Sponsored in part by the Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Musical Theatre Fund | Directed by McCaela Donovan | Music Direction by Catherine Stornetta | Choreography by Olivia Tennison | In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boardinghouse, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish.

ANTIGONE by Sophocles | Fri, May 4. 2018– 10 a.m
Adapted by Lewis Galantiere from the play by Jean Anouilh | Directed by Jim Petosa | The Galantiere version of the Greek legend comes from a Paris that suffered under the heel of tyranny. The play’s parallels to modern times in our United States are exciting and provocative.
