Our Fabulous Variety Show (OFVS) was founded in 2010 by Anita Boyer and Kasia Klimiuk. What began as a one time performance has evolved into a professional theatrical troupe. In the fall of 2010, Anita convinced Kasia to run a half-marathon with her in sin city, Las Vegas. The run was partnered with the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) and each runner had to raiser over $3,000. After meeting several talented performers in Centerstage's performance of Cabaret that summer, these ladies decided to put on a variety show to raise the necessary funds. It was a smash hit and they raised over $3,000 at the show for the CCFA.

The following year they decided to do another show, A Charitable Cabaret, and then another, The Holiday Spectacular, and now 14 shows later, they produce at least 3 full scale production a year with small showcases in between. Production range from original stories inspired by classic tales such as Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and A Christmas Carol as well as smaller variety shows and cabaret shows that feature local talents. The company also recently received its non-profit status and is officially a 501(c)3 organization!

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to educate young performers that want to be professional artists in addition to donating the proceeds of each production to a local non-profit organization or our Performing Arts Scholarship fund. What this means, is that once we have covered the expenses of each theatrical production, we can then donate the profit to a community organization or our scholarship fund. We also take pride in providing a platform for professional performers to showcase their talents.


With contemporary music and references to very current events (including swipes at both Common Core and the front running Republican presidential candidate) this rendition of Alice is not only charming – it’s also smart and sassy with an edginess that will leave you saying, “Now this is the way to do it.”
