Ode to Chocolate Cabaret Planned

Performance Precedes Great Chocolate Train Festival

(Hamilton, NY – Sept. 2011) “Pardon the way that I drool, I’m sure I act like a fool. The thought of Crunch leaves me weak, because it’s chocolate I seek…”

Ode to Chocolate is a cabaret featuring song parodies that celebrate the delectable craving for sinfully delightful chocolate.

Ode to Chocolate takes place at the Musée du Chocolat, an eclectic museum exhibiting chocolate art. Visitors overwhelmed with exhibits break into various songs proclaiming their love of chocolate. Come to the Musée du Chocolat for an evening of great music, delicious chocolates and the tasteful art.

Patricia von Mechow and Maveret Umstead co-direct with Rosemary Jaytanie accompanying on the piano. The stars of the production are Clara Lantz, Jenni Larchar, Anthony Marris, Fred von Mechow, Steve Spiller, Carolyn Chryst, Sarah Hasegawa, Mason McDowell and Gwyneth Davies.

The Palace Theater in Hamilton is proud to produce this original show Friday, Sept. 23, at 7:30 p.m. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. so the audience can enjoy the delightful chocolaty treats early.

Tickets are available at $14 for adults (18+) and $10 for teens (14+).
