PHOENIX, Ariz., March 20, 2012)- The Phoenix College Fine and Performing Arts Department is staging the musical "Cabaret" April 19-21 and April 25-28, 2012 at the John Paul Theatre on the central Phoenix campus.
The student production is a joint project of the Theatre and Music programs. Cabaret is based on the book by Joe Masteroof and the play of John Van Druten. Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, it focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw. Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub, which serves as a constant metaphor for the tenuous and threatening rise of Hitler and the Nazis.
The musical is directed by Ann Schindler, with her husband, Karl Schindler, who is PC's Music Program Director, serving as musical director.
It will feature student Allison Gerke in the lead role of Sally Bowles, Martin Van Dyke playing her American boyfriend and Quincy Holden in the role of Master of Ceremonies.
