OSSINING, N.Y. -- A group of Ossining High School students trying to make their way to Scotland to perform in the world's largest arts festival is getting a little help from mom.
The Mom Cabaret is to feature seven mothers along with an "honorary mom" named Steve, according to event organizers. All are to sing songs about motherhood.
Entrance to the 8 p.m., Nov. 6 show at Theater O costs $50 and includes wine. All proceeds will go toward the travel costs of the students, organizers said.
The show will feature Shami Arslanian, Anne Carpenter, Aisling Dono, Robin Goldberg, Julie Griffin and Kate Mathews. The ladies will be joined by Steve Weisbart.
Ossining High School's theater program is one of 50 to be selected to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which is scheduled to run for more than three weeks in August 2016. More than 2,500 theater programs from across the world were nominated for the honor, organizers said.
“I have so much respect for the cultural arts programs in the Ossining Schools," said Jessica Irons, artistic director of Theater O. "I am proud to live in a place that values the arts, and particularly the theater."
