"Let's Get Lost"
Andrea reprises the show which pays homage to her favorites: Audrey Hepburn (Two for the Road), Fred Astaire (I Won't Dance / Fine Romance), and, of course, torch songs! (Smoke Gets in Your Eyes / Say It Isn't So). In addition, Andrea puts her own spin on a comic Broadway number and a modern chart topper. And for her fans, she's included her classic renditions of These Foolish Things and New Words. Plus, a special tribute to "the arranger" including her longtime Musical Director, Shelly Markham.

REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES
By Josefina López
Directed by Seema Sueko
Set in a tiny sewing factory in East Los Angeles, five full-figured women race to meet an impossible deadline to keep the small business alive. This award-winning comedy by acclaimed playwright Josefina López was the basis for the film of the same name starring America Ferrera and has been updated for The Pasadena Playhouse's 2015 production. Real Women Have Curves celebrates real bodies, life in southern California, and the incredible bond when women work together.

PALM SPRINGS PRIDE CABARET SHOW
GREETINGS FROM BELLA DA BALL:
The Greater Palm Springs Pride is only months away. The Festival and the Parade will both be held downtown Palm Springs again this year. And, the festival will be a FREE admission event again!
Touching base with you about your interest in performing at Greater Palm Springs Pride on the Cabaret Stage. It will be located somewhere on or near Palm Canyon (layout plans still being finalized).
The Greater Palm Springs Pride dates are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, November 6-7-8.
Festival hours tentatively will be Saturday, November 7, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday, November 8, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The parade on Sunday will start further north on Palm Canyon and end near Amado and the Hyatt. This will also be one of the main entrances to the Festival.
Please let everyone you know what the days are for this year's festival and parade and that it will be a free event!
Now, onto specifics about possibly performing at Palm Springs Pride. Please review and answer and email back to me. Please feel free to forward this to other potential entertainers. All responses are subject to review and consideration. Thank you!
1. Please let me know if you are interested in appearing at the Greater Palm Springs Pride. If so, continue onto the following questions:
2. Do you have a preference of Saturday or Sunday?
3. If time is available both days, would you like to appear both days?
4. Do you have a preference of approximate appearance time?
No guarantees on exact time.
5.Will you bring CD's with your songs? Or will you have musical equipment? (keyboard, guitar, band). If equipment, you provide and set-up must be quick and easy.
6. All song content, stage attire, stage presence should be G-rated as this is an outside event, open to all ages, open to public. Musical numbers should be under four minutes each.
7. Only one person back-stage (if needed) per entertainer as quick dresser. Non-entertainers do NOT remain back stage.
8. No smoking at any time on stage or dressing room.
9. All CD's must be presented to DJ/sound and/or cabaret manager a minimum of 45 minutes before your stage time. Please allow time for parking, walking, etc.
10. All schedules are approximate and performers need to be flexible if they are requested on stage prior to their planned start time or if coordinator deems a later start necessary.
11. Entertainers may sell their CD's/souvenirs on the side table.
12. Length of performance time is subject to review and set-up by cabaret coordinator and pride committee. Stage time is subject to number of performers, type of music, etc. Vocalists may be 5-25 minutes, with possible break? Drag personalities may be 1-4 numbers with breaks between songs for changes if they wish. If you have a minimum or maximum you wish, please advise and that will be taken into consideration.
13. The cabaret is a drama-free zone. Anyone not abiding by coordinator's, committee's, security's rules and regulations may be asked to leave.
14. Do you wish to have a photo of you in pride program? If so, a high resolution photo is requested and should be sent at a later time when requested. Please do not send photos at this time.
15. Appearances/performances are volunteer, no compensation. Tips are yours to keep.
16. Entertainers should not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Pride reserves the right to not have an entertainer perform if it appears they are under the influence.
17. Please respond either way as soon as possible. Please include your cell phone number, best email address, Facebook page.
18. In order to be included in the pride program and promotional materials, a response is needed asap. A faster response is very much appreciated.
As in previous years, the line up can fill up quickly so do not wait until the last minute as all submissions must be reviewed by the committee, program scheduled, press and publicity sent out, and programs printed.
