What Do We Do?
Cabaret Theatre’s General Board resolves to promote and create a diverse, friendly, welcoming, and professional community to celebrate student voices with open-mindedness & creativity. We will strive to create memorable, affective theatre—without any “qualifiers”—for & including new voices, those with less experience and those who may feel they’re “not supposed” to be involved in theatre. We will reach out to those who may not feel they can reach out to us, as well as to the larger Rutgers community to create an ethic of positivity, integrity, and innovation, so that our whole community may have the opportunity to call Cabaret home.
