New Minowa Players Announces Cast for “A Quarantine Cabaret”
New Minowa Players is pleased to announce the cast for our 2020 Young People’s Production, “A Quarantine Cabaret.“ The show will be presented virtually from August 7th to the 14th on the New Minowa Players website. Those choosing to be in the virtual audience are free to access the recording anytime between August 7 and August 14. A link to watch the show will be available on our website and on the New Minowa Players Facebook page and Instagram account.

The Young People’s Production is New Minowa Players’ annual offering featuring youth ranging in age from those entering middle school to those graduating college. This year, and often, the directors and musical director are also within that age group. Directors Indigo Fish and Hallie Johnson, along with music director Sam Wilson, had hoped to be directing “Little Shop of Horrors” now, but because of precautions surrounding COVID-19, an online performance will replace a staged show this year. Therefore, Fish, Johnson and Wilson will be directing “Little Shop of Horrors” next year, August 2021. This year “A Quarantine Cabaret” will replace the originally-planned show. All rehearsals and the performance are online.
“A Quarantine Cabaret” will be a series of musical numbers performed concert style. Songs are from a variety of musical theater shows. Those performing include Eliana Brodbeck, Davis Coppola, Indigo Fish, Erik Johnson, Hallie Johnson, Leila Johnson, Greta Jones, Alex Kane, Dylan Muhlbauer, Sarah Mumford, Kaj Spencer-Berg, Abby Trewin, and Sam Wilson.
“A Quarantine Cabaret” is sponsored by A&J Petersburg Agency, Bluff Country Bernedoodles, Decorah Bank and Trust, Family Table Restaurant, Gallery of Tops, Iroc Web Design Services, Pizza Ranch, Rick and Sheryl Scheffert, Sogo Snacks and JoAn Stevenson and Steven Nelson.
