Take a Chance on CHAWbaret!

April 12, 2013

“Take A Chance On Me!” is the tenth installment in the CHAWbaret series, an annual cabaret benefit for the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) and their mission of building community through the arts.  This year’s installment promises to be a fun-packed evening of standards, pop songs, and show tunes about taking chances, gambling, and the risks we all take just by getting out of bed…or even by NOT getting out of bed!  Featuring nine fantastic singers and even a tap dance troupe, you will even hear an original song performed by the songwriter!

I started the CHAWbaret series (which began in the spring of 2007) because I thought that it would be a fun way for primarily those of us who sang in the summer Gilbert and Sullivan productions to raise money for CHAW while doing something that we loved to do: performing really fun music! I thought “there are lots of ways to raise money, but wouldn’t you rather do it by SINGING????”  Since the inception of the CHAWbaret series, the cast has expanded to include lots of other great performers as well.

CHAWbaret 10 performances are Friday, April 19, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Purchasing tickets early will not only get you a better price, it will assure you a seat on this fantastic ride!  You can get yours by emailing or by calling CHAW at (202) 547-6839.  For more information, visit
