OWEGO, N.Y. (WENY) -- The 1966 Tony Award winning musical, 'Cabaret" is coming to life at the Ti-Ahwaga Performing Arts Center in Owego. Performances are scheduled for this weekend and the next.

Cabaret is about Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, who falls for an English singer, Sally Bowles, at a German cabaret in the 1920's amidst the rise of the Third Reich, according to the theater groups website.

Some of the cast of 'Cabaret' told WENY what the story feels like to perform.

"It's awesome. It's a great show, and I think... we do such a... great job of telling the story," said Marla Wilson, who plays Kit Kat Klub Girl and others. "It's a roller coaster of emotions."

One cast member reflected on how it is to embody a show rooted in history.

"You are a witness to what has been going on," said Deirdre Nolis, who plays Erna Ludgwig, "This may not be exactly how it went in actual history, but, you don't want to disrespect the history."

'Cabaret' will be performed Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. both weekends (2/9, 2/10, 2/16, 2/17), as well as each Sunday (2/11 and 2/18) at 2 p.m. General Admission is $30 per person. There are discounts for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased here.

The cast says the show is not intended for young children. 'Cabaret' features themes of sexual assault, violence, abortion and some intense lighting sequences as well.
