Cabaret troupe struts its stuff

The Ramshackle Cabaret put on a lively performance Saturday night to nearly 300 cheering Sitkans. Everyone packed into Allen Hall to see a range of acts, from burlesque to magic tricks to feats of strength. The troupe made $7,000 in ticket and alcohol sales, all of which will be donated to Planned Parenthood. Zac Mayberry was the MC and spent the second part of the show in size 15 patent leather heels and a black corset. Although some of his shtick was too risque to repeat, this audio postcard gives you a taste of what the evening was all about.
