    Book by Joe Masteroff, based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.
    Music by John Kander. Lyrics by Fred Ebb

    The twelve-time Tony Award winning musical masterpiece, Cabaret is loved for iconic songs such as “Cabaret” and “Maybe This Time” and its sophisticated blending of great music and dance with a multilayer storyline. Set in 1931 Berlin, Cabaret contrasts love, optimism, and naiveté with organized bigotry, and individual and societal lust for power. It is a timeless and powerful musical!

  6. Civic Live: Mark Smeby - Hope of Christmas

    20 Civic Center Dr SE
    Rochester, MN 55904
    Call: (507) 282-8481

    Civic Live: Mark Smeby - Hope of Christmas
    December 10, 2014 at 7:00pm

    Come celebrate the Hope of Christmas as Nashville-based singer Mark Smeby brings his 4th annual Christmas tour back to Rochester on December 10. It promises to be a great time of reflection and inspiration as Smeby shares familiar holiday classics, as well as piano-based, inspirational, original tunes.

    Smeby was seen on national television when he co-starred in an episode of ABC TV’s hit series “Nashville,” playing the booker of bands at the hip East Nashville music venue, The 5 Spot. He also played the romantic lead in "1 Message," an inspirational motion picture about the ravages of breast cancer, serving as a "saintly mentor" to the lead character. He’s completed three successful years of his "Hope of Christmas Tour," bringing light to the true meaning of the season across the country. This is in addition to various tours throughout the US to share his songs in concert; from New Hampshire to Washington, from Minnesota to Florida. "I know that Christmas is not the happiest time of year for a lot of people, in spite of the enthusiastic celebration going on around them. The holidays can be a glaring reminder of relatives who have died, relationships that have ended, and disappointment with life's circumstances."
    After growing up in Minnesota (he’s a big Twins fan!), Smeby has resided in Nashville for the past 21 years. Since 2010 he has released four CDs, including Pilgrim Man (and its powerful, anthemic title track), Christmas, Hymns For The Journey, and the brand new, Shining Through.

    Rochester, MN 55904
    Call: (507) 282-8481

    Fired Up is a staged reading of a play written by Cordelia Anderson along with cast members Michael Frear, Tim Hammond, Guadalupe Lopez, Shanna McCann, Chris Stark, and Stacey Chambers.

    Fired Up is the story of trauma, resilience, hope, transformation and the burning need to end the sexual abuse and exploitation of children.
    Fired Up consists of powerful, distinctive, personal stories that tug at the heart while showing the ripple effects that touch everyone.
    Fired Up shows the multiple costs of sexual abuse to the survivor, the family, and to society.
    Fired Up weaves together many stories to shed light not only on individual trauma, but on the frequency of abuse, and calls for a collective action to end it.
    Fired Up attempts to move audiences to ponder:
    “Why are there so many child victims?”
    “Why are there so many–primarily males–who sexually offend?”
    “Why do we focus so many resources on responding after the harm is done, or after a crime is committed, without prioritizing prevention to end it?”
    “What can I do to be part of the solution?”

    Ticket: Adult $15, Senior & Student $10. On sale now!
