Musical theater vocalist Lynne McGhee is back with “Dead Girls, the Musical” a musical tribute to iconic pop queens who have left us at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 22, at the Denmark Arts Center. Vocalist/comedienne Lynne McGhee and the Dead Girls Band salute divas from the great beyond: Patsy Cline, Cass Elliot, Karen Carpenter, Olivia Newton John, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston and more. Written & performed by Lynne McGhee. Directed by Brian P. Allen of Good Theatre in Portland. Musical Direction by Carmine Terracciano.

What McGhee loves most about performing is the opportunity to create something with an audience, rather than for an audience. Her vision is to use interactive theater, humor and other art modalities to help people break through ways of thinking that keep them from attaining their goals. Her last show at Denmark Arts Center was “Back to the Drawing Board,” a show which focused on themes that limit personal empowerment. “Dead Girls, the Musical” is a comical way of saluting some of our most beloved female singers while reminding ourselves life is short so live it your way.

McGhee’s most recent production, “Killer Comfort,” was produced by Good Theater at The Hill Arts in Portland last winter. She has performed throughout New York and New England with Maine State Music Theater, Portland Stage Company, Good Theater, The Weathervane Theater, Actor’s Theater of Maine, the Children’s Theater of Maine and various regional theaters. She enjoys voice over work and was on air radio talent for WPOR’s morning drive shows. She also produced and performed cabaret shows at The Eastland Park Hotel as well as Danny’s Skylight Room, Don’t Tell Mama and the Rainbow Room in NYC. She has acted in film and television both locally and nationally appearing in “30 Rock,” “I Think I Love My Wife,” “Baby Mama,” “True North,” “The Fay-Lindsay Jones Story” and more.

McGhee is a member of Actors Equity Association, SAG-AFTRA, the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs and BACA (Boston Association of Cabaret.) She holds a BA in Theater and has certifications in personal development coaching from the Coaches Training Institute and expressive arts from New York Expressive Arts as well as Animal Assisted Intervention from Oakland University. McGhee also continues to write and act for film, on stage and behind the mic doing voice over work. She has private expressive arts coaching clients and enjoys public speaking engagements. She is passionate about volunteering and currently helps at The Travis Mills Foundation. She lives in Harpswell with her husband Mark and spoiled pups Russell-Walker and Callie.
