The Gingers & Tonics Cabaret
Lincoln Community Playhouse is pleased to present The Gingers and Tonics in a cabaret performance October 23-25. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is a freewill donation, but reservations should be made at lincolnplayhouse.com or by calling the box office at 402-489-7529, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The vocal group consists of Soren Tobey, Laura Lynn Horst, Michael Trutna, and Stuart Richey. Jan Malone accompanies the group on piano. The Gingers and Tonics met performing together in numerous theatrical productions throughout the Lincoln area. In 2019, they responded to the Lincoln Saltdogs’ annual call for performers and submitted an original arrangement of the National Anthem. An abundance of ginger coiffures and a nod to the well-known libation come together to provide the name of the group. With a unifying love of everything musical theatre, pop, and jazz, The Gingers and Tonics perform little-known gems and reinvigorate classic tunes with love and just a twist of personal flair.
The performances will be in the Mainstage with seating capacity reduced from 270 to 50. Seating will be in “pods” with patrons spatially distanced throughout the auditorium. The audience and staff will be required to wear masks. The Gingers and Tonics will be performing without masks, but will be 20 feet from the first row of audience. The Playhouse has installed Air Scrubbers (air purification system) in the auditorium, lobby, and greenroom. Please check lincolnplayhouse.com for a complete list of safety measures that have been initiated for this production. The cabaret runs about an hour with no intermission.
