Wilkommen to Cabaret as you’ve never seen it before. Join the Stagecraft Class of 2019 and the Theatre Department as they combine to present this classic award winning musical, complete with incredible technical values and spectacular performances. Based on the stories of Christopher Isherwood’s experiences in Berlin before World War II, the show is full of memorable songs (Cabaret, Mein Herr, Maybe This Time) and colorful characters. So come to the cabaret!! We promise you won’t leave the same. . .

This production includes a special VIP Section which allows patrons to chose their own seats on a variety of couches/ottomans/padded benches right in the middle of the action. As part of this special cabaret seating, your ticket includes dessert and a special mocktail! (NO raw eggs involved!) Experience the show up close and personal like you’ve never seen it before – a truly immersive experience! These seats are limited so reserve yours early!

For legal reasons, we need to let you know that the 2014 revival (which is the script we are using) was performed from a Book written by Joe Masteroff with Music by John Kander and Lyrics by Fred Ebb. It is based on the play originally written by John Van Druten which in turn was based on the stories of Christopher Isherwood. The 2014 revival on Broadway was Co-directed by Rob Marshall and Sam Mendes and choreographed by Mr. Marshall. We thank them for their work on this modern classic and hope to celebrate their accomplishments with our production.

Now one of the most performed shows in America, SEUSSICAL is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Who’s.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Who’s, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Who’s from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

This shortened version, SEUSSICAL, JR., is fun for the whole family! Our 8th grade students are excited to portray the characters from the familiar Dr. Seuss fables. Please be aware that shows in the Black Box sell out quickly, especially the always charming 8th grade shows. PLEASE buy your tickets early and only buy what you really need so that all families may enjoy these performances.
