MARYSVILLE – “Cabaret,” featuring teens ages 15-19 enrolled in Red Curtain’s Summer Stars program, will be performed Aug. 9-11 at its arts center.

The award-winning Broadway musical, which became a popular movie, is best-known for its catchy songs and dazzling dance numbers, but a sinister subplot addresses the rise of the Nazi Party in 1930s Berlin. As the Nazis gain power and prominence, the performers and customers who frequent the Kit Kat Klub become increasingly impacted by the party’s dark agenda. Summer Stars director Scott B Randall, Red Curtain’s artistic director, is also the drama coach at Snohomish High School and many of the actors and musicians in the play are from there. The cast also includes students from Marysville and elsewhere.

Other Snohomish faculty members, including musical director Nicholas Gorne and orchestra conductor Joe Boertmann, round out the directing team. Choreography is by Lexi Jones, and stage manager Erica Strand keeps everything on schedule. Red Curtain’s costumer Celeste Moody has designed and created a wardrobe that pays homage to the flamboyant and sometimes bawdy characters while recognizing that the actors are still teens. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m., with matinees Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Red Curtain Arts Center, 9315 State Ave, Suite J.

Tickets are $18 for adults, and $15 for seniors (62+), students and military personnel. For tickets: brownpapertickets.com; call 360-322-7402; or in-person at the arts center Tuesday-Saturday from 2-6 p.m. For details go to www.redcurtainfoundation.org.
