Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a math professor at The University of Chicago. Following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father’s, who hopes to find valuable work in the notebooks he left behind. In the ensuing struggles, a mysterious notebook surfaces to draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father’s madness – or genius – will she inherit?

CABARET Runs June 21-30

BCT_Cabaret logoCABARET
Beavercreek Community Theatre
June 21-30

Directed by Kathy Mola
Music directed by Chuck Larkowski
Choreographed by Michael Shepherd

Cast: RJ Steck as Emcee, Hayley Penchoff as Sally Bowles, Daniel Bashore as Cliff Bradshaw, Victoria Rogers as Fraulein Schneider, Tim Rezash as Herr Schulz, Susie Gutierrez as Fraulein Kost & Aaron Brewer as Herr Ernst Ludwig
Kit Kat Girls: Megan Johnson, Victoria Warren, Sasha Kozlova, Amber Todd & Christy Carson

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boardinghouse, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Two Ladies.”

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure that brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage. Featuring all new songs, beautiful sets, and amazing costumes, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.

Great fun for the whole family, Shrek is the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero.
