Dennis Clark has wasted no time in creating fresh ideas after beginning his new post as artistic director of the Ritz Theatre for the Tennessee Valley Art Association.
Clark’s first brainchild is a Christmas production titled The Most Wonderful Time: A Holiday Cabaret.
“Because a cabaret is a series of songs tied together with a theme, I was able to audition performers and create a show around their vocal strengths and talents,” Clark said. “It’s going to be an wonderful night filled with all types of holiday music and fun.”
Jacob Adams, Mikayla Camp, Lauren Carpenter and Joey Wright will be the featured performers for The Most Wonderful Time, and they will be accompanied on a grand piano by Tommy Quinn.
The cabaret series will be performed in the recently renovated space next door to the Ritz Theatre’s main stage. Clark said he wanted to take advantage of the Ritz Studio’s more intimate and contemporary vibe.
“It’s such an inviting space with a very hip atmosphere, I couldn’t wait to do something fun there,” Clark said.
