Cabaret, the Steamboat Springs Arts Council’s annual fundraiser, is a live, comedic, never politically correct performance with the main goal to make people laugh! All local talent expresses their own writing and acting in these live action comedic skits.  The camaraderie of the annual bacchanalia makes gathers Steamboat society together after a long winter of frigid temperatures and waves of tourists. Ususally set in May, this year, Cabaret picks up the reins of comedy the first weekend in June. Why? Because we’re on “Steamboat Time.”

Every year, the fabulous theatre folk who put on Cabaret jump into the fray Their satirical pen spearing just about everyone, sometimes with a super-sharp point and others with more of a dull spoon.  This “spaghetti at the wall” approach allows the raw talent of our homegrown actors and singers to shine throughout each performance and, more often than not, leaving the audience with tears on their cheeks and aching sides from laughing so hard.

“There’s no better place to have a landmark show celebrating Steamboat for 32 years than our historic theater on Main Street,” said Mical Hutson, co-Executive Director of the Steamboat Springs Arts Council, speaking of Cabaret’s latest home, the historic Chief Theater on Lincoln Avenue.

And the Players Are….

With Kris Hammond on board as the MC with side-kick Scott Parker, a line-up of Steamboat’s finest including veterans Brad Kindred, David Jolly, and Patty Zimmer, and the Cabaret debut of Cookie Lockhart; this year promises more laughter at the foibles and follies of our small town.  Katy Kriz and Paula Salky, the co-directors, personal highlights so far:  Dogs, Subarus, Cowboys, and the Police Blotter; as well as the always funny City Council and even the Arts Council isn’t immune from satire this year!

We’ll all get to dance along to Willie Samuelson and the band, including the always-amazing Randy Kelley.

As Katy Kriz remarked, Cabaret is “one of the best times in the year for all of us locals to get together and laugh together at ourselves, our town and our country.  What a great way to ring in the Spring -  Whoops! Summer this year!  Steamboat Time!”
