Flatlands Dance Theatre's production, Speakeasy, invites audiences into the mysterious underground of a 1920s cabaret. Through comedy, song, dance, and theatre, featuring various dance styles, live music, and cutting-edge, cabaret-style acts, the choreographers of FDT and guest artists take viewers on a wild ride led by our master of ceremonies, Grayson Bradshaw. Live music composed by David Box and played by a jazz ensemble will be featured with live dance from FDT. We invite viewers to sit back, have a drink, and be entertained. Welcome to the cabaret!

Speakeasy will be presented on Friday, November 30th and Saturday, December 1st at 7:30pm in the Firehouse Theatre at LHUCA (511 Avenue K).
