The Crossroads: A Prison Cabaret is a musical satire. Perfect for a fall evening excursion out to Metchosin, with mist, moon and the call of owls accompanying you, this original production inspired by such classic musicals as Cabaret and West Side Story, and film's such as Tim Burton's Corpse Bride should not be missed! Complete with live music, innovative dance numbers and 26 performers, The Crossroads: A Prison Cabaret tells a story of a world underground where banished souls from the ages are trapped deep under the crossroads outside of town. They are kept entertained by a host of supernatural beings until they can find the key to their entrapment. Intolerance, fear and the need for inclusion are the main thematic elements that this satire addresses in a highly inventive, sure-to-surprise and delightful way.
