The Upper School Fall Musical “Cabaret” opened Nov. 2 and continued showings Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Performing Arts Department Head Rees Pugh said the department decided to add the Monday show due to a home football game. The Monday show is aimed at students who were unable to get tickets in time to see the show on either Friday, Saturday or Sunday, according to Pugh.

Rehearsals for the show started in mid-September and carried on through the beginning of the first week of Nov.

Students said they were excited to finally get to see what their peers have been working on for so long.

“I know they’ve been working so hard on this show with all their rehearsals these past few months, so I can’t wait to see all their hard work pay off,” Amelia Koblentz ’20 said. “I feel like since ‘Cabaret’ is such a different type of show than what I’ve seen the school do in previous years it should be really fun and cool to watch.”

Students in the show said that they couldn’t wait to finally get to show everyone what they have put so much hard work into.

“I’m super excited because we worked extremely hard on the show and we’re all so excited to show ‘Cabaret’ to an audience. It’s been such a great experience to work with all the teachers and I know it’ll be great,” Calista Chu ’20, a cast member, said.
