Critically acclaimed and award nominated To Bee Productions presents the Arisha’s OK Cabaret: An Operatic Extravaganza, proudly supported by the Superbia Fund by Manchester Pride. Join Arisha Marsh as they hop across the pond to learn opera in the shiny of Oklahoma City, where the likes of Kristin Chenoweth trained. They battle auditions, acapella harmonies, and they finally find a space where they belong. Their life turns into a broadway fairytale, what could possibly go wrong?
March 12th 2020 the campus is ordered to shut down the next day, Friday the 13th, they run through campus finding everyone they love to tell them goodbye. Their life is completely uprooted, unhoused, they rely on their community for support. They stay in New Mexico with a friend, put in emergency housing to complete their studies, and eventually made it back to Manchester safe enough to sing the tale.
Arisha’s OK Cabaret: An Operatic Extravaganza is an autobiographical musical revue that incorporates a mix of aria, jazz standards, musical theatre and pop music to explore displacement and homelessness in times of crisis, found family and the strength of queer relationships.
