In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s 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 boarding house, 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."

Witness the talents of Katherine Almquist as a female Prospero in The Tempest. This weekend and next. Shermanplayers.org

"She (Katherine Almquist) is not the first woman to take on the male-gendered character but she succeeds so well in the role that it is easy to see why some scholars believe Prospero represents Shakespeare. The reason for this is that Shakespeare has total control of his characters in this, one of his last plays, as Prospero has full authority over all of the actions of all the entities on the island, whether spirit or human. Almquist allows no doubt as to who is in control here.": Joanne Grecco Rochman, Republican American

What the Newtown Bee had to say about local actor, Patrick Fergus as Ferdinand in The Tempest:

"It was exciting to watch the younger actors so fully play out these roles, in particular Patrick Fergus as Ferdinand. It was a delight to watch him intently engage, even as his character was silent." Beth Young, Newtown Bee

Looking forward to weekend number two. With a little added seasoning it should be that much better than weekend number one. Everyone should come and check it out. You don’t have to be a Shakespeare snob to enjoy it!
