ANNOUNCING AUDITIONS FOR CABARET
What good is sitting alone in your room? Come to the
for actors, singers, dancers, and musicians ages 18 and older. Performances are scheduled for two weekends in
June, opening June 14.
Those who audition will be asked to sing a prepared selection, preferably with sheet music. An accompanist
will be there at 6 to work through songs for those who bring music. Everyone will be asked to learn a dance
combination and may be asked to read sides from the script. The show will be directed by OCP Artistic
Director Garrett Bradley. Please bring your calendar and be prepared to list any conflicts you may have during
the rehearsal period.
Bradley notes musicians will also appear in scenes, so he seeks actors who can also play an instrument. The
tuba, and accordion.
In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s 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 “Money.”
The 1967 Kander and Ebb Broadway production earned 8 Tony Awards, including best musical.
by a film that did not win Best Picture.
