This semi-formal event, the first-ever fundraiser for the Mysterium Theater, promises a full evening of top-flight entertainment. First up at A Winter's Eve is a wine and appetizer reception, where you can browse and bid on silent auction items. That's followed by a seated dinner, set to include Cornish game hen, an orzo and vegetable combo, salad, dessert and hot cider, or wassail. Then you'll be treated to a musical revue featuring hits from the Great American Songbook by the Gershwins, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, performed by a cast of 24 of Mysterium's finest actor-singers. As a capper to this festive evening, take advantage of the quick ballroom and swing lesson, so you can dance the rest of the night away to big-band music. Learn More

Bad direction, amature performances. the theater was small and the director saw fit to fill it up with smoke effects to the point of asphyxiation for the audience. to ad to this potent brew the actors were smoking clove cigerettes on stage and scented candeles were burning in the lobby. a lot of scented candles... we had to leave after 15 minutes. many others were suffering also. a truly bad experience!!
"Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome, in cabaret, au cabaret, to cabaret!"
Kander and Ebb's remarkable musical Cabaret turns the pre-war Berlin of 1931 into a dark and sexually charged haven of decadence, its extraordinary and morally ambiguous inhabitants determined to keep up appearances as the real world - the world outside the comfortable sanctuary of the cabaret - prepares for the nightmarish chaos of war. Its stage and screen awards include 8 Oscars, 7 BAFTA's and 13 Tony Awards.
Join the legendary Sally Bowles live at the Kit Kat Klub: "a shimmering masterpiece of a show guaranteed night after night! It's divine decadence darling!"
Please note: This production contains adult material and is not suitable for children.
This is the second time T. J. Dawson has directed and choreographed this musical. His first Cabaret with the Costa Mesa Playhouse was awarded “Best Show in 2004” in the L.A. Times/Daily Pilot Community Theatre Year End Review. He has also received several awards, Critic’s Pick’s and Roar of the Crowd awards by Backstage West and Gold Star Events for his work on such productions as Side Show, Bat Boy and A Chorus Line.
About the Ticket Supplier: La Habra Depot Theatre
The La Habra Community Theatre began in 1976 as a Children's Theatre project of the City's newly established Cultural Arts Council. The first production was Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. It was performed in La Habra High School's lecture hall since the city did not have a Community Performing Arts Facility.
At the same time, the 1909 Pacific Electric Depot building stood empty and in danger of demolition if it was not restored to a functional role in the community. Planning for its renovation as a Community Performing Arts Facility was initiated by the Mayor of La Habra and supported by the City Council as well as many community members. The "train station", or depot, was then moved across the street to its current location in Portola Park to integrate it into the master plan for the redevelopment of downtown La Habra.
Funding to restore the depot and convert it to a Theatre came largely from the Federal Government Restoration of Historical Landmarks. "The Depot" was declared Orange County Historical Landmark Site #14.
In January of 1980, the Children's Theatre project was expanded to incorporate adult theatre. Then, in July of 1982, the 100 members of the Community Theatre moved into the Depot Playhouse. The first performance in the restored building was the musical Oklahoma. On August 15, 1995 the Depot Playhouse became a non-profit tax-exempt organization and officially became know as Depot Theatre of La Habra. The theatre's board of directors and all production committees are comprised of community volunteers. The Depot Theatre is one of the few community organizations which functions without a single paid staff member.
