Our Mission

Brief Cameo Productions, Inc. produces high-quality concert stagings of classic and under-represented works of Musical Theater, showcases superior local and regional talent, and offers audiences artistic and cultural enrichment through live performance.

Brief Cameo Productions, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Our Name

When we set out to do our first show, we knew that it was going to be a very quick process (read: one week). So Brief seemed very appropriate.

Cameo, as a literary device, describes a piece that brings into delicate or sharp relief the character of a person, place, or event. We hope that's what our stories do for our audiences.

And on top of all that, Jim's a big Muppets fan. (Watch the clip.)
