Tickets for Cabaret XXXIV, 'Careers,' now on sale

RELEASED: Dec. 15, 2011

Cabaret XXXIV graphicEAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's department of music and theatre arts will present Cabaret XXXIV in January with eight performances and a cast of 150 performers. Tickets for this year's show, "Careers," are now on sale.

Performances for the popular show are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Jan. 19-21 and Jan. 26-28 in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center. Matinee performances will be at 2 p.m. Jan. 21 and Jan. 28.

Cabaret features student performers from ensembles in the music and theatre arts department as well as various small acts and solo performers. The concert will include performances by the Concert Choir, The Singing Statesmen, Women's Concert Chorale, UW-Eau Claire jazz ensembles and the University Symphony Orchestra.

Cabaret XXXIV will be accompanied by the Cabaret Orchestra, made up of members of the UW-Eau Claire jazz ensembles, directed by Robert Baca, professor of music, and Dr. Jeffery Crowell, associate professor of music; and the University Symphony Orchestra, directed by Nobuyoshi Yasuda, associate professor of music.

The Concert Choir and The Singing Statesmen are directed by Dr. Gary Schwartzhoff, professor of music. The Women's Concert Chorale is directed by Dr. Alan Rieck, associate professor of music.

Cabaret — the music and theatre arts department's largest annual production — has raised nearly $300,000 to support ongoing scholarships for music students in the voice/choral and jazz areas. The production began in 1978 to provide experience for music and theatre arts students in arranging and staging a variety show similar to ones they might encounter in their professional careers.

Nine student directors are involved in directing the musical variety show: seniors Tyler Anderson, Eagan, Minn.; Eric Frei, La Crosse; Alexander Jacques, Oneida; Jessica McIlquham, Chippewa Falls; Lauren Schell, Stoughton; Ryan Simmons, Green Bay; Elizabeth Sletten, Stillwater, Minn.; and Alison Wheeler, Viroqua; and junior Andrew Steffen, New Richmond.

Before the Friday and Saturday evening performances, a dinner buffet and cash bar will be available in The Dulany of Davies Center. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets for the dinner and show must be purchased in advance.

Tickets for the dinner and show are $35 for the general public and UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff, or $27 for those 62 and older, 17 and younger, and students with a university ID.

Show-only tickets are $20 for the general public and UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff, or $12 for those 62 and older, 17 and younger, and students with a university ID.

Patrons with show-only tickets may purchase a la carte deli and dessert items and beverages from a cash bar in the Council Fire Room one hour prior to each show, with prices ranging from $2.50-$6.50.
