Welk Theatre presents Cabaret

May 1, 2015toJuly 26, 2015

The Welk Theatre has assembled a sterling cast of local San Diego, Los Angeles and out of state actors for is production of Cabaret. Heading the cast are local favorites Jeffrey Scott Parsons, Ashlee Espinosa, David Allen Jones and Sue Boland. Others include Charlene Koepf, Eric Hellmers, Michael Kelly, Andrea Williams, Adrian Mustain, Catie Maron, Stephanie Wolfe, Fisher Kaake, Hanz Enyeart, AJ Maynes, Collin McCarthy and Leif Corbell.

Director/Choreographer Ray Limon returns to Welk to stage this 1998 revival of the classic Kandor and Ebb musical. This production at the Welk is rated PG-13 as it is not the “soft-centered” version that most are used to having seen the movie starring Liza Minnelli and Joel Gray. The revival in 1996 portrayed a more realistic view of the attitudes and the promiscuity of the Kabarett patrons. Limon has taken an approach that begins with a more familiar “soft-centered” setting of the show and as the influence of the Nazi regime strengthens and causes the decline of attitude, morality and economics it begins to show in the actors – especially in the Kabarett itself.

The Welk presents a 13 week run opening May 1, 2015 and closing on July 26, 2015 with 5 shows per week on Thurs, Sat and Sun 1pm and Thurs and Sat 8pm. Ticket prices are $48 and you may add a pre-show buffet lunch, brunch or dinner starting at $19 more.
