Join Matt Beyer for Another Night of Music and Laughter At RTP
Ice blue eyes, a radiant smile, and a voice as smooth as silk…no, I’m not talking about Sinatra.
It’s Richmond vocalist Matt Beyer, who will be performing his one man show “Yesterday Once More” at the Richmond Triangle Players Theatre this coming Monday and Tuesday, June 16th & 17th at 8:00pm.
It will be a night of stories and songs, exploring Pop/Rock top 40, Broadway, and TV hits from the 70s. Beyer decided to focus on the 1970s for this production after receiving such an overwhelming positive response to the 70s inspired portion of his last show, Pure Imagination.
“I want to make people happy,” Beyer said, so he’s taken care to craft his set list according to his audiences’ feedback. After an exuberant reaction to his “Manilow Medley” he made sure he’s got some of Barry’s tunes tucked in the show.
Beyer has been entertaining audiences on the east coast for more than two decades. Working with theatre groups in his home state of Pennsylvania, amusement parks like Kings Dominion, and performing for several years on multiple cruise ships.
Locally he has worked and toured with Theatre 4, Barksdale Theatre, Richmond Triangle Players, and The Firehouse Theatre Project among others. At Firehouse, Beyer got to meet and work with Leilani Giles on productions of Reefer Madness and Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Giles is the Music Director for this current production, and is working with Matt, percussionist Bentley Cobb, and guitarist Joe Martinez on arrangements and show format for Yesterday Once More.
Sound Direction is integral for this show’s execution, and while Beyer has said he is always “most comfortable with a mic in his hand,” he’s even more relaxed knowing his friend and colleague, Michael Bodine will be making his way down from Maryland to direct sound.
And certainly with such a wonderful and intimate environment at RTP, you know every seat will be the best seat in the house.
Michael Jarett is the Lighting Designer, helping Beyer and his accompanying musicians incorporate and utilize the stage set for “Cabaret”, which is the standing show currently at RTP.
Beyer has chosen songs he fondly remembers performing by himself in his basement as a kid, and I’m looking forward to that kid beaming through on stage! It’s gonna be an evening packed with love, laughter, and some undeniably fabulous music, and if I were you, I’d brush up on some 70s tunes, because I’ve got a feeling there’s gonna be a sing along. See you there!
Tickets can be purchased through RTP’s website.
