Cast and Crew are proud to have dedicated the final two shows to the memory of Lynn L. Neiswander.

This is a brief video slideshow (with a few movie clips) of our recent musical Red Hot & Cole The Connection: "How people really want to celebrate love" Sun-Gazette: "Cheerful and clever, the production represents a nice reprieve from winter's chill." ShowBiz Radio: "The singing was great! Channel 69: captures the spirit of the 20’s and 30’s like the old movies."

He's "throwing a ball tonight" — and you're all invited, to a "swellegant" theatrical party spanning the life of Broadway's greatest wit, the irrepressible Cole Porter.

A scintillating mix of biography and song, Red Hot & Cole celebrates the great American songwriter who brought style, elegance and sophistication to the stages and soundstages of Broadway and Hollywood, delighting the world with his devilishly clever rhymes, fresh and unexpected melodies and sassy, sexy sensibility.

“Red Hot & Cole” bubbles with songs that have become international standards, from such classic shows and movies as “Anything Goes,” “Kiss Me Kate,” “High Society” and “Can-Can” among others. It traces Porter’s life from his childhood in Indiana to the stages and penthouses of New York, London, Paris and Venice.

It’s a champagne tribute to a glittering age gone by, and the man and talent who was Cole Porter.

The sold out performance on Sunday, January 27, benefits Brian's 5K, a fund established last year to provide assistance to Brian Anderson, a recent graduate of McLean High who was very seriously injured in a diving accident and has required extensive medical care. MCP is pleased to donote 25% of the receipts from this performance to the fund.
