SINGER/CREATOR BIOS

Natalie Cordone and Shawn Kilgore are the singers, producers and creators of tonight’s show. Natalie & Shawn met seven years ago in Orlando when they were both cast in the Tony Award-winning musical Baby. After weeks of sharing beautiful harmonies and tons of laughter, they knew that they had something special. They began creating their own shows and delighting audiences around the country.

Between shows you can find Natalie and Shawn starring in musicals and as soloists with orchestras like the Orlando Philharmonic Symphony, the Colorado Symphony, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic and the San Antonio Symphony.  In their limited free time, they love relaxing with family and playing with their dogs.
