Happy Times! a tribute to Danny Kaye

This acclaimed cabaret premiered at The Winter Park Playhouse, and has since toured regional theatres, cabaret venues, and retirement homes all over Florida. Come hear Wesley tackle the famous songs of Mr. Kaye - such as, "Anatole of Paris", "Minnie the Moocher", "Tchaikovsky", "Happy Times", and many more - while giving us unique insights into this famous performer's life and career.

Danny Kaye's classic film credits include, "The Court Jester," "Hans Christian Andersen," "White Christmas," "The Kid From Brooklyn," "The Inspector General," "Up in Arms," and "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," among many others. Not to mention the stage musicals, "Lady in the Dark" and "Two By Two." Along with his critically acclaimed star turns in "The Danny Kaye Show" on radio and television, and the countless one-man-shows from Broadway to the West End.

Come on down, lounge in the lobby, and you'll find your HAPPY TIMES!

Wesley Slade first stepped on stage in his home state, Mississippi, at the age of five, and he's never looked back. Wesley is certainly no stranger to the Florida stage. Audiences in The Villages may remember him from "Life Could Be a Dream" last season, with Victory Productions at The Studio Theatre. Other regional theatre credits include shows with Mad Cow Theatre, Maltz Jupiter Theatre (formally known as The Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre), Palm Beach Dramaworks, The Garden Theatre, Gable Stage, American Stage, Theatre Zone, The Wick Theatre & Costume Museum, The Orlando Rep, MNM Theatre Company, Titusville Playhouse, The IceHouse Theatre, Bay Street Players, Orlando Fringe, and more. He can be seen regularly on stage at Sleuth's Mystery Dinner Theatre, Universal Studios, and Walt Disney World. Wesley is a proud member of Actor's Equity, and an accomplished voice over artist and puppeteer. He has been nominated for/won several awards for his performances, including a Carbonell Award, Broadway World Awards, a Miami New Times Award, and was named "Versatile All-Star of the Year" by the Orlando Sentinel.
