CLARK — Arthur L. Johnson High School’s production of the famed Kander and Ebb musical “Cabaret” hits the stage this weekend.
“Cabaret” is set in Berlin, Germany circa 1930 during the pre-war years also known as the Weimar Era. It was a time of artistic freedom, boundless creativity, and unabashed decadence, all happening while a monster and his Nazi party were looming the background poised to change the world. The musical vacillates between the seedy Kit Kat Club and a rooming house where a young American writer becomes enamored with the nightclub’s cabaret singer, and the two experience pre-war Berlin to the hilt until it all comes crashing down around them.
Cabaret is directed by Peter Nevargic who says, “While not your typical American musical, our production of Cabaret is a wildly entertaining as well as a thought-provoking show that is not to be missed…!”
Performances will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday March 25 and Saturday March 26. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. The school is located at 365 Westfield Avenue, Clark.
