The Georgia Military College Fine Arts program held its fall performance, “A 1950s Cabaret,” on Thursday, Oct. 7. This performance marks only the second live show since the start of the pandemic in 2020. The free event packed the Goldstein Center for Performing Arts with theatre lovers from around the community.
The GMC Fine Arts program has produced cabaret events featuring songs from the Disney catalog for the past several years. This year’s cabaret song choices were inspired by the 1950s and were accompanied by a compelling live band under the direction of GMC alumnus Josh Brown.
Performers for the “1950s Cabaret” came from a diverse group of participants. Student performers included commuter, cadet, and dual-enrollment students. In addition, several singers were GMC alumni and staff, along with community participants.
“I love that the GMC Fine Arts program draws performers from all aspects of the community,” said Jon Clark, director of “A 1950s Cabaret.” “It’s a pleasure to see such a diverse mix of people perform together. Milledgeville is a very talented city.”
The GMC Fine Arts program is run by GMC professor Amy Zipperer, and produces a number of performances throughout the year that the community has been able to enjoy. For more information and to see upcoming performances, visit the GMC Fine Arts Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/gmcjcfinearts.
