What is the Gypsy Robe:
An old Broadway tradition, a “Gypsy” is a member of the dancing and singing chorus of a musical who moves from one show to the next, much like gypsies of old. A robe is awarded to a member of the chorus, which then becomes the “good luck” charm of the show. The winner adds a piece of memorabilia from their show to the robe, and then it is passed on to the next production.

At Cabrillo Stage the Robe is traditionally awarded to a chorus member, and once in awhile to a unique lead, who exemplifies the spirit of Cabrillo Stage through dedication and commitment to the production. The Robe selection process, chosen by the director and producer, also takes into consideration someone who has the greatest number of Cabrillo Stage credits in the cast. The winner, awarded on opening night, must wear the Robe and bless the stage, the scenery, the props and all the cast members before each performance in order to bring the production luck.
