The 30th Annual International Cabaret and Dinner is set for 4:00 p.m. April 9 in Stansbury Theatre, located in the Lawrence Music-Drama Center, 420 E. College Ave., Appleton. Lawrence International Student Organization is hosting the event

The cabaret is an occasion to celebrate life though music, dance, and cuisine from around the world. With that in mind, the theme for this year’s student-coordinated extravaganza is “Festival of Life.” This year’s show will include over 75 performers and 16 performances from every continent making it one of the biggest cabarets in recent memory at Lawrence. Popular dances such as the subcontinental dance, the belly dance from the Middle East, and dances from Africa are back again this year, along with new dances such as the Cossack dance from Russia, and the cha-cha.

An international dinner will follow the performance at Lucinda’s in Colman Hall. The menu includes a variety of dishes from the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and Africa, making it an excellent opportunity to experience a variety of dishes from around the world.

Tickets are $7 for the show only, and $12 for dinner and the show. Tickets are available at the Lawrence University Box Office, located in the Music-Drama Center, or by phone at 920-832-6749, beginning March 27.
