Featuring music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb and book by Joe Masteroff, Cabaret is the story of a young American writer and a club’s headlining performer, who become entangled in the rising conflict of pre-war Berlin. The action takes place in and around the Kit Kat Klub, a decadent cabaret presided over by an outrageous emcee.
The play has won 12 Tony Awards and features some of Broadway’s best-known songs. The 1972 film version of the musical won eight Academy Awards. Cabaret is based on John Van Druten’s play, I Am a Camera, and Christopher Isherwood’s novel, Goodbye to Berlin.
The production is a collaboration between the College’s departments of Theatre Studies and Music with stage direction by Jack Zerbe, professor and chair of the Theatre Studies Department, and musical direction by Jim Bumgardner, instructor of music.
Costume design and scene design is by guest artist Robin Vest. Lighting design is by guest artist Roslyn Fulton. Choreography is by guest artist Duane Cyrus.
