Read a synopsis of the play below:
Willkommen to the Kit Kat Klub. The Asheville School Music, Dance and Drama programs take you into thedecadent nightlife of 1930s Berlin. It's New Year's Eve, and American writer Cliff Bradshaw (Tristan Wall) arrives at the cabaret to find himself beguiled by the "toast of Mayfair", Sally Bowles (Simi Bal) and thecharismatic Emcee (Avi Goldstein). Inside they live in a world of delicious denial, while outside the gathering storm of Nazi oppression grows. Winner of multiple Tony Awards, Joe Masteroff's book for Cabaret was based on John van Druten's play I Am a Camera, itself inspired by Christopher Isherwood's Berlin stories. Filled with hit songs by Kander and Ebb, and a story that still speaks profoundly to us today, Cabaret is a knock-out.
This musical contains mature themes and visuals. Parental discretion is advised for children 13 or younger.
