If you missed the first two performances at S..., you’ll want to mark your calendar for the last in its entertainment series, September 19. 

Closing out the summer, this month’s program, “Crazy Rhythm, Fancy Feet,” features the talented dance duo of Bob Butryn and Eva Brothers. They will perform routines in swing, salsa, disco, Charleston, tap, clogging, and partner dances like the foxtrot and waltz. 

Guests will dine on a delightful spread from Seabrook’s chefs and have the opportunity to tour the community and model apartment homes. 

Broadway ballads and witty women

The July 25 event, “Broadway and Beyond,” featured a trio of Broadway musicians who starred as Christine in The Phantom of the Opera. They performed a variety of modern and classic Broadway tunes to a zealous crowd. 

Visitors enjoyed lunch prepared by Seabrook’s own chefs. The summer fare included shrimp skewers and jerk chicken, hamburgers and hotdogs, mozzarella and tomato salad, fresh watermelon, and brownies a la mode. 

At the August 15 event, “Tea for Three: Lady Bird, Pat, and Betty,” Emmy-award-winning actress Elaine Bromka portrayed three American first ladies in a witty and moving one-woman play. 

Guests dined on a delicious surf-and-turf lunch of lobster and filet mignon. 

Taste of Seabrook

“So far this series has been a huge success.  I know the September program will be just as entertaining as the first two—definitely one not to miss,” says Sales Director Julie Clary. 

Seabrook has opened the series up to priority list members and others who have shown interest in the community—or those who just want to enjoy amazing talent close to home.

“This is exactly the type of entertainment our residents get to enjoy here at Seabrook all the time,” she adds, “so it’s nice to open it up to others.” 

Seabrook’s on-site performance center frequently hosts professional acts as well as speakers, lecturers, movies, and the community’s own Seabrook Performers, a playacting group that produces at least two shows a year.
