one person at a time​​
AND HOW DO WE KNOW?  WE SPEAK FROM EXPERIENCE.
THEATRE CHANGED US.

Two Men
A lot of people have come and gone since Cabaret started in 1979 and all have contributed to the project in some way or other...a few have always been there when they were needed to help mount a show.  But only two have withstood the test of time.  John Carosella since the beginning and John Horanic who came aboard seven months into the project.  THOSE TWO MEN...only two... have nurtured the dream through all  the years.  Why?  Why should they have bothered to keep their dream of having a home to replace the "barn home" they lost in 1985?  Why didn't they simply call it quits when the two of them loaded the last bit of theatre equipment out of the barn after working steadily all night long to do so?  Why?
 
Their answer:   "Theatre saved our lives and we have seen it save the lives of a lot of other people over the years.   Yes, we love creating  and presenting shows to the public, but we love even more the invisible and unmeasurable good it does for the audiences who experience the power of theatre  and the theatre practitioners who work hard to produce that power.  Here's a bit of our story."

Some 2016 Tony Award Nominees agree that theatre can change lives.   You might want to hear what they have to say.

Let's ​​
Begin
the 
Transformation!

Let us take you to places
you've never been before...

Why?  Why, Why, Why, Why, Why?

"I have often said that New York  City is obviously the Mecca of theatre--after all, it's Broadway, the Great White Way--the place where every actor wants to end up.

And I really believe that to be true.  But I also believe that  the SALVATION OF THEATRE is out here in the boonies...in the small towns and cities of the nation.  Without what we do out in the hinterlands of the country, the New York Theatre would wither and die. 

We nourish Broadway.  We grow the actors and technicians and the audiences that the New York Theatre NEEDS in order to sustain itself.  This is where  most actors begin to learn their crafts.  And this is where audiences are developed and become appreciative. 

The "big time" theatre would not exist without the "small-time" theatres all over the country.  So, if theatre is important, then what we do here Latrobe, Pennsylvania--in Smalltown, America is important, too.  We are the greenhouse where the seed is planted and the young plants grow and mature to bear fruit.  We are the beginning. 

THE CABARET THEATRE is dedicated to providing a unique place where artists, technicians, and audiences get a good, solid foundation in this most important of the arts--theatre."
--John J. Carosella, Artistic Director
