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.
