CABARET DEC. 4 - 19
Book by Joe Masteroff Music & Lyrics by John Kander & Fred Ebb
Directed by Kyle Barnette
Music Direction by Leah Megli
Choreography by Sarah Callahan
What If? gets downright nasty, turning the Kit Kat Klub inside out in this gritty and intimate interpretation of the 1998 revival of Cabaret. Charleston musical theatre veteran Brian Porter (Emcee) heads up a cast of 14 performers, as young novelist Cliff and the effervescent Sally Bowles watch the influence of Nazi Germany engulf the disarming yet sleazy culture and atmosphere of the beloved and debauchery-filled hot spot along with the world around them.

Roger & Tom May 12 - 22, 2016
Written by Julien Schwab(Regional Premiere)
Penny has a plan to reconcile her two estranged brothers, Roger and Tom, at the performance of Tom’s new play. But her sudden discovery that her husband is leaving her threatens the sibling reunion. As she fights to save her marriage, Roger arrives. Not at the door, but from his seat in the audience where he was already watching Tom’s play, roger&tom. In the fast-paced, mind-bending, quasi-romantic-tragi-dramedy that follows, family secrets emerge, the fourth wall dissolves then reforms and the siblings are forced to question not only their identities, but their very existence.

New Year's Eve 2094, 16 months after the fall of the United States of America, a small family living in a cabin in 'New Colonies' of the Rocky Mountains attempt to adapt to some sense of normalcy, isolating themselves from the new order of society. When old friends pay them a visit, they bring with them the realities of the new world outside, determination for survival as they perhaps seek more than just a friend drop-in. A thrilling new work that explores what its like when we all must start over on the same playing field.
The Poetry of Craigslist
It's a double header of comedy starting with The Poetry Of Craigslist, hosted by Jeremy McLellan (Charleston City Paper's Best Local Comic 2015), with rotating selection of some of Charleston theatre's most popular performers taking real life, every day Craigslist ads and turning them into comic gold for your enjoyment. You'll be amazed by what seemingly everyday people will post online with the promise of anonymity!
