Local student heads to the stage at ECU

A Poteau High School graduate will soon see her name in lights, Micah Hobday of Poteau will star as LuLu in a collegiate production of "Cabaret" which opens Thursday at East Central University. As German society was sliding toward the Nazis in the 1930s, its popular cabarets mixed decadent entertainment with controversial political themes, a combination mirrored in the musical The Tony Award-winning production will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday [FEB.18] in the Ataloa Theatre in the Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Theatre. Because of suggestive musical numbers and risqué acts, ECU warns that “Cabaret” may not be appropriate for those under age 15.
