Upcoming Events at JCC's Scharmann Theatre
Fall 2016 Musical: Cabaret
The JCC Uncommoners are pleased to announce our fall 2016: Cabaret, with music by John Kander and Fred Ebb!
The show is adapted from the short novel Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood. Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, our story revolves around the seedy Kit Kat Klub, whose clientele includes a cross-section of the flotsam and jetsam of a doomed city.
The musical follows young English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with American writer Cliff Bradshaw, as well as the doomed romance between German boarding house owner Fraulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor.
A pre-audition workshop will be held May 16 and 17, in the Scharmann Theatre, at 7 p.m. both evenings. The plot, background, and basic vision of the show will be discussed and a dance workshop will be held. Singers should prepare a memorized song from the show to perform that evening. A pianist will be provided. Please bring along sheet music if you are not singing something from the show.
Final auditions will take place at the end of August, and a weekly dance class will be offered throughout the summer to prepare for the show. The classes will begin in June.
