Two Tony-winning performers -- Sutton Foster and Betty Buckley -- will make separate concert appearances as part of the 2010-11 season of Reprise Theatre Company.

"An Evening With Sutton Foster" will play for one performance only on Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. Foster won a Tony for actress in a musical for "Thoroughly Modern Millie" in 2002. Her other Broadway credits include "Young Frankenstein," "Shrek the Musical" and the upcoming revival of "Anything Goes."

Foster recently performed her solo show of the same title at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in April. She will be in Orange County as well, performing Jan. 6-9, as part of the new season's cabaret series at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.

"Betty Buckley in Concert With Seth Rudetsky" is scheduled to run for one performance on Feb. 21 at 8 p.m. Buckley won a Tony for featured actress in a musical for "Cats" in 1983. 

Both Reprise performances will take place at UCLA's Freud Playhouse. 

In the past, Reprise has hosted solo concert performances by such other Broadway notables as Patti LuPone, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Kristin Chenoweth.

Reprise's 2010-11 season will include productions of "They're Playing Our Song," "Gigi" and "Kiss Me, Kate."
