Word Plays at the Cabaret
Our Fourth Season: 2017

Sundays at 2:00 pm   $10 (at the door only, cash/check)

The new-old art of storytelling is a blend of theater, stand-up comedy, reminiscence around the campfire, folk research, history buzz, ancient myth and midnight confession. It's always fascinating and always a surprise.

Over a dozen performers will be telling during this season. At each Word Play, a different group of performers tell rarely heard contemporary and traditional stories celebrating the human spirit. You will discover that Word Plays is a shared experience between the audience and the performer, combining the intensity of a solo performer with the intimacy of a face-to-face conversation.

Each show has its own theme where each story told relates to that theme.
