UWG Department of Theatre Presents “Cabaret”

by Raven Mackey

The University of West Georgia’s Theatre Department presents “Cabaret,” directed by Shelly Elman. “Cabaret” is a Tony Award winning musical and a book by Joe Masteroff, based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood, music by John Kander, and lyrics by Fred Ebb.

UWG Department of Theatre Presents “Cabaret” “Cabaret” is centered around Berlin’s Kit Kat Klub in the 1930s. Cliff, a young American writer, meets Ernst, a German who surprises Cliff by putting his briefcase among Cliff’s luggage at the German border. The audience will be entranced with dancing, musical scenes and theatrics.

Terrance Smith plays Clifford Bradshaw in the musical.

“I think you can take from this show that it is okay to be yourself. And I think Berlin during this time was sort of ahead of its time, in terms of being yourself and embracing who you are. And I think that is a great message everyone can take away from this show,” said Terrance.

The play is set to debut with a community preview on October 14 at 7 p.m. The tickets will be free for students and $3 for everyone else. The following performances will be held October 15-18 at 7:30 p.m. and October 18-19 at 2:30 p.m. in the Townsend Center. These tickets will be free for students, $10 for adults and $7 for seniors.
