La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts and McCoy Rigby Entertainment present the third show of its 2017-2018 season (and the 40th anniversary of the iconic theatre) with CABARET, book by Joe Masteroff (based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood), music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb with musical direction by David O, choreography by Dana Solimando and directed by Larry Carpenter. Check out a first look at the production below!

CABARET will preview on Friday, January 19, 2018 (with a press opening on Saturday, January 20 at 8pm) and run through Sunday, February 11, 2018 at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, 14900 La Mirada Blvd in La Mirada.

A thrilling and up-to-date production of a classic show that is now more relevant than ever. The seedy glamour of the Kit Kat Club with its bawdy Emcee provide an unsettling but fitting backdrop to the story of the hard-living entertainer Sally Bowles in the decadent nightlife of Germany in the early '30s. Come hear some of the most memorable songs in musical theatre history, including "Cabaret," "Willkommen" and "Maybe This Time." Right this way, your table's waiting at the musical the New York Times calls "one for the ages."

The Cast of CABARET will feature Jeff Skowron as The Emcee, Zarah Mahler as Sally Bowles, Christian Pedersen as Clifford Bradshaw, Jack Laufer as Herr Schultz, Kelly Lester as Fraulein Schneider, Matt Koenig as Ernst Ludwig and Erica Hanrahan-Ball as Fraulein Kost.

Mendoza, Bruce Merkle, Kelly Powers-Figueroa, Nina Schreckengost, Brian Steven Shaw, Neil Starkenberg, Rodrigo Varandas, Candace Janin Washington and Jenna Wright.
