Microadventure #8: Pelican Cabaret Singers at Sun City Center

This microadventure really started with a macroadventure that involved me singing on stage under the tutelage of Faye Nepon. Through that performance, I was introduced to Faye’s sister, Cyd Charrow, who is part of the Pelican Cabaret Singers.

When I heard that the Pelican Cabaret Singers were going to be performing not too far from Sarasota, I absolutely wanted to attend!

The performance invitation read:The Pelican Cabaret Singers will perform after a delicious lunch by Banquet Masters in Community Hall on Saturday February 12.  The doors will be open at 11:30 a.m. to view raffle baskets and socialize;  lunch at noon;  followed by a performance by the Pelican Players Cabaret Singers.

I was told that the performance would be in “Sun City Center” which sounds like a building, but as it turns out, it’s actually the city name of a 55+ community.  Though this created a bit of confusion for both me and my GPS, I eventually figured out that this little city was very close to Ruskin, the place that Kellie, from Microadventure #5 lives.  Kellie had said she’d be happy to meet up for microadventures, and she likes theater (we both love “Beauty and the Beast” and Disney music) and happily accepted my invitation to join me!

I’d been eating very healthfully since the beginning of the year..  including no desserts, sugar, or chocolate.  However, I could not resist completely indulging at this delicious luncheon.

There was a buffet-style with salads, veggies, chicken, and lasagna.

Check out the dessert table! Though I started with the carrot cake, I admit, I went back for samplings of the cheese cake and chocolate cake. It was Valentine’s week after all..

The program included some fun show tunes that I hadn’t heard in years.  The audience couldn’t help but snap their fingers or sway to the beat on some of these old favorites.  “King of the Road” brought back happy memories – Glenn Campbell on the record player when I was a kid.

Cyd’s performance was “Gimme Gimme” from the musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie.”  I haven’t seen that play yet, but after watching this performance, I’m putting it on my list! Cyd did an awesome job! 

It was such fun to see this performance and share it with Kellie.  Musical theater, delicious food, and new friends! What a treat!
