DEMOREST, GA — The Piedmont College Theatre will be performing Cabaret beginning October 3rd through October 5th. The following local students will be part of the cast and crew of Cabaret when Piedmont College Theatre opens the 2019-2020 season next month:

Sierra Maxwell of Monroe

The award-winning musical explores the dark and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany yields to the emerging Third Reich as the 1920’s draw to a close.
The play opens with the Master of Ceremonies welcoming the audience and assuring us that we will forget all our troubles at the Cabaret, a notorious Berlin nightclub.
Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, arrives at the club and is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fraulein Schneider, proprietor of a boarding house, begins a romance with Herr Schultz, who happens to be Jewish. Cabaret is a powerful telling of a world in turmoil and the humanity caught in the midst of it. This is for mature audiences only.
The play is directed by William Gabelhausen, associate professor of theatre and chair of the Piedmont Department of Theatre.
Performances are 7:30 p.m., October 3-5 and 2 p.m., Oct. 6 at Swanson Center Mainstage Theater.
