Tickets are on sale for Cabaret:
Come & send an officer & a guest

Tickets are on sale now for the CrimeStoppers theatrical gala in May .

Our wonderful supporters can buy tickets to attend that night. They are $75 apiece. Or they can pay to send one or more officers and their guests to the dinner and show as a tax-deductible gift.

Better still, they can do both - and come to Playhouse On The Square for good food, a performance of Cabaret, and the chance to mingle with more than 100 Memphis Police officers and significant others to personally say thanks for what they do to keep Memphis a safer place to live.

This year's Bobbye Weinberger CrimeStoppers Night At The Theatre event begins at 6 p.m. Friday, May 10 at the main-stage theatre at 66 South Cooper at Union Avenue. The food always is good. The curtain rises at 8 p.m. sharp. Seating on the main floor or balcony is open. In past year's some officers and their guests have attended a live theatrical show for the very first time, thanks to a donor.

Cabaret is a musical that first hit Broadway in 1952. It is about the Kit Kat Klub in 1931 Berlin. The beloved play tells the story of night-clubbers who run into the Nazi horrors taking over Germany.
