- SYDNEY CABARET
Australia’s next generation of cabaret superstars will launch their careers at The Sydney Cabaret Competition: Grand Final hosted by ‘International Queen of Cabaret’ Trevor Ashley.
On the night, one lucky winner will receive a career changing prize and the chance to perform at the festival’s closing night. Our judging panel of distinguished international entertainers will also select a runners up and the audience will choose their favourite to receive an award from a total prize pool valued at over $5,000.
With a diverse range of experience, styles and sounds, the competition finalists will already have impressed a panel of judges to progress to this final, including Helpmann Award winner Matt Lee, Broadway World Award winner Catherine Alcorn, Australian cabaret treasures Phil Scott, Margi De Ferranti and producers Mark Sutcliffe and Les Solomon.
Entries are still open for cabaret and musical theatre performers looking for their next big leap and a cash prize at sydneycabaretcompetition.com.au where tickets for the Heats on Sunday June 16, 23 and 30 are also available now.
Archery productions are proud to present the first annual Sydney Cabaret Competition in 2019.
Our aim is to find and foster cabaret superstars.
Cabaret has a rich history in Australia – and this competition follows in the remarkable footsteps of our friends at Your Management International and The Australian Cabaret Showcase, who discovered a decade of artists who’ve all gone on to brighter futures in the industry, including Tom Sharah, Melody Beck, Alexis Fishman, Toby Francis, Sheridan Harbridge, Marika Aubrey and Gillian Cosgriff.
Cabaret is a funny beast – we know it combines any mixture of singing, drama, performance, comedy or art – but executed perfectly, leaves the audience wondering if ‘cabaret’ can really be defined if each performance is so different.
It can be about anything – relationships, memoir, satire, politics, sex, aliens?
Which is why it’s our privilege to find…excuse our lack of a more unique phrase….Australia’s next Cabaret Star and first annual winner of the Sydney Cabaret Competition.
