    In the return of a summer tradition, Boothbay Harbor’s Kevin Kiley will once again settle in at the Opera House piano on Saturday, June 18 for an evening of music from the great shows of Broadway and the music of the American songbook. Vocalists for the concert include veterans from the local, Maine and New York stage and all have worked with Kevin over the decades.

    “It’s an evening of bringing wonderfully talent theater friends together,” says Kevin, “for the enjoyment of the Opera House audience.”

    Stars of the popular Opera House holiday concerts including John Adams, Devin Dukes, and Lynne Mcghee will join Kevin on stage. He will also accompany Abbey Hutchins, who Kevin shared “played Little Red Riding Hood in Heartwood Theater’s ‘Into the Woods’ brilliantly!”

    Jen McLeod and Kevin crossed paths at Boothbay Harbor’s Carousel Music Theater and she’s now a working soprano in Portland. Also joining the troupe for the evening is cabaret singer Jen Caryn.

    Scott McGowan who was last seen by Maine audiences when he performed in the Opera House’s still-talked –about production of “Forever Plaid,” has worked for more than 30 years as a professional actor and a company member of Vivid Stage in Summit, NJ.

    Veteran Broadway performer Leah Hocking’s credits include “All Shook Up,” “The Last Ship,” “Billy Elliot,” “Hairspray,” “Jekyll and Hyde,” “Grease,” and “Guys and Dolls.” She recently recorded the cast album for “Penelope.”
