When American novelist Cliff Bradshaw (Michael Risio) lands in Berlin, his quest for book material leads him to the infamous Kit Kat Club, a den of intrigue and allure. Here, he encounters the enigmatic Sally Bowles (Amber McCarthy), an English cabaret performer, whose confidence and charm weave into Cliff's life in unexpected ways. As their story unfolds amidst a cast of compelling characters like Frau Schneider (Stephany Hitchcock), the pragmatic landlady, and Herr Schultz (Andy Crispell), a Jewish fruit vendor, Cabaret elevates itself from mere entertainment to a poignant commentary on the human condition.

As the world of the Club spins with vivacity and decadence, the shadow of the Nazi party's rise looms over Berlin. Presiding over the spectacle is the Emcee (Mary Kate Barnett), whose musical interludes offer both a critique and a mirror to the chaos that ensues. Cabaret is not merely a tale of love and life in pre-war Germany; it is a solemn reminder of the importance of action and the costs of indifference.

The Creative Team and Cast:

Cabaret is a musical with a book by Joe Masteroff, music by John Kander, and lyrics by Fred Ebb. This production is directed with a deft hand by Peter Risafi, and brought to life with the dynamic musical direction of Paul and JoAnne Schubert, as well as intoxicating choreography by Jordan Stroly.
