Willkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome!
It’s 1929 and young American writer Cliff Bradshaw has just arrived in Berlin, a city where the party never ends. At the notorious Kit Kat Klub he meets the beguiling chanteuse Sally Bowles and his life is turned upside down forever. Meanwhile, Hitler’s tyrannical politics are rising fast — Cliff’s German landlady Fraulein Schneider and Jewish grocer Herr Schultz must face an impending harsh reality, and even the Kit Kat Klub’s gender-bending Emcee must acknowledge the riotous voices of a new Germany.

RISKY NIGHTS SERIES
Now in its 18th season, the Risky Nights Series is designed as a bridge between classroom work and main stage productions. At the conclusion of their second year of training, students have an invaluable opportunity to create every aspect of an original theatre piece from start to finish with a professional director, and perform it for an intimate audience.
