Bucks County’s own, Tom Orr, has been singing professionally for over 40 years in theatres, clubs, and cabarets. Anita Donovan of the Trenton Times called him an area favorite known especially for his terrific baritone voice. Now he’s back, this time with award winning Broadway music director, Gary Adler.
Tom Orr first got paid for singing in Philadelphia dinner theatres, where he first used the motto, “Sing For Your Supper.” Since then he’s been an actor, singer, director, producer and cabaret artist from Philadelphia to New York & Atlantic City. He has appeared at the Claridge Hotel-Casino, the Kimmel Center, the Media Theatre, the Montgomery Theatre, the Walnut Street Theatre, the Arden Theatre, the Surflight Theatre, the Bucks County Playhouse, and the Bristol Riverside Theatre, where he did several shows with Gary. Tom’s favorite roles include Harold Nichols in The Full Monty, Frank Butler in Annie Get Your Gun, Bill Austin in Mamma Mia!, King Arthur in Camelot; as well as Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Sherlock Holmes, and Mack the Knife. Tom has sung Standards, Broadway, Folk, Rock, Jazz, Country, Blues and Operetta, and as host of the Bucks County Cabaret, “eclectic” was the word.
