Playhouse on Park’s ‘Falcetti Four’ will reunite for a Broadway-style cabaret during ‘From the Porch – A Summer Series’ at the Hill-Stead Museum.


Join singers from past  productions at West Hartford’s Playhouse on Park for a 90-minute cabaret filled with show tunes, jazz standards, and more! The event will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 26 (rain date: Aug. 27) at 6:30 p.m. at the Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington. Gates open at 6 p.m.

Many of you will remember Carolyn (Cumming) Burke, Hillary Ekwall, Amanda Forker, and Rick Fountain from various performances on the Playhouse stage, but the group was also known as the “Falcetti Four.” The Falcetti Four performed weekly for over two years at Falcetti Music in Blue Back Square as part of a Playhouse on Park outreach program. They developed quite a following over the years and are incredibly excited to reunite for this performance.

Tickets are $25; they will not be sold at the door.
