ROYAL OAK –
The unthinkable is happening. Civil liberties are trampled, private security forces are terrorizing innocent civilians, people are imprisoned without trial, military might is glorified, and illegal aliens are considered a dangerous threat.
Although it could be mistaken for today’s news headlines, it is the political backdrop for “Cabaret,” set in 1930s Berlin. An English nightclub singer, an American writer, a German landlady and a Jewish fruit vendor find their destinies linked and their futures uncertain as Europe stands on the brink of devastation.

Follow the seductive Master of Ceremonies as he bids you to “leave your troubles outside” and experience the sights and sounds of the decadent Kit Kat Club.
