“Cabaret” Comes to Life at MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre

WILLKOMMEN, BIENVENUE, WELCOME: To “Cabaret,” coming to Mercer County Community College’s Kelsey Theatre January 31-February 9. Matthew (Hewie) Swanson stars as Cliff and Jenna German plays Sally Bowles.

The Kelsey Theatre at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) in conjunction with Theater To Go will present the landmark musical, Cabaret, January 31-February 9 at Kelsey Theatre.

This 1966 Broadway hit, based on Christopher Isherwood’s short novel Goodbye to Berlin, harkens back to authoritarian 1930s Germany where nightlife at the smoky Kit Kat Klub offers a refuge for escapists. Decadence, sexual ambiguity, and good times are the norm until a dark turn brings everything to an end.

Winner of 12 Tony Awards since its original Broadway premiere, the show includes memorable songs including “Cabaret,” “Willkommen,” “Tomorrow Belongs To Me” and “Maybe This Time.” The play became an Oscar-winning 1972 movie-musical starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York, and Joel Grey that was directed by Bob Fosse.

Tickets are $22. Visit kelsey.mccc.edu or call (609) 570-3333 to buy tickets and get performance times.
