Originally built in 1940 to house vaudeville acts and talkies, the historic Cameo Theatre delights audiences with distinctive plays and an Egyptian art-deco interior. The second-annual Flamenco Fest welcomes patrons to sample the arts of traditional, progressive, and antigravity flamenco dance. “Pasos y Pasiones” showcases the duet and trio dancing chops of the San Antonio Department of Parks and Recreation’s Fandango company. Developed through workshops and training montages with seasoned instructors from Spain, the show's dancers—including talented local Claudia Trevino—flourish footwork to aural warblings from two internationally experienced cantaores. VIP ticket and VIP festival-pass holders get priority seating and their own round of applause in front-left, front-center, front-right, and center-middle sections, and VIP festival-pass holders can attend pre- and post-show fetes and private parties. At pre-shows, guests are treated to paella and sangria, and at post-shows, teeth applaud an encore of sweet bites and flavored coffees.
"Fascinating Rhythm!" titillates ears through cabaret-style performances of famous songs by George and Ira Gershwin. Employing the talents of the Allegro Stage Company, co-directors Tom Masinter and Tim Hedgepeth populate Cameo Theatre's stage with performances from six local musical talents and all three existing musical notes. The show's song roster revels in the gilded history and more awkward teens years of Broadway and Hollywood, greeting ears to elegant renditions of Gershwin classics such as "The Man I Love," "I Got Rhythm!," and "Strike Up the Band." Seating is first-come, first-served and valid for all seats.
