Though now commonplace, acting was condemned in colonial times as "public lying," with offenders being yanked off the streets with novelty-sized shepherd's crooks.

The Downtown Cabaret Theatre swarms its Main Stage and Kid's Stage with musical performances and provides banquet-style tables for audiences to indulge in home-brought picnics. Frankenstein: The Halloween Hi-jinks Musical Comedy employs the techniques of British pantomime to spin a family-friendly caper about little orphan Heidi and her friend Frankie Stein attempting to outwit Count Dracula. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs infuses cabaret style into the classic fairy tale as it explores such time-honored themes as the search for true love and the importance of hiring a food taster. Audiences jump in on the fun of Sister Robert Anne's Cabaret Class, a one-woman show that deconstructs of the process of putting on a cabaret act, occasionally injecting humorous anecdotes, songs, and B12 shots into the performance.
Musicians AJ Swearingen and Jonathan Beedle channel their love for iconic folk music with the Simon and Garfunkel Retrospective, an acoustic tribute to the duo that features perennial favorites, deep cuts, and little-known ditties they hummed in the shower. Satisfaction: The Rolling Stones Experience cranks up the amps with an internationally renowned show that pays homage to the musical evolution of the world-famous British rock stars, and The Kingston Trio brings its signature folk sound to the theater, dazzling audiences with virtuosic musicianship and coordinating shirts.
