Video: First Look at CABARET at WPPAC!
CABARET, winner of the 1967 Tony Award for Best Score and Best Musical and the 1998 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical will play the White Plains Performing Arts Center stage August 3-12.
CABARET features memorable songs, including "Willkommen," "Cabaret," "Two Ladies" and "Maybe This Time," and tells the story of the infamous Kit Kat Klub at the cusp of the 1930's in pre-WWII Berlin. As Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich the Kit Kat Klub invites audiences to leave their troubles at the door and indulge. As life in Germany grows uncertain, will the allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through the tumultuous times?

They are supported by Peter Ackerman (Herr Schultz), Nellie O'Brien (Fraulein Schneider), Kevin Rodd (Ernst), and Rebecca Simpson-Wallack (Kost), with Allison Burke, Jacob Anthony Cain, James Anthony Caposito, Casey Dath, Megan Fay, Katie Jo Flanagan, Rena Gavigan, Jenna Goldberg, Leah Lundin Hall, Kat Katona, Kayla Mattocks, Abby Grace Menocal, Jake T.
