Littleton, Colorado: Town Hall Arts Center (THAC) opens its 38th consecutive season with an iconic, classic show — Cabaret. Nick Sugar will be reprising his role as the Master of Ceremonies for the second time on the THAC stage, as well as bringing his signature edge to both the direction and choreography. In Berlin, during the 1930s, the sexy and decadent Kit Kat Klub hosted a cabaret full of colorful singers and dancers. An aspiring writer enters into the bohemian lifestyle of the Cabaret denizens, who appear unaware of the rise of the Nazi Party outside their doors, and how their lives would change forever. Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Maybe This Time,” “Money,” “Mein Herr,” “Two Ladies,” and “Cabaret.”

Featuring a book by Joe Masteroff. Based on the play by John Van Druten and Stories by Christopher Isherwood. Music by John Kander and Lyrics by Fred Ebb. Co-directed and Choreographed on Broadway by Rob Marshall. Directed on Broadway by Sam Mendes. Cabaret will delight you with high-energy song-and-dance numbers, and haunt you long after you leave the theater.

“Last seen on our stage 13 years ago, our uniquely-talented director, Nick Sugar, is also starring as the Master of Ceremonies!”

“Nick and his dedicated design team, actors, band, and crew are sure to transport you on an unforgettable journey.”

Denise Kato, President of the Board of Directors for THAC.
