3:42 PM 2007

Upright Cabaret put on a festive show June 22 to end their season at West Hollywood's La Boheme Restaurant, welcoming performers from the Los Angeles sit-down production of the Broadway blockbuster Wicked as well as from Jersey Boys, currently on its first national tour stop at the nearby Ahmanson Theatre.

Producers Shane Scheel and Chris Isaacson celebrated music director Trapper Felides' 27th birthday at the Friday bash, while also welcoming performances from Wicked's Jenna Leigh Green and Emily Rozek as well as Christopher Kale Jones (currently starring as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys in L.A.).  Other Upright favorites joined in on the fun including Audra Mae, Leslie Odom Jr., Alistair Tober and Bree Bruns.

With La Boheme closing for some remodeling, Upright will hit the road, locally that is, with shows pending around Los Angeles throughout the summer.  For an updated schedule, visit www.myspace.com/uprightcabaret or www.uprightcabaret.com.
