Christ the King School Cabaret and Auction

The 25th annual Christ the King School Cabaret and Auction will take place April 6 and 7 at 6 p.m. at the school in Burlington. 
 
In 1993 Aida Cadrecha began Dinner Theater as an opportunity to celebrate students’ talents and raise money for the school. Each year it got bigger and bigger, and Dinner Theater officially became Cabaret when the popularity of the event and demand for tickets no longer allowed for any space for a sit down meal. 
 
Twenty-five years later, Cadrecha is still the “Queen of Cabaret,” despite having officially retired as Christ the King librarian last year.
 
“Cabaret is one of those wonderful community events that has an almost magical quality to it,” said Principal Angela Pohlen. “It’s a tradition that every family who has gone through the school in the last 25 years can share, and it bonds us. Everyone has a favorite memory of Cabaret, and it has withstood the test of time because of its value to the community.”
 
This year more than 1,000 parents, family members and friends are expected to attend the two-night event with entertainment provided by pre-school through eighth-grade students. The theme will be “Motown” and each class has a chance to present a choreographed dance and show off their talent. Individual students also have a chance to step into the limelight and share their talents. 
 
Cabaret is an opportunity for students to share something they work on outside of school, such as gymnastics, violin, piano or singing.   
 
Last year’s cabaret and auction raised more than $30,000 to support the students, programs and mission of the Catholic school.
 
The auction of fun, useful and creative items advances the mission of the school as proceeds from the donated prizes will directly benefit the children at Christ the King School. Past proceeds have funded such things as improvements to the technology lab and makerspace and new books for the library.
 
All donations will be exhibited on the nights of the auction, and all donors will be listed in the program for both nights. 
 
Any donations can be sent to: Christ the King School, 136 Locust Street, Burlington, VT 05401. For donations to be picked up, contact Jon Hughes, advancement director, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 802-862-6696.
