ABOUT THE SHOW: Kander and Ebb’s dazzling, decadent musical set in 1930 Berlin at the infamous Kit Kat club where Sally Bowles sings,
dances and falls in love, all under the impending, ominous rise of Hitler’s Nazi Party. This remarkable musical has won more than a dozen Tony
awards in its three Broadway productions, and Bob Fosse’s film version won eight Academy Awards. Great acting opportunities for every cast mem-
ber, not to mention unforgettable songs like “Mein Herr,” “Wilkommen,” “Money Makes the World Go ‘Round,” “Maybe This Time,” “Don’t
Tell Mama,” and, of course, “Cabaret.”

PERFORMANCES: July 15-August 8, 2010, Thursdays-Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m.
