 Latham Players to Star in 
“Waiting for Oscar”

The sun will certainly come out when the Latham Players take to the stage for their ten minutes of fame performing numbers from the smash Broadway musical Annie at the Cotuit Center for the Arts . The Players are one of nine Cape Cod special needs organizations hamming it up in Waiting for Oscar, featuring selections from some of the most famous and beloved Hollywood movie and song productions. Shows are at 6pm Friday, May 16 and Saturday, May 17, and 2pm on Sunday, May 18.

Tickets are $20 per person with cabaret (chairs at tables) seating. The event is expected to sell out. Purchase your tickets today online HERE or by calling the box office at 508-428-0669. All performances are in the Main Performance space of the Cotuit Center located at 4404 Falmouth Rd. in Cotuit.

“Waiting for Oscar is a Hollywood musical revue of sorts that brings us to Mayfield, where the promise of an OSCAR Night turns the small town upside down as performers prepare for the big event,” according to longtime Latham Players Director Penelope Chatterton.  “I have been up to my ears finalizing costumes and rehearsing with this highly enthusiastic troupe of nine players. They all LOVE theater which makes my job even more enjoyable.  It’s been a joy watching them embrace their respective characters for this live, collaborative event.”
Waiting for Oscar, is produced by Cape Cod Collaborative Arts Network – CapeCodCAN! dedicated to providing opportunity for inclusion and active participation in the arts for people with disabilities on the Cape.
