Cabaret. Held on Saturday, April 8 at 7:00 p.m. at Science Hill School Auditorium, this year’s cabaret features local performers of all ages performing songs and monologues from popular musical works as well as original works created specifically for the theme of “Villains.”

The characters selected to be portrayed by the performers include the Witch from Into the Woods,  Fastrada from Pippin, Ursula from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, the “Merry Murderesses” from Chicago, J.D. from Heathers, and Sweeney Todd from the musical of the same name. The lineup also includes original work written by the performers themselves.

Each act prepared their piece for an audition and, once selected, was given complimentary coaching time through FbTC’s partnership with McNeil Music Center. The Cabaret is a part of our Let’s Play! series, which encourages local performing talent by providing performing and learning opportunities throughout the year.

Between performers, audiences can expect exciting announcements about the upcoming Let’s Play! season t0 be made throughout the evening. All donations received at the cabaret will go towards Let’s Play! programming. A donation of $5-$10 is suggested for the event.
