The Muppet Cabaret

Thursday, July 20, 7 – 8 pm

An original cabaret inspired by Jim Henson and The Muppets. This self-referential style of variety-sketch comedy combined with classic songs will be a delight for the entire family, especially if you are a Muppets aficionado. The Muppet Cabaret is based on an original cabaret conceived by Edward Juvier. So what is this show? An hour-long blend f your favorite songs and comedy. Totally PG. Fun for everyone. Are there actual muppets? No! But there are some great actors and singers who are embodying the muppet characters.
