WICHITA — Cabaret Oldtown's current production will end this weekend as planned, but it's unclear when the next show may be.

"We're not sure what our future holds," says owner Christi Moore.

"There's no decisions that have been made yet."

Moore says some personal changes are forcing her to make a professional change, too.

"I have spoken to potential buyers of the theater," she says. "I have reached out to others who have expressed interest in the past."

Moore leases space for the downtown theater at 412 E. Douglas.

After "Sweet Southern Comfort Rock 'n' Roll" ends this weekend, Moore says the theater will take a hiatus.

In 2005, she bought the business from founder Christine Tasheff.

"It's my hope that it can continue, and I would love to be a part of it in some way," Moore says. "At this point I'm not sure if it's going to be a situation where I manage the theater under new ownership or if I would be leaving altogether."
