The Proposed 2018 Summer Mainstage Season:

Kander & Ebb’s CABARET
June 14th through July 14th – Tuesdays through Sundays at 8 PM

Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, it focuses on the nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub, and revolves around young American writer Cliff Bradshaw and his relationship with English cabaret performer Sally Bowles.

Sally Bowles – The headlining British singer at the Kit Kat Klub
The Emcee – The Emcee of the Kit Kat Klub, a leering, ghoulish, flamboyant figure
Cliff Bradshaw – An American writer traveling through Berlin
Fräulein Schneider – An older woman who runs the boarding house that Cliff and Sally live in
Herr Schultz – An elderly Jewish fruit shop owner who falls in love with Fräulein Schneider
Ernst Ludwig – A German man who befriends Cliff when he arrives in Berlin, later revealed to be a Nazi
Fräulein Kost – A prostitute who rents in Fräulein Schneider’s boarding house
Rosie, LuLu, Frenchie, Texas, Fritzie, and Helga – Girls who perform alongside Sally at the Kit Kat Klub
Bobby, Victor, Hans, and Herman – The Cabaret Boys of the Kit Kat Klub (Bobby and Victor are twins)

This fast-paced show includes a lot of movement and music. Some Kit Kat Klub members will also be part of the band, so if you play an instrument, make sure to let us know!


Gilbert & Sullivan’s THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE
July 18th through August 18th – Tuesdays through Sundays at 8 PM

Frederic, who, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates. He meets Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley, and the two young people fall instantly in love. Frederic soon learns, however, that he was born on the 29th of February, and so, technically, he must serve for another 63 years. Bound by his own sense of duty, Frederic’s only solace is that Mabel agrees to wait for him faithfully.
