COLLIDE returns with its world premier Broadway-style dance musical, “The Belmont Hotel“. The story centers on hotel owner Frank Dougherty’s determination to provide for his family during the 1920’s Prohibition Era. When Frank is faced with the prospect of having to close the hotel doors, he is forced to make a decision that can put his life, and that of his family, in great danger.

The Belmont Hotel” is performed in the narrative dance style of Broadway’s Tony Award Winning “Movin’ Out” and features live vocals by Twin Cities Jazz veteran Katie Gearty and upcoming recording artist Cameron Wright. The production, choreographed and directed by Regina Peluso, features the dance talents of Jeff Quast, Dora Dolphin, Renee Guittar, Patrick Jeffrey and Elander Rosser and will be complimented by a talented cast of ensemble dancers, actors, and musicians.

COLLIDE’s debut performance showcased its original dance musical “Lot of Living To Do”. We thank the more than 500 patrons who attended the four day run. You made COLLIDE’s debut performance a delightful success. Read what our audience had to say about “Lot of Living to Do“:

- “One of the best dance performances I’ve seen in ages”.  

- “It was a brilliant combination of actors, dancers and jazz performers not to be missed!” 

- “Three piece jazz ensemble, 2 extremely talented vocalists, and a cast of top-notch dancers who at times made my jaw drop“ 

Inspired by famed St. Paul city madam, Nina Crawford, “Lot of Living to Do” portrayed the struggles and hopes of three young women who were thrown into a life of hardship during the 1930′s. 

The performance featured the live vocals of Katie Gearty and Jared Oxborough and the dance talents of Lauren Anderson, Galen Higgins, Renee Guittar, Kelly Adams and Jeff Quast. And complemented by a talented ensemble of dancers, actors, and musicians. 

Professionally recorded CDs featuring our lead vocalist Katie Gearty are available for sale. For purchase, please contact us at info@collidetheatrical.org.
