‘Cabaret’ performances to begin Wednesday despite weather

Marshall University’s School of Music and Theatre will present “Cabaret,” a show directed and choreographed by Nicole Perrone, starting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Francis-Booth Experimental Theatre.
“Cabaret is based in the 1930s in Berlin, Germany, where there is the Kit Kat Klub, a place of fun and time away from your troubles,” Scott said. “An American named Cliff Bradshaw travels here to make his next story. He meets the mysterious Sally Bowles and the entertaining Emcee at the Klub.”
Scott said the snow has not postponed any performances. Due to the snow, Monday and Tuesday’s rehearsals were canceled, but Scott said rehearsal time would be rescheduled.
Scott said performances are also scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and Feb. 26 through Feb. 28 at the Francis-Booth Experimental Theatre. A matinee show will be performed at 2 p.m. March 1.
Student tickets are free with MU ID. Adult tickets are $20 and $15 for seniors. Scott said tickets are also available for cabaret tables located in the audience.
In 1968, “Cabaret” won Best Musical along with eight other Tony Awards. The show also won Best Revival in 1998 and four other Tony Awards.
“This is my first musical as stage manager at Marshall, and it is really interesting to watch the show slowly come together,” Scott said. “To listen to the music and see the dances and scenes form into one show is truly a great thing. Watching so many talents and skills together to make one story come to life.”
