CORNER BROOK — The Off-Broadway Players are promising audiences a real treat when the local theatre group brings the burlesque classic “Cabaret” to the Corner Brook Arts and Culture Centre stage on Oct. 25 and 26.
“One thing is certain, there is no lack of talent in Corner Brook and surrounding area,” said director Stephen Perchard, who noted he could have cast the show three times over.
“Cabaret” is set in Berlin in 1929, and explores the relationships of Cliff Bradshaw, an American writer who comes to Europe looking for inspiration in the seedy Kit Kat Club, amidst the ominous rise of the Nazi party in Germany.
The Off-Broadway production features Mark Smallwood as MC, Bill Allan as Cliff Bradshaw, and Rachael Joffred as Sally Bowles.
Perchard said rehearsals for the show are going really well. “I’m really pleased with the work our cast and crew are doing.”
The show features many well known musical numbers such as “Willkommen,” “Two Ladies,” “Money,” “I Don’t Care Much” and “Cabaret.”
“Cabaret” is written by Joe Masteroff with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. Off-Broadway’s production is being musically directed by Darlene Steeves, choreographed by Amy Andrews with technical direction by Neil Robbins.
