The Theatre Arts Department at Lake Tahoe Community College will present the hit Broadway musical “Cabaret” from June 10-19.
“‘Cabaret’ takes place in 1930, with American writer Cliff Bradshaw arriving in Berlin to search for excitement and ‘something to write about,’” according to a press release for the show. “He visits the seedy Kit Kat Klub, where the enigmatic Emcee, the enticing but self-absorbed singer Sally Bowles, and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd and encourage them to leave their troubles outside. A complicated romance develops between Cliff and Sally against the backdrop of the rise of the Nazi party. As the two pursue their pleasure, the world outside the Klub begins to splinter. Sally and Cliff are faced with a choice: abandon themselves to the pleasures promised by the cabaret, or open their eyes and face Germany’s coming storm.
“LTCC’s version of Cabaret mirrors the ground-breaking 1998 revival on Broadway starring Alan Cummings and Natasha Richardson. That production closely follows the play, written by John Van Druten, which was based on original stories written by Christopher Isherwood.”
Performances of “Cabaret” take place at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 10-11, and Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 16-18. Sunday matinees take place at 2 p.m. June 12 and 19.
Tickets are $15 for general admission, $12 for seniors, groups of eight or more, students with a valid student identification and children under 13. Tickets may be purchased one hour before show time and in advance from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Fridays at LTCC’s Bookstore.
Due to its adult content, this production is not recommended for children under the age of 18.
