Hit Musical Cabaret at Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center in September/October


Step out of the modern world and back in time to the divinely decadent Kit Kat Klub of 1930s Germany, the Cabaret where seductive singer Sally Bowles enchants the crowd each and every night. There, misfits and outcasts of Berlin come together, taking refuge from the storm of a rapidly changing society where their kind is less than welcome. Led by the enigmatic Emcee, the colorful characters of this Kander & Ebb masterpiece are eager to entertain you with numbers like "Don't Tell Mama," "Willkommen," and "Cabaret." This year is the 50th anniversary of the debut of this Tony Award-winning classic, and now you can see Cabaret at Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center. September 9 to October 15.
