PORTLAND — Good Theater, the professional company in residence at the St. Lawrence Arts Center, will present its 11th edition of Broadway at Good Theater from Dec. 3-7. These annual fundraising concerts combine Broadway tunes with holiday favorites for a sensational musical event.

For the first time in its history, Broadway at Good Theater has a theme – a salute to the 1960s. All of the Broadway songs come from shows that opened on Broadway during that decade. Plus, all of the holiday music debuted during the 1960s as well.

This year’s Broadway guest stars are Aaron Ramey and Christopher A. Pecoraro. Ramey has been seen on Broadway in The Bridges of Madison County (last year’s Tony winner for Best Score), Curtains, Young Frankenstein and Thoroughly Modern Millie. He has also starred in many regional productions including productions of Miss Saigon, The Visit and 1776. Ramey will bring his big voice to such songs as “The Lees of Old Virginia,” “My Cup Runneth Over” from I Do! I Do! and “The Impossible Dream.”

Pecoraro is a Westbrook native who starred in last year’s edition of Broadway at Good Theater. He performed on Broadway as Chris in Miss Saigon, played Marius in Les Miz and was featured in Stephen Sondheim’s Passion. Pecoraro will wrap his warm vocals around “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” a medley of songs from The Fantasticks from his recently recorded CD, and “Who Can I Turn To” from Roar of the Greasepaint. He will join two of our female performers for a trio from Zorba.

Broadway at Good Theater will feature performers Kelly Caufield, Marie Dittmer, Jim Gaddis, Matt LaBerge, Jennifer Manzi MacLeod, Lynne McGhee, Jen Means, Halim Moldavor, Amy Roche, Benjamin Row, Marissa Sheltra, Jessica Thompson, Steve Underwood, and Michael Wood. Victoria Stubbs is the musical director/pianist/arranger. She is joined by John Lawson on bass and Bill Manning on percussion.
