General Auditions for Cabaret Milwaukee’s 2018-19 Season

 

Cabaret Milwaukee Presents our Fourth Full Season of originally written & produced cabaret entertainment blending theatre, live music, vintage news, comedy, and old time radio drama. Structured as a live radio variety show, a long form radio play is presented as a straight play with scenes interspersed between performances by the shows comedians, jingle singers, tap dancers, and crooners all steeped in the era which the show is set.

Our 2018-19 Season will be a re-imagined mounting of our very first trilogy, “The Jealous Revolver,” written by Jackie Benka. “The Jealous Revolver,” is a noir detective drama set in the a sleazy speakeasy in the seedy streets of prohibition era Milwaukee. Love, vengeance, bullets, and booze stimulate this stories intrigue.

We are thrilled to be presenting all three shows this season in The Astor Bar & Grille at The Astor Hotel 901 W. Juneau. Also new to production this year: Cabaret MKE will be recording one show from each episode for later radio broadcast.
