If you want to chase away the “winter blahs” and warm up your Valentine’s Day Weekend, you’ll want to make certain you are in attendance when the Sul­livan County Dramatic Workshop serves up a heaping helping of music and desserts, sure to sat­isfy everyone, regardless of their musical taste.

The Valentine’s Cabaret is presented in the style of 1930s and ‘40s Jazz Clubs, but the music to be presented is from a broad variety of periods and musical styles, and each singer brings his or her own unique flair. Per­formances are Friday and Saturday, February 10 and 11 at 8:00 PM, and Sun­day, February 12 at 2:00 PM at the Sullivan Coun­ty Museum, Art and Cul­tural Center at 265 Main Street in Hurleyville. Ad­mission is $10 per person, and includes desserts and coffee.

The production’s di­rector, Jim Schmidt of Hurleyville, has ably as­sembled a talented group of singers who will be accompanied by the ver­satile Leon Hilfstein of Hurleyville on pia­no. Beautiful ballads and bawdy, belting numbers will make for a full eve­ning or afternoon of en­tertainment. Featured per­formers include Shawn Bailey of Mileses, Karen Beals of Monroe, Mary Burkart of Ellenville, Renata Daria of Rock Hill, Terri Hall of Rock Hill, Tom Masciopinto of Monticello, Teri Paris of Parksville, Ellen Pavloff of Kerhonkson, Mekayla Perneszi of Hurleyville, Amber Schmidt of Hur­leyville, Lori Schneider of Hurleyville, Kim Sch­neeberger of Ellenville, Heather Strauss of Glen Wild, and Stephanie Wat­son of Liberty.

Whether you’ve got a honey with whom you are celebrating Valen­tine’s Day, you’re flying solo this year, or you’re just looking for a fun time out with friends, come in out of the cold for warm music and delectable desserts!
