Come to Cabaret's Weekend of Special Events!

No plans for this weekend besides hoping that the internet doesn't poop out on us again?? Good news - Cabaret Theatre has really fun things coming up that don’t require the internet at all in our Weekend of Special Events!


Friday, October 2nd - A Night of Shakespeare

Come on down to hear or perform all things written by or inspired by the great Willy Shakes! Whether it be his sonnets, scenes from any of his plays, original work inspired by him, or even covers of songs that reference his works, like Love Story by Taylor Swift, show us what you've got!


If you’re currently thinking, “To be or not to be?”, I can tell you the answer right now - it’s definitely the right choice TO BE there on Friday! [fun fact: my friends all told me that joke was lame but I typed it anyway]

Saturday, October 3rd - The R Factor

Are you a huge fan of talent competition shows on TV? We've got our own version here on the banks! Sign up to compete in The R Factor and get the chance to win 1 of 3 fantastic prizes. Hosted by Cab's very own talented and hilarious members, Abid Hassan and Matt Finnerty, you lucky Rutgers students can try your hand at wooing the 3 judges - a rep from Cabaret, Livingston Theatre Company, and College Avenue Players. Who needs Simon, Demi, or Britney when you've got Eddie, Brenna, and Scott?

Come get your William Hung on!

Sunday, October 4th - Disney: Outside the Lines

Have you ever thought, "Wow, I wish I could perform I'll Make A Man Out of You somewhere, I can definitely hit those low notes even though I'm an alto!" I DEFINITELY HAVE. If you answered yes to that question, then clear your Sunday night plans because now is your chance! Pick any disney song and maybe grab a couple friends to join you in singing any Disney song (or Broadway song) in any way you want!

Coming from a girl who was cast as Papa Ge in her 8th grade production of Once On This Island, I can vouch that portraying a different gender on stage is so much fun! 

Have I convinced you yet? Yes? Fantastic! Go on ahead and email our Special Event Coordinators,

Toni Pollitt ( and Jackie Malzone (

I'll be there throughout the weekend, and I can't wait to see y'all strut your stuff on Cab's stage! Until next time, internet peoples!
