I
t was a night of slap-stick, lap
dancing, music and passion as
the Canyon Theatre Guild pre-
sented its fifth annual Cabaret
with the theme of “Club
Copacabana” at the CTG
Theater in Newhall.
Guests soon found themselves
celebrating -- with tables wait-
ing -- to the tune of dozens of
talented torch singers and
dancers ina sizzling evening
that raised more than $10,000
for the theater’s capital cam-
paign improvements.

Cabaret”

TimBen Boydston, CTG
Director of Operations, said all
of the funds will go toward the
building of a new parking lot
and an adjoining atrium patio
area.
The community theater is cele-
brating 32 years in the SCV as
a place for residents and fami-
lies to become involved in the-
ater -- as performers, crew and
audience.
The signature performance of
the evening was offered by the
“Bawdy Broads.” Looking
fetching in dangling tassel
pasties, complete with pink
fuzzy hearts and shiny steel
bust ornaments, the not so
ingenue gals garnered plenty of
cat calls as they shook their
booties during the most talked
about act of the show.
Included in the lineup were
Doreen Barsky, Mo Davis,
Patti Finley, Marla Khayat,
Marsha McLean, Carol Rock,
Gay McCreary, and Laurie
Morgan, with choreography
by Melanie Kimball.
The Bawdiest Broad of all,
Carmen Sarro -- who danced
her last dance in the 2003 “Le
Cabaret” -- was no doubt smil-
ing in heaven at the outlandish
antics of her hottie bawdy sis-
ters.
Dorothy Loyd was the first of
many solo acts to perform.
Reminiscent of Peggy Lee,
Loyd charmed the audience
with her own rendition of the
romantic classic, “I Only Have
Eyes For You.” (click for song)

As a perfect complement to
Loyd’s romantic theme, Jim
Robinson took to the stage
with his jazzy version of “I’ve
Got the World on a String.”
Mixing the carefree manner of
Frank Sinatra with a pinch of
Steve Lawrence, Robinson
proved to be a real lady
charmer, decked out to the
nines in his classic white tuxe-
do.
