SARATOGA SPRINGS— The Local Actors Guild of Saratoga (LAGS) invites all to their inaugural Broadway Rewind benefit this Saturday, November 9 at 8 p.m. at The Saratoga Arts Center, 320 Broadway, Saratoga Springs.

Admission is $20 at the door. For that you get an evening of some of Saratoga’s most creative thespians taking on their favorite Broadway show tunes—except, they’ll be switching gender in each case. “Charles” Channing, “Roberta” Preston, you get the idea.  

Broadway Rewind is in the style of the famous “Broadway Backwards” benefit concert series in New York City. 
The cast of gender benders include Joy Peret, Andrea Burger, Marc Andrzejewski, Ann Miliken, Darlene Kelly, JJ Buechner, Christine Meglino, Jessica Byrnes Cheong, Chad Radock, Vivian Hwang, Kristal Crandall, Andrew Rycraft, Hollie Miller, Christine Meglino, Justin Newkirk, Matthew Peret, Dashira Cortes, Dawn Oesch  and Nik Gatzendorfer.
LAGS has been entertaining audiences since 2006. They have recently been producing larger musicals such as Avenue Q, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and Chicago, which was a complete sell-out smash. 

This benefit will help LAGS raise funds for a new sound system that includes stage and overhead microphones, which are needed to continue larger productions. 
They will also be announcing their 2014-2015 season programming.
