In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920's draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee's bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include "Willkommen," "Cabaret," "Don't Tell Mama" and "Two Ladies."

This show is Rated R.

Seats & Space
Seating options consist of carefully curated vintage couches, sofas, side chairs, and more comfort than you'll find at any other theater in the region.
  • Early Bird General Admission = Pick this for the cheapest price... we are rewarding folks for buying early... you'll still have your choice of non-reserved couches, arm chairs, and cabaret style upright chairs with small tables.
  • General Admission = The same as above, but normal price. ;-)
  • Dinner and a Show = This option gets you reservations at Goldfinch Tap & Eatery (next door to the theater) for 6:30 and reserved seats for the show.  Enjoy a great meal and don't worry about getting to the theater early.  

The audience space is thoughtfully arranged to make sure patrons are as comfortable in Giving Tree as they are in their own homes. Although more seats could be installed to accommodate larger audiences, Giving Tree is focused on seating quality vs. quantity, and limiting availability to place more comfortable “non-traditional” seating.


 We do not have regular hours that Giving Tree Theater will be open.  However, you can always contact us by email at or by phone at 319-536-0257 (if the phone isn't answered please leave a detailed message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.)  You can also send us a message on Facebook.  Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at the theater.
