This Summer: Iconic Artists, Newly Reimagined

June 13, 2024

As our Winter Season cools down, our Summer Cabaret Series is heating up! Featuring songs from the 1960’s to the 2010’s, the Summer Cabaret lineup is bringing new and returning artists to FST’s stages.


Opening the Summer Cabaret Series is Rhinestone Cowgirls, where three powerhouse singers take the stage to perform fresh arrangements of classic and contemporary hits in an elegant and authentic journey celebrating the evolution of country music.

This sparkling cabaret was created by Nancy Allen, the same woman behind Divas Three from last summer. Allen takes the audience favorite and gives it a new twist, from the powerhouse vocalists to the authentic, down-to-earth women we all know and love. Audiences across the country have called Rhinestone Cowgirls “Fantastic”, “Amazing”, and “High-Energy”.

“Both country fans and non-country music fans will love this show,” said Allen. “One of my favorite comments that we get after the show often is, ‘I didn’t know I was a fan of country music until I saw your show!’ That is so rewarding to hear because I paid special attention to creating a show where everyone could connect to the songs in some way, whether a die hard country fan or not.”

Returning performers in Rhinestone Cowgirls include Samantha Duval, Charity Farrell, and Gianna Maria. All three performers made their FST Debut last summer in Divas Three, and Duval was most recently seen on FST’s Mainstage in Little Shop of Horrors as Audrey.

Spanning eight decades of country music, Rhinestone Cowgirls features songs from some of the most legendary female vocalists of the genre, including “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “Nine to Five,” and “Man, I Feel Like A Woman.” This summer, come to FST for a boot-scootin’ time with the Rhinestone Cowgirls, beginning May 21st in FST’s Goldstein Cabaret.


Next up in the summer lineup is The Music of Laurel Canyon featuring Buffalo Rome. This down-to-earth, acoustic trip down memory lane pays tribute to the Laurel Canyon music scene during the 1960’s and 70’s.

Laurel Canyon is a mountainous neighborhood in the hills of Los Angeles, California. The region became popular with counter-culturalists in the 60’s, with many artists such as Cass Elliot, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and James Taylor calling it home.

This nostalgic cabaret is performed by Buffalo Rome, a country folk band from Nashville, Tennessee. It will make you feel like you traveled back in time to when life was easier. With songs like “Monday, Monday”, “Take It To the Limit”, and “California Dreamin’”, you’re sure to “Take it Easy” with The Music of Laurel Canyon featuring Buffalo Rome, beginning June 18th in FST’s Court Cabaret.


Rounding out the Summer Cabaret Series is The Four C Notes, an authentic recreation of Franki Valli and The Four Seasons. This look back at one of the popular groups in music history features some of their greatest hits, including “Sherry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You,” “Let’s Hang On,” and many more.

The Four Seasons were an extremely popular vocal quartet that rose to fame in the 1960’s. They received many accolades over the years, including being inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.

The Four C Notes was created by John Michael Coppola, best known for his appearance in Chicago’s long-running production of the Broadway smash hit Jersey Boys.

This high-energy cabaret has been described as a “can’t miss” by audiences around the country. Come join us in this breezy throwback to the music of our youth in The Four C Notes, beginning August 6th in FST’s Goldstein Cabaret.

From a salute to the most impactful female country music stars and the music that shaped a generation, to The Four Seasons’ greatest hits, FST’s Summer Cabaret series is sure to have you tapping your toes and humming along all summer long.
