Coming Up at the Orchard Project: Charles Busch and More!

Dearest Friends of the Orchard Project-

We are still coming down from the excitement of our first session of 2018, our evening with Lady Rizo, and our first of our 2018 Work-In-Progress Cabarets. And even better is what is still ahead: From Tony Award-nominated legend Charles Busch at Putnam Place to our Session Two Cabaret to our June 29th Celebrity Filled Karaoke Kabaret, there is much to come.  We can't imagine our time in Saratoga Springs coming without involving as many of our local friends as possible. With so much to look forward to, come and join us and be a part of something new. 


Charles Busch: My Kinda 60's
June 15 at 8pm at Putnam Place

For four decades, the TONY-award nominated actor, playwright and drag-legend Charles Busch has written and starred in such adored and timeless comedies as “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom”, “Psycho Beach Party”, “The Divine Sister”, “The Lady in Question”, “Charles Busch’s Cleopatra” and “The Tale of the Alergist’s Wife”. His latest work “Charles Busch: My Kinda 60s!” weaves tales of his Manhattan childhood and adolescence raised by his “indomitable Aunt Lillian” during that tumultuous decade — with a musical narrative that mixes the period pop of Burt Bacharach, Jimmy Web, The Beatles, Henry Mancini and Bob Dylan with show music by Sondheim, Kander and Ebb and others. Don’t miss this rare appearance by a beloved icon of the American Theater in a candid, heartfelt and hilarious evening of stories and songs.

Free to Orchard Project Members. For special $20 SARATOGA PRIDE tickets:
