An Afternoon with Charles Keating & Family

Join us for a glorious evening  of music, mirth, poetry and just plain fun, all performed by an extended family of artists and benefitting the Wilton Library! We’ll throw in a wine and cheese reception as well!

We’ll start with a heralded Shakespearian actor with a delightful sense for music and words; with a head full of a lifelong collection of songs, poetry, verse and other diddies and a repertoire that goes from Dylan Thomas to the Beatles. Charles Keating has lived at least the equivalent of three normal lives and you might recognize him from one of his many TV appearances: Brideshead Revisited, Sex and the City, programs for Nova and PBS or from his movie appearances ranging from The Bodyguard to Deuce Bigalow. He won an Emmy for his work on Another World and does readings for NPR. He has performed at the Kennedy Arts Center, The Roundabout Theater, The Manhattan Theatre Club and Lincoln Center. You might even catch him as a visiting actor teaching Shakespeare at Trinity College.

Then we’ll add a wife with a career of her own, writing and recording children’s songs with a voice like an angel.

Then we’ll sprinkle in two powerfully musical sons and Dave Shuford, who have had their own rock band in New York, and play a series of instruments including the most wonderful classic guitar and you have Beautiful Dreamer.


Listening to this group is like going through an old attic trunk, never knowing what you might find next.  In this case, you have this extraordinary patchwork quilt of music and verse that just seems to slow in the wind.


Join us on July 29th from 3 to 5 PM for our Afternoon Cabaret with Charles Keating & Family – a performance worthy of a NYC stage.

We are lucky to have the Keatings as neighbors – neighbors who love libraries! Buy your tickets today for this “not to miss” performance that benefits the Library. We are expecting a large crowd – so don’t miss out – reserve today! Tickets are $25 each and all proceeds will benefit the Wilton Library.
