- Willkommen and Bienvenue to Cabaret for two days only at the State Theatre! Enter into the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles, and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd, and to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times? Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theater history, including "Cabaret," "Willkommen," and "Maybe This Time." Performances are on Friday night at 8:00 p.m., Saturday afternoon at 2:00 p.m., and on Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased online.
