Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department alums appear in the musical Cabaret, running May 4-June 4 at Theatre at the Center in Munster, Indiana. Director-choreographer Linda Fortunato, artistic director of Theatre at the Center and a former Musical Theatre Dance instructor at the Columbia College Theatre Department, has assembled a cast that includes Columbia College alums Ann Delaney ’14, Courtney Mack ’15, and Mallory Maedke ’14, all graduates of the Columbia College Theatre Department’s BFA Program in Musical Theatre Performance. Delaney is in the ensemble and also understudies the lead female role of Sally Bowles. Mack and Maedke play “Kit Kat Girls” — dancers at the decadent Kit Kat Klub in 1931 Berlin. Also in the cast is Theatre Department faculty member Craig Spidle.
Set in 1931 as the Nazis are rising to power, Cabaret tells the story of Berlin’s night life, specifically the Kit Kat Klub and performer Sally Bowles, through the eyes of a young American writer trying to write his novel. With a score by John Kander and Fred Ebb and a book by Joe Masteroff, based on stories by British novelist Christopher Isherwood, Cabaret was conceived and originally directed by Harold Prince.
