DIT Conservatory of Music & Drama & Irish College of Music Theatre to present hit musical CabaretPosted: 19 January, 2016
Saturday January 30th 8.15pm Sunday, January 31st 8.15pm & 3.00pm The Helix
DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama is proud to present in association with the Irish College of Music Theatre the hit musical “CABARET” on the 30th and 31st January in the Helix, Dublin.
The iconic musical CABARET is ultimately about life, passion and despair in Berlin under the darkening skies of approaching fascism. Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, it is based around the nightlife at the seedy Kit-Kat club, and revolves around the 19 year old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw. CABARET is based on true events and real lives, and 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.
Boasting a lush and soaring score, filled with poignant melodies, haunting lyrics, and daring choreography CABARET has a powerful dramatic quality that resounds in our minds and hearts.
The artistic team comprises of Director, Christine Scarry; Musical Director, David Wray, Choreographer; Mary MacDonagh and Producer Deirdre Masterson. With a combined cast of IMT musical theatre and DIT orchestral students, this ensemble production combines the skills and expertise to produce what promises to be a unique and entertaining production of this iconic show. According to Producer Deirdre Masterson “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 DIT and the Irish College of Music Theatre”.
Performances of Cabaret are scheduled for Saturday January 30th and Sunday January 31st at 8:15pm in the Helix Theatre, Dublin, with a matinee Saturday the 31st at 3:00pm. Tickets are available from www.thehelix.ie or telephone 01 700 7000
