A Unique Opportunity for Performers: CABARET MASTERCLASS

On Tuesday April 20…

 Want to do a better audition?

 Give a better performance?

 Create a better show?

Want to learn how to prepare a song for cabaret?

 

Choosing and workshopping cabaret songs is one of the things new performers seem to find difficult and stressful when creating their own shows.   On Tuesday April 20 at 8.00 pm we’ll be running another of the popular cabaret masterclasses at The Butterfly Club: a chance not only to hear useful techniques for selecting and arranging cabaret repertoire, but also see performers in action analyzing, workshopping and performing their songs in progress.

The class is designed for:

1. Singers developing audition songs or looking to improve their performance skills

2. Performers workshopping new material for upcoming shows

3. New artists who are interested in finding out about cabaret

 

If you’ve been interested in the Creating Solo Cabaret course, but are not ready to take the plunge, this is a great chance to come along and see how a cabaret workshop is run.  

Plus, you only pay normal Club ticket prices ($22/$17) rather than class fees.   Bargain!

This is an unusual opportunity to see cabaret creating in action!

From the 2007-2009 graduates…

“I’ve always wanted to do a course about putting on a cabaret show but I didn’t imagine that it would be so successful on a personal level.”

“Most courses don’t live up to expectations, but this one exceeded them.”

“I found the course to be very useful and user friendly.   I particularly enjoyed and appreciated working with Kim, drawing upon her vast skill and knowledge of the genre, and of the mechanics of writing, scripting, and executing a show.   Awesome.”

“A brilliant course for everyone who wants to do a cabaret show.”
