Sweets and songs were on the program at Concordia’s inaugural dessert theatre, “Last Course Cabaret.”  A cast of 24 presented a revue of over 30 classical and modern musical theatre songs during three performances Oct. 21-23. The show featured numbers from the likes of Hello Dolly, Beauty and the Beast, Pippin, Jekyll and Hyde and Spamalot.

A buffet of treats and desserts was offered prior to each show.

“The dessert theatre idea resulted from attending a dinner theatre performance during a study tour last spring. It was exciting to observe the fellowship and energy generated from this added element, and I thought Concordia and our community would enjoy such an experience,” said Bryan Moore, head of the theatre department.

Financial support for the production was provided by Cattle National Bank.
