“The Ethnic Cabaret” is an event that was started by alumni Robert Hartwell to feature the students of color in the Musical Theatre Department. It was revived two years ago by alumni Wonza Johnson and has now become a biennial performance that showcases the ethnic minorities in the department. As our musical theatre department becomes increasingly diverse, this performance allows these students of color to not only showcase their talents, but to perform works that were written specifically for them and about their stories. The performance is collaborative in nature, with underclassmen and upperclassmen working together to create a fully realized performance that includes choreography and ensemble vocals, and SMTD pianists, drummers, and guitarists.
