Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Mark Velednitsky
It’s New Years Eve in 1930’s Berlin, and the Kit Kat Klub is alive and in its element, entertaining everyone from soldiers to starving authors. An American writer comes to Germany for the first time and slowly becomes entangled in the romance, politics and parties around him. Cabaret confronts the role of artists and citizens in turmoil and demonstrates a city as it changes over time.
Written by Joe Masteroff
Music by John Kander | Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Directed by Lana Cosic

“As You Like It explores and parodies love in its many shapes and forms. Going into the Forest of Arden, each character learns more about and expresses their identity. In this minimalist rendition, we’ll use physical comedy to engage the audience and connect them to the crazy story of mixed identities. Oh, and did we mention the singing fools? Yes, there are those, too. All the world’s a stage.”
