July 23, 2013 – Columbia, MD – Wendy Baird’s cabaret “Stumbling On Happiness II” will be presented at Red Branch Theatre Company as the third evening in its four-part summer cabaret series. There are touching songs of love and loss, songs that transform our mood in an instant, songs that make us smile and those we swear shaped the people that we have become. Wendy Baird will stumble on happiness by sharing some of her favorite standards, contemporary show tunes, and light-hearted romps. It will be a fun evening of song and patter, poignancy and humor sure to entertain, provoke and inspire. Brad Hunter will join her on piano, Al Hannagan on guitar, as well as some other very special musical guests yet to be announced.

Wendy Baird has been singing on the musical theatre stage, in the studio, and with big bands and orchestras for more than 20 years. She made her Red Branch Theatre Company debut last year as Diana in the Maryland premiere of Next to Normal. Other recent stage roles include Marmee March in Little Women, Rona in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and Eleanor in One Red Flower. Wendy has been a featured performer with the Maryland Arts Festival, the Allentown Symphony Orchestra, Shippensburg Festival Choir, Bobby Baird’s Dixieland Jazz Band, various cabarets and showcases, and on Billy B’s Energy and Me educational CD. Outside of her various performing credits, Wendy is president of Insight180, a brand consulting and design firm in Ellicott City.

Local restaurant Iron Bridge Wine Company has partnered with Red Branch Theatre Company for the August 24th event. The favorite of local foodies and wine aficionados alike will offer food and wine pairings for purchase. The doors will open 45 minutes prior to show time to give patrons the opportunity to purchase the fine food and beverages offered before the performance begins.
