ABOUT THE SHOW
An original cabaret inspired by Jim Henson and The Muppets. This self-referential style of variety-sketch comedy combined with classic songs will be a delight for the entire family, especially if you are a Muppets aficionado.
The Muppet Cabaret is based on an original cabaret conceived by Edward Juvier for the Forestburgh Playhouse in the summer of 2008.
So what exactly is this show?
An hour-long blend of your favorite songs and comedy sketches. "Rubber Duckie" "Rainbow Connection" And so many more! Totally PG fun for everyone.
Are there actual muppets?
No, but there are some great actors and singers embodying the beloved characters from the Muppet catalogue.
Director & Choreographer
Jessica (she/her) is so excited to be back at Pendragon after playing Theresa in last summer's production of Circle Mirror Transformation (BWW nominee for 'Best Actor'). She originated the role of "Miss Jessica" in The Muppet Cabaret, and is looking forward to directing and choreographing it here in the Adirondacks. Favorites include: The Phantom of the Opera (North American Tour), My Fair Lady (Eliza Doolittle), Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), The Sound of Music (Maria Rainer), and Avenue Q (Kate/Lucy, Regional Premiere). She has also been seen in concert at Joe's Pub, 54 Below, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bristol Riverside Theatre, and Forestburgh Playhouse. Originally from Plano, TX, she now resides in Connecticut. BFA: NYU (CAP21). @jessicawagner
Hawkins (he/him) is thrilled and honored to be music directing and playing for The Muppet Cabaret at Pendragon Theatre. This is his first time music directing for a show and is grateful to his talented cast and director for making this process such a fun experience. He graduated from the American Music and Dramatic Academy in 2017 and studied musical theater performance. He has since pivoted into the music side of theater. He performed at the New York Renaissance Faire, and Kingdom Faire. His latest production was Pride and Prejudice at Chester Theatre, NJ as Mr. Collins. He was just a part of Pendragon's production of The Rocky Horror Show as conductor/keys. The Muppets hold a special place in his heart, and cannot wait to bring the joy of the Muppets to our audience.
