Carole Demas to Celebrate 81st Birthday With THIS IS THE TIME

Thursday, May 6, 2021- Carole Demas is turning 81 years young on May 26, 2021, and will be singing her gratitude, celebrating this milestone virtually, with friends, family, and fans, in her upcoming Live From Skylight Run performance, THIS IS THE TIME, live-streaming at 7:30 EDT, May 14th, and on-demand.

Unstoppable throughout her 60+ year career as a Broadway performer, TV actor and celebrity, cabaret/concert singer, and events speaker, she appreciates the opportunities as well as the tough lessons that have come her way in life. Her growing audiences return each month to enjoy these virtual concerts, remembering her as a beloved co-star of TV's most successful regional show for children, The Magic Garden, her creation of the seminal role of Sandy in Broadway's original GREASE, Genevieve in Stephen Schwartz's THE BAKER'S WIFE and her major Off-Broadway and TV Guest Star roles in nighttime dramas and daytime soaps. Carole has been performing for decades on stages far and wide and lately, from her own home studio just north of NYC. Her loyal following spends a delightful, memorable hour, comfortable in their own homes while joining Carole in hers.

"We have been producing LIVE FROM SKYLIGHT RUN monthly since Broadway and other venues shut down", Carole says, "and every month I am surprised and thankful for all the viewers who are out there somewhere, beyond my living room. Not seeing their faces, hearing them laugh or applaud, I can still feel them near me. They are the positive energy we need. Anything is possible when passion and music bring us together. It is especially gratifying to be able to work with a first-rate sound and video system in this warm, inspiring setting. And of course Ian Herman, the best Music Director one could ask for, is with me. One unexpected thing about growing older is that it has become possible to work with a dear friend and powerful collaborator for more than 40 years, growing as time goes by."

Carole and Ian weave their blend of music and theater, with personal energy and intimacy, memorable songs and stories, spanning decades, as Carole's indelible mark continues. This show features some of her favorites- a wide variety of music that has touched her life and yours, from Broadway, Great American Song Book, folk, pop, and classic rock, including, this time, Billy Joel, The Beatles, Rodgers & Hart, Jones & Schmidt, James Taylor, Judy Collins, and others.
