Join us for an evening in support of the RGMC at our Casino Royale.
Held at the magnificent Memorial Art Gallery on University Ave, enjoy hors d'oeuvres, and performances by the RGMC and special guests. Try your hand at one of the Monte Carlo style casino and bid on one of our numerous raffle baskets or silent auction items.
The gallery will also be open for 2 hours for attendees. Sponsored by Trillium Health and Howard Hanna Real Estate Services.
All proceeds benefit the RGMC and support our mission of creating social change through excellence in the choral arts.
Miscast features talented members of the Rochester Gay Men's Chorus performing outside casting restrictions. Each performer will be singing a piece by a character for which they could never be cast. This type of cabaret-style show has been performed from Broadway to Los Angeles and many places between, and the RGMC is excited to bring it back to Rochester again this year!
Audience members will hear songs from musicals they know well, performed like they've never heard them before. Please note that some language may not be suitable for children.
The performance will be interpreted for the deaf.

We'll be at School of the Arts on Saturday, May 18th at 7:30pm for Finding Oz. Finding Oz starts "at a high-school reunion 20 years in the future. After a harmless incident occurs, we are transported back to high school (in the present day) where three characters, a gay male, a loner, and a gender-queer teacher are introduced." The story is told through dialogue and the use of music from the OZ musicals (The Boy from Oz, Wicked, The Wiz, and the Wizard of Oz, as well as from the songbook of Judy Garland), and the use of projections.
Repertoire: The Boy From Oz: All the Lives of Me; Don't Cry Out Loud; Quiet Please, There's a Lady on the Stage; Songbook of Judy Garland: Smile; The Wiz: Brand New Day; Don't Nobody Bring Me No Bad News; Ease on Down the Road; We Got It; You Can't Win; The Wizard of Oz: Over the Rainbow; Wicked: What is This Feeling?; Defying Gravity; For Good.
