Produced by: Palomar Performing Arts
* Performers interested solely in the roles of Fraulein Schneider and Heir Schultz need only attend vocal auditions and (if called), the callbacks.
* Dancers with a desire to dance only need to attend the dance auditions and be available (if called) for callbacks.
* Actors looking for non-singing and dancing roles may audition for these parts at the end of the vocal auditions on Wednesday night and need not attend the dance auditions. Please prepare a one-minute monologue. NB these roles are supporting only.
It is to your advantage to audition for all aspects of the production; failure to do so will severely limit your chances of being cast.

Plain View Theatre presents a Palomar Theatre Ensemble production of Tennesee Williams’ classic play The Glass Menagerie. The Palomar Theatre Ensemble is a group of passionate Theatre, Dance and Music students from Palomar College whose mission is to give students a chance to independently produce high quality plays from the classics, to contemporaries to original student-written work.
Vocalist Robert Giracello is joined by pianist Chad Ohlheiser for a variety of English art songs, featuring Vaughan-Williams Songs of Travel, original compositions with text by James Joyce, and popular music/Broadway selections.
One hundred years ago, the music world was rocked by the premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. Join Cal Arts faculty members Steven Vanhauwaert and Danny Holt as they fashion a riveting “four hands” piano performance of this seminal masterpiece. Also featured will be selections by Ravel and Poulenc from the duo’s CD, Paris 1913.
Shake it! Vibrant color, movement and earth shaking rhythm explode when Patriceann Mead and the Afro-Cuban and Brazilian drum and dance ensemble Agogo hit the floor with irresistible force. Also featured are the fabulous tropical rhythms of La Farandula. Join these inspired dancers and musicians for an unforgettable experience!

Book by Joe Masterhoff Lyrics by Fred Ebb Music by John Kander
It’s 1931 and anything goes with young singer Sally Bowles and the outcasts and deviants who populate Germany’s outrageous Kit Kat Club. Loaded with provocative dance and driven by a truly human story, this ten-time Tony Award winning musical features classic songs like Wilkommen, Don’t Tell Mama, The Money Song,Tomorrow Belongs to Me, and, of course, Cabaret. Step inside!

Plus: Don’t miss Coffee Talk following Thursday’s Cabaret performance! “Cabaret (1966-present): How the Musical Stays Relevant” Nearly 50 years since the musical’s debut on Broadway, Cabaret is still one of the most popular, engaging, and topically relevant musicals performed across the globe. Running against the grain for the genre, this musical, with its pointed political satire and bawdy cabaret numbers, tackles one of the darkest periods of the twentieth century head-on in a story that offers an ever-relevant moral tale for the current audience. Come watch our matinee performance then stay for an after-show discussion with free refreshments, to learn more about this theatre masterpiece and its unique history!
