CABARET! MS/HS Theatre Performances at Ouray School
March 23 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Weehawken & Ridgway Chautauqua Society and Ouray High School partner to produce the annual Ouray High School musical. For the 2023 season, Ouray High presents Tony-Award winning production: Cabaret. 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 with 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.
