Madison Taylor (11) is about to go to her first rehearsal of the cabaret show. She feels excited because this show will be something different than from the past. Yet she’s also nervous to see how it will all turn out. As she receives the sheet music, she smiles as she scans over all of the songs she will be in. Then, she and all the other girls at the rehearsal sit up and begin to to sing the songs that will be in the next fall show. This year, the Fine Arts Department is changing it up by doing a fall cabaret show instead of a full musical. This will be the first cabaret show at the school. Taylor cannot wait to be a part of this new experience during her senior year.

A cabaret is a show that consists of acts and musical numbers from different productions. The cabaret is going to be a new thing that the school is doing in the fall, but there will still be a regular musical in the winter.

The students who auditioned had to learn a dance and a song posted on Google Classroom. The song tracks were different according to voice parts so that the students could find a song that fit their range. There was also an additional, optional audition the next day where students could perform an act that they wanted in the show. Taylor and a group of friends auditioned with a tap song and dance called “Anything Goes.” This song and dance is one of the numbers that will be in the show.

Another student in the cabaret, Maddie Wong (9), excitedly awaits the upcoming show. This will be her second musical here. She is going to be in many chorus numbers, including “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from Hairspray.

“I am excited to do something different so that I can experience being part of the musicals and [cabaret] shows,” Wong said.

Some acts that will be in the show are from musicals such as  Hamilton, Sister Act, Annie, Book of Mormon, Into the Woods, and Wicked. While a majority of the show will be group numbers, some students will have their own solo act.

The first rehearsals will be in early May. There will be some other rehearsals in the early spring and possibly even in the summer, but the bulk of them will be in the fall since the class is a block. Every fall musical, and in this case the cabaret show, is a third block class.

Tanner Cole (9) is also about to be a part of his second musical. He will be in many of the acts, including some from Hamilton, and cannot wait for the musical practices to begin.

“The Hamilton ones are fun because of hip hop and the dances are probably going to be pretty fast,” Cole said.

One of the perks of doing a cabaret show is that there can be numbers from musicals that have not released their rights yet. When a musical releases their rights, it means that theater groups can perform the whole show in its full form. With the cabaret show, there will only be one or two numbers from a musical because of unreleased rights.

Overall, the fall cabaret will be a positive experience for the performers, directors, and audience. The whole cast and crew cannot wait to perform the show this September. It will be something new and different, but also very exciting.

For the incoming seniors, such as Taylor, this will be their second-to-last musical. They are becoming the leaders of the program and will carry on the legacy of the BK Fine Arts.

Taylor will be in a couple of tap numbers and in some other chorus numbers. She has been active in the musicals since 2017 when she was a freshman. She played Chip in the school’s production of Beauty and the Beast. The upcoming cabaret show will be her sixth musical.

“I fell in love with the people and then fell in love with the program,” Taylor said.  

As Taylor puts on her tap shoes and gets ready to go on stage, she smiles at the fact that she is performing with her peers once again. The lights go on and the show begins as the audience anxiously awaits to see the first Fall Cabaret.
