Please prepare a 30-60 second, memorized musical selection in the style of the show. An accompanist will be available so please provide your own sheet music in the correct key.

There will be a general dance audition so please have comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear. Ladies - please wear character heels.

Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd – and to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get themthrough their dangerous times? Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including “Cabaret,” “Willkommen” and “Maybe This Time.” Leave your troubles outside – life is beautiful at CABARET…

Emcee: Master of Ceremonies of the Kit Kat Klub; an androgynous, flamboyant figure; dark, comedic, sexy, sinister, vulgar…yet lovable; requires a strong presence that is playful and mysterious. German accent. Must move well. Vocal range: C3 to high C#5.

Fräulein Schneider: landlady who rents to Cliff and several other characters. German accent. Vocal range: D3-A-flat4

Herr Schultz: a Jewish fruit shop owner who falls in love with Fraulein Schneider; sweet, lovable, and adoring; heartbreakingly naïve about the political turmoil in Germany; comfortable with stage movement and light dance. German accent. Vocal range: low G-high F.

Fräulein Kost: a prostitute who rents in Fraulein Schneider's boarding house; larger than life personality, quick witted and sharp tongued. German accent. Sings in German. Vocal Range: low A flat-high F.
