Footlights program takes over Arnold's



If you're sampling the arts downtown on Feb. 15, be sure to add the Enquirer's Footlights to your schedule. Musical theater students from the College-Conservatory of Music will perform a cabaret in the spirit of Victorian Music Hall in the courtyard of Arnold's Bar & Grill to benefit the League of Cincinnati Theatres.

The show will include songs from The Mystery of Edwin Drood (which plays Feb. 26-March 7 at CCM on the University of Cincinnati campus), a sneak preview of the senior showcase that plays New York in April, and a sing-along including some Victorian ditties.

High schoolers on a performance track and their parents won't want to miss the Q&A with the CCM ensemble, who will talk about professional training and career dreams.

Footlights is the Enquirer's series of one-of-a-kind events that invites you behind-the-scenes to discover local theaters while spotlighting downtown restaurants.

Tickets are $30 (show only) and tax deductible. Doors open at 4 p.m. for a 4:30 p.m. performance. Arnold's is located at 210 E. Eighth St. Call the restaurant at 421-6234 for reservations. You will be asked to hold your reservation with a credit card.

Information: Jackie Demaline at 768-8530.
