Suzanna Melendez and Acts of Charity present the hit Broadway musical Cabaret, benefiting Performing Arts Leadership Scholarships (P.A.L.S.) - the fundraising arm of Class Act Musical Theatre ( During the October 22 and 23 performances, Kris Jenner (Keeping Up with the Kardashians) will lead this talented ensemble as Fraulien Kost, in the musical that took over Broadway in the late 60's, about Berlin's steamy, colorful Kit Kat Klub, on the eve of Hitler's rise to power in Weimer Germany.

As performing arts budgets in schools around the country continue to diminish, Class Act P.A.L.S. provides scholarships to children with a passion for the performing arts but without the financial means to be part of a theatre program. This non-profit organization relies on ticket sales and charitable donations to be able to stage productions that pair talented teens with brilliant working professional actors.

To help celebrate the company's first performance, join on-air radio personality Lisa Foxx (Star 101.3-SF, 104.3MYfm-LA & Star 941 San Diego) on Friday, October 22 at 5:30pm as she hosts a pre-show "Show-Tune" karaoke party. Food will be made available during the pre-show festivities by Jose O'Malley's American & Mexican Cuisine food truck. This imaginative food truck not only supplies delicious cuisine, but additionally offers themed nights, including hula-hoop contests, face painting for kids, standup comedy, a nightly light show and the chance to "Sing For Your Supper."

Shows will be performed on October 22-24 @ 7pm, and November 5-7 @ 7pm. Tickets for Cabaret range from $25 - $100 and are available to purchase online HERE or by calling (818) 703-6364. The Class Act Musical Theatre is located at 5345 Wilhelmina Ave., Woodland Hills, California.
