Welcome to the Kit Kat Klub, where the students of the Irish College of Music Theatre (in collaboration with DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama) host the world-famous musical about life, passion and despair in Berlin under the darkening skies of approaching fascism.

Boasting a lush and soaring score, with classic songs and daring choreography, CABARET is based on true events and real lives, and portrays the experiences of the English writer Christopher Isherwood, who lived in the Berlin district of Schöneberg from 1929 to 1933, making real life the source of this highly sensual theatrical experience.

The story of the carefree nightclub-singer Sally Bowles in the glittering yet shady milieu of the Golden Twenties immortalised the city of Berlin as the city of historical fractures, caught between glamour and the gutter, between dreams and despair.  The show will break your heart and lift your spirits more wildly than anything else you can see in the city right now, and will introduce you to exciting new talent being nurtured at the Irish College of Music Theatre.

This production of CABARET is the work of director Christine Scarry, musical director David Wray, choreographer Mary MacDonagh, designer John O’Donoghue, and is produced by Deirdre Masterson for the Irish College of Music Theatre.
