Many people will be familiar with the film version of the musical Cabaret, starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Grey.

Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, it is based around the nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub, and tells the story of a young English cabaret performer and her relationship with a young American writer.

Leading the 25-strong cast are Molly Suthers, from Maids Moreton, and Charlie Harris, from Greens Norton, in the leading roles of Sally Bowles and Clifford Bradshaw. Performers are from the school’s sixth form, supported by a production team of younger students in charge of lighting, sound and costume.

Director Stephen Datchler, musical director Simon Dearsley and choreographer Lucy Ashe have been working flat out on the production for the last nine weeks.
