Picture it: 1920s Berlin. Outside, unrest growing in the streets. Inside, at a dark nightclub, a master of ceremonies takes to the stage to invite to forget all your worries.
This is the Kit Kat Klub, the setting for the award-winning musical “Cabaret,” the raucous, dark and complex tale of an American novelist and British nightclub singer trying to survive as artists in uncertain times. The show is being brought to life this weekend by Theatre Roanoke College, whose student performers are putting on the production Nov. 16-18.
