A Musical Cabaret” October 5, 6 and 7 at 7:30pm at Hilton Head Prep’s own Main Street Theatre. This hour long musical revue is performed cabaret-style and features Hilton Head Prep’s wealth of talented actors, dancers, musicians, and singers. From the youngest to the oldest, these students shine as they perform classic and contemporary hits from Broadway, TV and Film musicals.

It was a very productive and rewarding year and Prep is ready to get back on stage!
Veteran Hilton Head Prep solo performers JP Carr, Cassie Cohen, Calvin Middleton, Jared Reuben, Hayes Wilkinson and Anthony Sayneh lead the cast of 60 students. Joining them are several new brilliantly talented students including Beatriz Santos Maylinch from Brazil. Under the direction of Lauren Stuligross, the harmonies are poignant in “The New World”, “When I Grow Up”, and “Happiness”and Patti Maurer’s choreography promises several show stopping moments in “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat”, “Easy Street”, “We Go Together”, and “Consider Yourself”. The production will include the Hilton Head Prep Orchestra under the direction of Catherine Klimoff playing a variety of music from Vivaldi to the Best of Queen and the Prep Band under the direction of Brandon Thompson playing their rendition of “Tequila” entitled “Chicken Nuggets” and “Africa” by Toto.
