Tri-M Productions is presenting the musical “Cabaret” for its second and last weekend at the Santa Fe Woman’s Club, 1616 Old Pecos Trail in Santa Fe. The Tony-Award winning musical features music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and book by Joe Masteroff. Performances are Friday and Saturday evening, March 11 and 12 at 7:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday matinees, March 12 and 13 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $25 for Adult General Admission, and $12 for Student/Children. Tickets are available at https://www.trimsantafe.org and, if we don’t sell out, available at the door. The production features a live “Kit Kat Klub orchestra” and a talented set of young local professional actors.
“Cabaret,” known perhaps best from the 1972 movie or the Tony-award-winning 1998 Broadway revival, is sometimes thought of as a light-hearted if decadent musical. Instead, you should be aware of the bigoted, fascist, gender-phobic, and highly sexual behaviors in this dark musical set in Weimar Germany in the early days of the rise of the Nazis. Viewer Discretion Advised before you purchase tickets.
As with other performing organizations in Santa Fe, for the safety of our cast and your fellow audience members we will require attendees to show proof-of-vaccination against COVID-19 virus or present a negative test taken within 48 hours at the door, and to wear a mask while indoors.
