Cabrini students of all majors present drama and comedy, working on stage and behind the scenes in crew, construction, set design, costume design, lighting/sound, etc., to produce top-quality entertainment while learning about the arts.
The Cabrini Theatre, located in Grace Hall, has sparked Cabrini students’ creativity for years. Cabrini Theatre has staged premieres, musicals, drama, improv, student work, and even produced original cast recordings.
This Fall season, Cabrini Theatre will proudly present Ken Ludwig's, Moon Over Buffalo.
Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950's. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five other actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.
Evening performances - November 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, & 17 at 8pm.
Matinee performances - November 11 & 17 at 2:00pm.
More information on purchasing tickets will be available in October.

“Preparing, rehearsing, and preforming in Cabrini’s theatre productions encompass some of my fondest memories while at Cabrini. Not only was it an enjoyable experience, but my public speaking skills improved and my confidence skyrocketed.
The cast and crew became a close-knit family, one I could count on inside and outside of the theatre. My experience with theatre only enhanced the well-rounded education of the heart that I received while at Cabrini.”
