Enrollment is now open for the upcoming semester of performing arts classes at the Rose Miniaci Arts Education Center on the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale.

Beginning Jan. 24, classes in singing, dancing, acting and improv will be offered for children and adults of all ages, abilities and skill levels. 

Adult Cabaret offers an advanced vocal group setting where students continue to develop proper breathing, tone production and vocal expression in a class that ends in a cabaret performance. Adult Comedy Improv: Next Level offers extended scene work, generating scene ideas from openings and other long-form improv skills with students performing in a session-end showcase. Adult Musical Theater Singing, designed for adults who enjoy singing Broadway show tunes and want to improve vocal techniques, does not require previous singing experience and also concludes with a showcase. 

Tuition is $210 – 260 for the 11-week semester. For more information and to register, go to BrowardCenter.org/Classes.

The Show Must Go On

Tickets are now on sale for “Double Trouble,” the latest stage show featuring drag diva Miss Bouvèé and cabaret queen Jennifer McClain, Feb. 24 – 27 at the Center for Spiritual Living, 4849 N. Dixie Hwy. in Oakland Park. 

With a book by Robert Leleux and directed by Kalen Edean, “Double Trouble” is a story about two sisters, Mimi and Minnie Bouvèé, who haven’t spoken to each other in decades. After years of success in show business as kids, they pursue different lives — one as a wife, the other as a solo act.  

Now, Minnie Bouvèé finds her career on the fritz and Mimi isn't so happy in the ‘burbs. The death of their overbearing stage mother has forced them to reunite. As the funeral events unfold, a trip down memory lane results in laughter, show-stopping songs and the spark of sizzling sisterhood. The girls discover they are exactly what each other needs. 

Tickets start at $35 at MissBouvee.com.

COVID Casualties

The Maltz Jupiter Theater in Palm Beach County recently canceled its upcoming production of “Sweet Charity,” scheduled to open Feb. 19, not because of COVID cases among the cast or crew, but due to pandemic-related supply chain disruptions that delayed the completion of a $36 million expansion to the venue. The Maltz will still open its second planned show of the season, “I Hate Hamlet,” on Feb. 8 at the Benjamin School in Palm Beach Gardens, as originally planned.
