Skeleton Crew® Cabaret at The Ritz by Brad Shaw | Chris & Russ

Aah…Cabaret at The Ritz! This type of staging had never before been attempted, let alone executed, at The Ritz Nightclub in Roseville, Michigan. We wanted to make the 2,000 seat club feel more intimate so we thought: “how about bringing the audience up on stage with us?”

We ran the idea by our dear friend Connie Marshall, who happened to be events coordinator for the Palace of Auburn Hills and DTE Energy Music Theatre. She loved it and said she could help.

The next thing you know Connie had brought in a lovely assortment of artificial trees to augment the stage. We placed several cocktail tables and chairs about the stage and instructed the waitresses to come up on stage during our performance to serve the lucky patrons that received seats on stage. It was the most unique performance Skeleton Crew® had ever endeavored at The Ritz. A splendid time was had by all.
