Theater Department Performs "Cabaret"

Truman State University’s Division of Fine Arts presents the musical “Cabaret” by John Kander and Fred Ebb, directed by Lee Orchard. The show will be at 2 p.m., Feb. 27, 8 p.m., Feb. 28 and 8 p.m., March 2-4, in the Ophelia Parrish Courtyard Theatre.

“Cabaret” is a Tony award-winning musical set in Berlin, Germany, at the dawn of the Nazi takeover. A dark musical drama blending tragedy and comedy, “Cabaret” captures the heightened decadence that had taken root in Berlin prior to Hitler’s uprising. The show’s socially critical commentary speaks as much to America’s contemporary culture as to the society that lived during the Nazi invasion.

Featuring vaudevillian jazz music and a theatre that has been transformed into a nightclub setting, Truman’s production of “Cabaret” promises to be a lively and interactive theatrical event.

Tickets are $5 and may be reserved or purchased in advance at the Ophelia Parrish box office. Limited special seating is also available for $10.

For details or further information on the show, call the Ophelia Parrish box office at 785.4515. Due to the graphic content, this production is not recommended for children.
