CREATING SOLO CABARET COURSE: Summer Classes

Are you going to be starved for a creative outlet over the Christmas break?   Will you desperately need some envigorating theatre experience?!

By request, there will be a final series of 2009 classes for the Creating Solo Cabaret course – this is your chance to escape the Christmas carols (thank goodness!) and make the most of that stagnant performance-less period (hooray!), so you can get your own solo showcase up and running for 2010.

Give yourself and your theatre career an early Christmas present, and get creative with cabaret this summer!

The six-week course at The Butterfly Club in South Melbourne includes a cabaret ‘Starter Pack’ and ‘What Next?’ information kits, week-by-week worksheets, three two-hour workshops of intensive cabaret developing, writing and editing, a two-hour song masterclass and a three-hour rehearsal session.

The curriculum culminates in two Performance Nights (with lighting technician and accompanist provided) where participating artists sell tickets and perform a fifteen-minute extract from their developing show as part of a professional paid cabaret experience, followed by a feedback session and discussion class.
