Christ Church to host comedy and cabaret show in February

Christ Church is hosting a show featuring talented singers and a local comedian.

Christ Church will be the place to be on Saturday February 15, as they will host the first ever “Comedy and Cabaret” show.


Singers will perform songs from shows like Oklahoma, Spring Awakening, Shrek the Musical, Phantom of the Opera and many more.

This group put on a show last year that was organized by Max Colvill. That show took place over the summer at Fort Thomas Coffee, and it was a great success. This time around Laura Petracco is the organizer of the show, and she has a new fresh group of singers. The group wanted to put on another performance this year, and are hoping that the cabaret could turn into an annual show.

Along with the songs, Fort Thomas’ very own Shelly Iker will perform her comedy routine. She is a local comedian who has performed for countless fundraisers in the Tri-State area. Her material should not be missed.

The cost of the event is $15 a person. There will also be a cash bar.

The doors open at 5:30 p.m., a dinner will be available at 6:30 and the show will begin at 7.

Anyone interested in attending are asked to RSVP by contacting Sherri Spaulding at Christ Church. She can be reached at 859-441-2565, or email her at admin@christchurchuccft.org.

Christ Church is located at 15 South Fort Thomas Avenue.
