LA CROSSE, Wis. – Enjoy a medley of more than 70 hits from 1970 and 1971 as an outstanding cast of local singers and dancers presents Cabaret and Cocktails Wednesday, July 21–Saturday, July 24 in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center FSPA Lobby.

“Audience members will travel back in time to hear a wide array of musical styles from 1970–71 and revisit some of the crazy fashion trends in this fun show that will include something for everyone,” said Viterbo faculty member Nancy Allen, director of the production. “I had a wonderful time researching and designing this show. I think people will be surprised how many great and enduring songs come from those years.”

Cabaret and Cocktails will feature large group numbers, and several solos, duets, trios, and quartets.

The cast is comprised of Anna Benthin, Maureen Breuer, Katie Fries, Doug Mahlum, Vernon Shaw, Brad Seebach, Carter Semb, Kim Shively, Kayla Shue, Joan Waniger, and Rick Waniger. There is a 40-year age range from the youngest to oldest member.

“Each of the cast members was invited to be a part of the show based on their reputation and great past performances,” said Viterbo faculty member Nancy Allen, the director of the production. “They are all volunteers, and I am blessed to work with such talented people.”

The performances are a fundraiser for Viterbo University’s Platinum Edition and Diamond Edition show choirs. A cash bar will be available each evening. Tickets are $20 and are available at the Viterbo box office, by calling 608-796-3100, or at www.viterbo.edu/tickets.
