Drive-in cabaret hopes to bring smiles during the pandemic

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - If you’re looking for a date night idea or just to get out of the house in a few weeks, Independent Musical Productions is now preparing for their drive-in cabaret.

IMP Huntsville Treasurer Susan Stricklin said instead of canceling their performance due to the pandemic, they’ve had to get creative.

Audience members will now park their cars in a parking lot, turn on the radio, and watch.

Stricklin said they hope to bring smiles to the people of Huntsville, especially now that so many need a little cheering up.

“Art is so important to the community, and I think it’s really given us a new connection to do these things,” Stricklin said. “Our food truck has been great, and they come and they don’t demand any minimum they just come. So we have had a lot of gifts and support.”

Stricklin said their next performance is set for Aug. 9.

Tickets will be $17 each for the first two people in the car. Each additional occupant will be charged $15.

Stricklin said there is also a small section for people to sit. She said those seats are limited due to following social distancing guidelines.
