The LCC Theatre Department will to present the musical, “Cabaret,” Feb. 18, 19, 25 and 26 at 8 p.m. and on Feb. 20 at 2 p.m. in the Dart Auditorium. The show is being directed by Mark Colson.

“We're so excited that we're able to produce this iconic musical at LCC,” said LCC Performing Arts Director Paige Dunckel. “Everyone is doing a fantastic job with their parts and the dance numbers, choreographed by LCC dance faculty Lauren Mudry. (They) are phenomenal.”

 “Cabaret” is a musical set in a Berlin nightclub. As the 1920s draw to a close, a garish emcee (played by Connor Kelly) 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.

Clifford (Drew Clark), a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles (Meghan Malusek.)

Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider (Judith Evans), proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz (Doak Bloss), a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish.

Musical numbers include "Willkommen," "Cabaret," "Don't Tell Mama" and "Two Ladies."

LCC student Makayla Marrison, who will play Kit Kat girl dancer Fiona in “Cabaret,” said she is excited for people to see the show.

“I’m most excited for audiences to see how beautifully each piece of this show fits together,” Marrison said. “From acting, to singing and dancing, we all as a cast have worked extremely hard to bring the world of ‘Cabaret’ to life.”

Dunckel said after the very successful musical “Hair” at LCC a few years ago, Director Mark Colson was excited to do another musical. “Cabaret” features 20 cast members.

“’Cabaret’ has a large cast with students, LCC alumni and community members filling the various roles,” Dunckel said.

Audiences can purchase tickets at the entrance of the auditorium with cash or checks (credit and debit cards are not taken). Online tickets will be available soon. Students can purchase discounted tickets with a student ID.
