Cabaret opened in Nelson last night before an enthusiastic audience.

Talent worth taking in

As you can see from the fabulous photos taken of the dress rehearsal, the Capitol Theatre is once again buzzing with quality local theatre.

As you can see from the fabulous photos taken of the dress rehearsal, the Capitol Theatre is once again buzzing with quality local theatre.

Cabaret has kicked off in Nelson and based on the images in today’s paper and last night’s energetic opening night, it’s going to be a performance you’re not going to want to miss.

The talent on stage this weekend cuts well beyond “community theatre.” From the talented actors to the musical arrangement to the stellar set design, this is high quality entertainment. If a theatre lover from the big city was plopped into a Capitol Theatre seat for this performance without knowing anything about where they were, it’s safe to say they would be shocked to know this kind of talent exists in a community of just over 10,000.

It’s really no surprise to locals. KHAOS and Jesus Christ Superstar are just a couple of recent performances that played to sold-out houses, showcasing the incredible theatre scene in the Nelson area.

What provides an extra shot of awesome for the Cabaret run is that it’s being spurred by someone raised on that very stage. Sydney Galbraith’s talents have been showcased at the Capitol since she was a kid. Now with a young family of her own, Galbraith is producing and starring in Cabaret. It’s certainly not the first time this has happened, but it does provide an important reminder just how important the seeds planted at the local theatre can be.

Congratulations to all involved in the Cabaret production on a job well done. We’re looking forward to taking it in this weekend and excited for what local theatre talents will hatch in the future.
