This fun musical stage adaptation of the classic book by J.M. Barrie and the beloved 1953 animated film is the story of the boy who wouldn't grow up. Young Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces that it's time for her to move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Never Land. Their adventure introduces them to the Lost Boys, mermaids, Tinkerbell and even the dastardly Captain Hook. It's a manageable 60 minutes in length, so the whole family can thrill to this modern version of a classic musical tale performed by young local actors between the ages of 5 and 18. Learn More

This is what I wrote on Facebook about this show:
We went to the opening night showing here in Sacramento of an old but great musical "CABARET" at The Grange Performing Arts Center at 38th and V Streets. My expectations were not too high (having seen the original both on Broadway and on film) but, wow, was I wrong. It was outstanding! The actors, the dancers, and the band did a magnificent job. I couldn't clap loudly enough for their great performances and attention to detail. Bravo!
In 1930 Christopher Isherwood, a young British writer, traveled to Berlin. It was city at the forefront of modernization and was rife with turmoil. Cabaret, based on Isherwood’s novel Goodbye to Berlin, is an exciting and tragically beautiful musical set against the economic crisis, political unrest, and a wild, hedonistic nightlife of Weimar Berlin. Set against the Nazi rise to power, it focuses on patrons and performers at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw.
The 1966 Broadway production became a hit: 8 Tony Awards (Best Musical, Composer and Lyricist, Director, Choreographer, Scenic Design, Costume Design, Supporting or Featured Actor and Supporting or Featured Actress) The Outer Critics Circle Award for Production, and The New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. It spawned a 1972 film starring Liza Minnelli as well as numerous subsequent productions
