An evil Queen and her idiot son, a puppet King, a virtuous Princess and her jealous husband and a headless corpse. And it's a comedy! "Cymbeline" finds Shakespeare mixing elements of "Othello" and "King Lear" into a comedy of epic proportions that might have been invented by Disney.

Focusing on RACE MATTERS as an umbrella and exploring how all oppresion is interrelated, this theatrical event will feature published segments of the Ferguson Syllabus from the New Black Arts Festival and CSUEB student's dramatic/comedic testimonies of survival, perserverance and resilience. Come see how a community response circle can create as spontaneous, newly devised, unique art piece within each performance.

An interactive piece about race. Riffing off of the Ferguson Syllabus, this newly devised interactive piece will incorporate the audience into works from Baldwin, Lorde, Guillermo Gomez Pena, Rock, Paul Mooney, Cultlure Clash, West, Dyson, Davis, spoken word artists and CSUEB students.

Location: University Theatre

Welcome-come enter the sordid, yet enticing Kit Kat Club, presided over by a mysteriously raunchy master of ceremonies and the seductive Kit Kat Girls. Set in the midst of decadent pre-WWII Berlin, this 1998 version of the musical, revolves around the vibrant cabaret performer, Sally Bowles and her relationship with the closeted gay writer, Cliff Bradshaw. As the Nazis begin taking control of the German government, the atmosphere of the Kit Kat Klub and the lives of the characters begin to change dramatically. Cabaret became a landmark at its Broadway opening in 1967, winning eight Tony Awards and in 1972 was turned into an Academy Award winning movie. In 1998, a Broadway revival production of Cabaret combined elements of both the play and film, which went on to win 4 more Tony Awards.

Tickets are available to purchase online 3 weeks before opening night.
