Cabaret Theatre Presents: The 2015 Directors' Showcase

It is time for a beloved Cabaret tradition! It's the 2015 Directors' Showcase! 

Directors's Showcase is an annual special event in which first time directors are given a chance to put up a 15-20 minute piece to be performed at Cabaret Theatre. Throughout the month they have been in rehearsals, learning first-hand what it means to be a director. Now, they are ready to show the public the fruit of their labor! Come watch the directorial debuts of seven members of the student theatre community here at Rutgers!
