The Sherman Playhouse will be producing Cabaret opening with a half price preview Thursday Sept. 19 and running regular performances Sept. 20, 21, 27, 28, 29 (Matinee) Oct. 4, 5, 6 (Matinee) 11, and 12. Curtain opens at 8 for evening performances and 2 pm for matinees.

The plot takes place in a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. With the Emcee's bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include "Willkommen," "Cabaret," "Don't Tell Mama" and "Two Ladies." Book by Joe Masteroff; Based on the play by John Van Druten & Stories by Christopher Isherwood; Music By John Kander; Lyrics by Fred Ebb
