Eighth Annual Cabaret at Faith Lutheran Church promises to burst with wit and comedy by Lorraine Glowczak

Faith Lutheran Church will host its Eighth Annual Cabaret on October 21 at 5:30 p.m. at 988 Roosevelt Trail in Windham. With a collection of hilarious and witty performances, along with assorted musical acts from talented local musicians and not so talented dancers, the audience will be entertained with a theme of Maine and its “Local Flav-ah and Cul-ah.”
“The skits and stories definitely fit a title of ‘A Little Local Cul-ah’ which is a play on the Maine
accent and theme that will include a home-made dinner and desserts,” stated Jane Field, Pastor of Faith Lutheran Church. The cabaret will include home-made Italian Pasta Fagioli soup, salad, rolls, cookies and brownies.

Cabaret style is a style of performance that became a popular form of entertainment in early 19th century France. It often includes a diverse collection of stories, music, theater and dance while the audience enjoys a dinner simultaneously. The concept of the cabaret made its way to the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with a recent resurgence in popularity.

The goal of Faith Lutheran Church’s cabaret event is twofold, “Cabaret night is meant to be a community event,” began Faith Lutheran Church Music Director, David Hansen. “It’s a fun evening full of laughter for the whole family while enjoying dinner at the same time - all for a reasonable price. It is less than a dinner and a movie.” 

The cost of the event is $15 a ticket for adults and $10 a ticket for children 12 and under.

The second objective for this year’s cabaret is to raise funds for local, national and international charities. “Proceeds [from this year’s event will] go to support the church with 10 percent of the funds designated for mission projects like the Monday Meals Program in Windham and the national and international disaster relief efforts of Lutheran Disaster Response,” stated Pastor Field.

The doors will open at 5:15 p.m. with dinner being served at 5:30 p.m. The musical and theatrical entertainment will begin soon after dinner is served.
