Drury University Theatre will present John Kander and Fred Ebb's musical classic Cabaret Wednesday through Saturday November 11-14 in Wilhoit Theater. Drury Theatre head Robert Westenberg directs the production, and he readily admits that this show, which has definitely earned its "classic" status since its 1966 debut, deals with rather dark subject matter with "satire, snark"--and style.

If you missed Missouri State University Theatre and Dance's recent production of the Moliere comedy Tartuffe, you'll have another rare chance to see this classic of the spoken theatre this month, as the Drury University Theatre Department presents their production of Tartuffe Wednesday through Saturday, April 22-25 at 7:30pm, with a 2:00pm matinee Saturday the 25th all in Wilhoit Theatre on the Drury campus. As resonant today as it was 350 years ago, this biting satire by Moliere lustily explores the machinations of a masterful and unrepentant hypocrite.
