Cabaret

EXTENDED!  Now Showing September 8 - October 9

Willkommen to the ever-present Kit Kat Klub, Berlin’s seedy nightclub where everything is “beautiful,” even as Germany descends into the gripsof the Third Reich. A bawdy and gregarious Master of Ceremonies leads us through the story, as we follow Cliff Bradshaw, a naive American writer, who falls in love with performer Sally Bowles. Cabaret has stood the test of time for over fifty years as each generation finds new relevance in its powerful themes.

Anything that can go wrong, does, in this hilarious play-within-a-play. The Play That Goes Wrong follows the antics of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, who are trying their very best to stage a production of a 1920s murder mystery. But, as the title suggests, this is not as easy as it sounds. Watch as this company of actors and crew strive valiantly to prove that “the show must go on” as the disasters mount and we’re left wondering how they will make it to the final curtain.
