Cabaret Struts onto the Neumann Stage

Cabaret
Tiffany Martonana, Ray Crozier and Doug Schultz (standing) star in Cabaret August 13 - 16.

Center Stage Productions presents the five-time, Tony award-winning musical, Cabaret, August 13 – 16 at Neumann University.

 

Cabaret is a musical based on a book written by Christopher Isherwood, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. The 1966 Broadway production became a hit, inspiring numerous subsequent productions in London and New York, as well as the 1972 film of the same name.

 

Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, it is based in nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub, and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw. A sub-plot involves the doomed romance between German boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor. Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub. The club serves as a metaphor for ominous political developments in late Weimar Germany.

 

Center Stage Productions is a part of the Arts Guild at Neumann University. The Arts Guild was established in 1991 to enhance the high level of cultural enrichment presented to the Delaware Valley Community. The eight member organizations - Center Stage Productions, the Cultural Arts Forum, the Delaware County Symphony, International Ballet Classique, the Neumann University Arts Gallery, the Neumann University Concert Chorale, the Neumann University Jazz Band and the Neumann University Players - offer performances and seminars in the Fred P.
