Last seen charming audiences in Operatunity’s 2018 Because you Asked for It tour, baritone Stuart Coats returns for The Golden Era of Musicals, performing songs from the likes of Guys and Dolls, My Fair Lady, and Fiddler on the Roof.
Recognized for his vibrant and charismatic stage presence, Stuart has never entered any singing competitions, nor won any prizes.
