Cats, Canines and Cabaret: My Friend the Vet
A bassett-hound superstud, a poodle très chic, a stressed-out guinea pig, a psychopathic cat, and a menagerie of man’s best friends are lining up this month tell us what they’re really thinking – in song! Performer, writer and renowned singing teacher Sally Collyer has been promising us this show ever since graduating from the very first Creating Solo Cabaret course in 2007, so forget talking to the animals: these puppies sing!
Set in a vet’s surgery (er, I mean “a house of well-being…), My Friend the Vet promises laughter, tears and perhaps just a touch of cold-blooded terror as our pets show us the world through their eyes.
For everyone who loves animals – and who doesn’t?
Written and performed by Sally Collyer (The Price of Genius), and featuring Simon Bruckard on piano

Melbourne Cabaret Festival Heats Up
Tickets are on sale for next month’s Melbourne Cabaret Festival, and the line-up is looking exciting. No-one offends with the panache of The Beautiful Losers, while The Petticoat Soiree (written and directed by the stunning Alistair Smith) is bringing vaudeville back to town. Then there’s the irreverent wit of Yana Alana, the ever delicious Sammy J, the unexpected Eddie Perfect, and the irrepressible Toni Lamond for starters…
With forty performances in four days, it’s going to be non-stop cabaret at Emerald Hill in South Melbourne in July. Sell-out shows are guaranteed, so check out what’s on, and book quick!
