Announcing our Back-to-School Revue – Prostaff Application Now Available!

We are pleased to announce Cabaret Theatre and The Livingston Theatre Company's 2017 Back-to-School Revue: "If I Stay: A Musical Revue," written by Maya Mitterhoff and Ajit J. Mathews and directed by Maya Mitterhoff.

Told in a series of vignettes through the use of hyper-contemporary musical theatre, this revue embodies the feelings of restlessness that are within each of us at different moments in our lives, from the rush of driving towards nowhere to the yearning to be with the ones you love. Both companies are very excited to be leading the 2017-2018 season with this production, and now you have an opportunity to be involved! The production staff application is now open until Sunday, June 18th.
