cab·a·ret (kabəˈrā,ˈkabəˌrā)

noun

a form of entertainment featuring music, song, and dance distinguished by a nightclub performance venue.

synonyms: entertainment, floor show, performance

What’s the environment?

Cabarets are halfway between a concert and a musical. Performers will be singing, acting and sometimes dancing onstage. But the show will also have a casual atmosphere. You are welcome to chat with your friends, or get up and order a themed drink.

What’s the show like?

Cabarets don’t traditionally have costumes, plots or sets. What do they have? An hour of wit, singing and charm.

Is cabaret the same as burlesque?

No. Burlesque, a well-established art form in itself, relies on scandalous humor, high glamour, and elaborate staging. We’ll be keeping our clothes on and singing songs from Wicked. It’s going to be awesome.

Do I need to get my ticket in advance?

Tickets will be available at the door, but we highly encourage you to get them in advance. Door tickets are cash only. Make it easy and reserve your tickets here.

What else do I need to know?

We recently launched our monthly cabaret series on the Third Thursday of every month in partnership with the ICON Lounge. Local talent will be featured in a cabaret-style evening of music, song, and dance on the ICON stage. A different theme will be featured each month, giving repeat audiences and newcomers a fresh experience each time they come to the cabaret.

The Good Night Theatre's next upcoming cabaret, "Villains: A Criminal Cabaret", is a celebration of bad-guy songs. From radio classics like "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" to Disney baddies, villains really do have the best songs. Good Night Theatre performers have selected songs to share with audiences from musicals, movies and pop music that showcase the villains we love to hate. 

Our first two cabarets sold out before the doors even opened. Reserve your spot at Good Night's next cabaret here and connect with us on Facebook and Instagram to be the first to know each month's theme.
