Our Gang's "Cabaret"

Cabaret

Our Gang returned to our "second home" at the Surflight Theatre in Beach Haven to perform four shows in October 2013, directed by Our Gang's Perry Award-winning Jessica O'Brien. Stunning songs, fascinating characters, and a compelling storyline, Cabaret is set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power. The story focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw.
