About the event

Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome!

CABARET's famed 'Kit Kat Klub' is returning to Melbourne for four weeks only from 27 April. David M. Hawkins presents a new Australian revival of one of the world’s most-loved musicals and a certified smash-hit that transports audiences back to 1930’s Weimar Berlin, where sexual freedom and self-expression are set against the backdrop of a changing society in the wake of Hitler’s rise to power.

Featuring a stellar Australian cast including five-time Helpmann Award-winning performer Paul Capsis as the flamboyant Master of Ceremonies (Emcee), leading lady Chelsea Gibb in her dream role as the beguiling Sally Bowles; the brilliant Kate Fitzpatrick as Fräulein Schneider, John O’May as the enigmatic Herr Schultz – and joining the cast for the Melbourne season as Ernst Ludwig, “a friendly and likeable German” is the irrepressible Michael Cormick.

Cabaret’s musical score by Kander & Ebb features world famous anthems 'Wilkommen' and 'Cabaret', leaving audiences with recognisable and famed lyrics and lines like “In here, life is beautiful”, “Politics? What does that have to do with us?” and “Hush up, Don't tell Mama, Shush up, Don't tell Mama... Don't tell Mama, whatever you do”. Melbourne is selling fast! Hurry – Book Now.
