OVATION WEST MUSICAL THEATRE WILL PRESENT “CABARET”  IN SEPT/OCTOBER 2019
AUDITIONS APRIL 22 and 29 BY APPOINTMENT

Cabaret (1998 version)
Book by Joe Masteroff
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb

More pertinent than ever, Cabaret, set in the avant-garde Berlin of the late 1920s depicts the beginnings of totalitarianism. Cliff Bradshaw, an American author, encounters Sally Bowles at the seedy Kit Kat Klub where she performs. As the Nazis begin taking control of the German government, the atmosphere of the Kit Kat Klub and the lives of Cliff and Sally begin to change dramatically.
