Studio Season - Cabaret

Date: 
Thursday, November 12, 2020 - 7:00pm

The Studio Season goes online this year!

The Musical Theatre Certificate Cabaret has always been a space for students to bring whatever they want to the table. To showcase new repertoire, sing their favorite songs, and test out wild ideas that don't fit into our regular curriculum. This semester, it's more interesting than ever before, as performers take their songs into their living spaces. Enjoy a night of songs from our kitchens, our bathrooms, our bedrooms, and our backyards - our stage for the time being.
