Winter Park Playhouse Presents SIDE BY SIDE: A TRIBUTE TO STEVE LAWRENCE & EYDIE GORME
Natalie Cordone and Shawn Kilgore are a dynamic singing duo that has performed to critical acclaim all over the nation. They met while performing in The Winter Park Playhouse production of Baby in 2012 and quickly became friends who formed a popular singing duo producing cabaret-style shows. The two entertainers are seasoned musical theatre actors, each with extensive professional credits.
Ms. Cordone has performed Off-Broadway, toured in Europe, and is a steady cabaret performer nationally including performing in both Las Vegas and at the iconic NYC cabaret spot Don't Tell Mama. She has appeared locally as a regular in both the Mainstage and Spotlight Cabaret Series at The Winter Park Playhouse, performed with the Orlando Opera and the Orlando Philharmonic, and recently made her TV debut appearing on MTV's new half-hour comedy The Inbetweeners.
Mr. Kilgore headlined as Billy Bigelow in the Orlando Philharmonic production of Carousel, has appeared in numerous Winter Park Playhouse productions including an upcoming role as "El Gallo" in the Playhouse production of The Fantasticks in May and June, and has toured in The Jazz Singer, A Stoop on Orchard Street and SUDS. He can be seen locally as a regular performer at Universal Studios. Shawn can also be heard on the national cast recording of the musical Nunsense A-Men and travels nationally with Natalie for their cabaret and concert events.
Natalie and Shawn have recently returned from Las Vegas where they performed Side By Side: A Tribute to Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme and are appearing for the one-night-only event to support the theatre where they met.
"We will always have a special place in our heart for The Winter Park Playhouse," confirms Natalie Cordone, "and we hope everyone will join us March 4 for a great evening out benefitting this wonderful theatre!"

So get your tickets early for this exciting event!" states Roy Alan, Artistic Director of The Winter Park Playhouse.
