Bill Kenwright's multi-award-winning production of Cabaret is back, directed by National Theatre Artistic Director Rufus Norris.

With a score that includes Cabaret, Maybe This Time, Money Makes The World Go Round and Willkommen, Cabaret is one of John Kander and Fred Ebb's greatest scores garnering 8 Oscars, 7 BAFTAs and 13 Tony Awards.

Based on Christopher Isherwood's novels, Cabaret is set in 1931 Berlin, a sexually charged haven of decadence in which the legendary Sally Bowles performs at the infamous Kit Kat Klub.

Cabaret is choreographed by Javier De Frutos, designed by Katrina Lindsay. Cabaret has a book by Joe Masteroff, music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb. Cabaret is based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.

Kara Lily Hayworth and John Partridge

This tour of Cabaret is to star Kara Lily Hayworth (Sally) and John Partridge (Emcee). Anita Harris will play Fraulein Schneider.

Kara Lily Hayworth recently won rave reviews across the country for her portrayal of Cilla Black in Cilla the Musical, after she was discovered by Bill Kenwright during the show’s nationwide TV auditions.

Kara says, “I owe a huge amount to Bill Kenwright! Back in 2017 when I first decided to go to the open auditions for Cilla, I had no idea how much my life would change. I had been working professionally for a long time, but this was a real turning point in my career, and I am so grateful to Bill for taking a chance on me. And now for him to trust me to take on another leading role (my absolute dream role) I feel so unbelievably lucky!”

Starring as the enigmatic Emcee is John Partridge, winner of Celebrity MasterChef in 2018, well known to TV audiences as EastEnders’ Christian Clarke, and one of West End theatre’s most prolific leading men (A Chorus LineChicago, and La Cage Aux Folles). Further casting to follow shortly.
