Mankato, Minn. – Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Department of Theatre & Dance will open the 2021-2022 Studio Season with “I Am a Camera” in the Andreas Theatre at the Early Center for the Performing Arts.
Adapted from Christopher Isherwood’s “The Berlin Stories,” and the basis for the musical “Cabaret,” this play is a snapshot of a struggling young writer’s life as he experiences the events occurring around him in 1930s Berlin and foreshadows the looming catastrophe of the Nazi era. Chris comes to the aid of Sally Bowles, a singer/actress who works in a local nightclub, and the two develop a platonic relationship despite her Bohemian existence.
Following CDC recommendations and University policy, all patrons are required to wear a face covering for the duration of their time on campus. Students have the option to perform masked or unmasked at this time and all unmasked performers will be following the University COVID safety guidelines.
