You’ll find something old, something new, and something for everyone in this participatory play which combines three traditional fairy tales in a most unusual fashion. The Prince has invited all of the girls in the kingdom to a big disco dance at the palace. Cinderella cannot go because she has no disco dress! The Fairy Godmother comes to the rescue. When Cinderella doubts that she can catch the eye of the handsome Prince, the Fairy Godmother tries to convince her by telling the story of Sleeping Beauty. When Cinderella hesitates a second time, she is told the story of Beauty and the Beast. At last she is convinced and attends the dance in royal fashion. With plenty of participation, this show is both fun and educational.

Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has justenrolled at East High. They cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical, led by Ms. Darbus.

Main Stage

Cabaret (1998 Version)
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
Thursday through Saturday, August 13, 14, 15 • 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, August 16 • 2:00 p.m.


This revival of Cabaret opened on Broadway at the Kit Kat Klub, March 19, 1998. It soon moved to Studio 54 and played for a total of 2,377 performances. The scene is the Kit Kat Klub, a night club in Berlin, as the 1920s are drawing to a close. The Emcee welcomes the audience to the show and assures them that, whatever their troubles, they will forget them at the Cabaret. His songs provide wry commentary throughout the show. Musical numbers include Willkommen, Cabaret, Mein Herr,
Maybe This Time, The Money Song and Two Ladies. When we revisit the Klub at the end, much is changed, and the show ends with a stark foreshadowing of things to come. The Emcee strips off his overcoat to reveal a concentration camp prisoner’s uniform marked with a yellow Star of David, and we are reminded of this tumultuous and heartbreaking era.
ADMISSION: General $15; College students with ID $12; Children/students under
