Concord College Theatre Proudly Presents Cabaret

Athens, W.Va. - Concord College theatre will be bringing the razzle-dazzle of Cabaret to Athens, W.Va., for their annual spring musical.

Cabaret is set in Berlin in 1930 just prior to World War II, which sets up the theme of the threat of war and the loss of individuality. The play centers on Cliff, an American writer played by Andy Rollyson, who travels to Berlin in search of inspiration for his next book. He finds himself at the Kit Kat club where he meets Sally, one of the premiere dancers who is played by Heather Comor. Cliff and Sally enter into an interesting relationship that unfolds throughout the musical.

Cabaret will feature intricate dance numbers and an array of songs performed by an orchestra composed of Concord students. Elaborate visuals and a detailed set will compliment the talented performers.

According to Dr. Thomas Gambill, head of the theatre program and director of Cabaret, “Students involved in this production are extremely dedicated, and that dedication will certainly show in the performance.”

Cabaret will be performed in the Main Theatre of the Alexander Fine Arts Center at Concord College, April 24-26 at 8:00 p.m.

Cabaret contains adult material and is not intended for a young audience.
