him best from Pump Boys and Dinettes and will not want to miss his upcoming starring role in The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes at the Village Theater. He will share his guitar work with us as well as his voice on a medley of tunes from Das Barbecu and "You're The One That I Want" from Grease, and he will collaborate with all the other singers on several inspirational ensemble numbers.
Alan Wheaton grew up in Everett and Mukilteo, graduating from Kamiak High School as a multi-instrumental musician. He went on to be trained as a classical tenor with a flexible lyrical tenor voice that is ideal for his work in early sacred music and as a soloist in oratorios around the Seattle area. Since he grew up with her as a family friend, he is excited to stretch his repertoire and present tunes like "Maria", "Tonight", "On The Street Where You Live", and "Bring Him Home" in memory of Barb.
Natalie Ingrisano has been called by some "the best young soprano in Seattle today." She has sung around the area to great acclaim on her own and as Alan's duet partner, so we were delighted that she was available to sing for us. Her body of work includes Early Music, Opera and the more operatic musical theater selections. She will share with us tunes like "I Could Have Danced All Night", "Hopelessly Devoted", "I Dreamed A Dream", and "Tonight".
