OzCabaret ...our story

Chapter I

Once upon a time, back in 2007, three lovely ladies and one tall young man packed up their lives and headed to the humble seaside city of Mackay in QLD to seek their fortunes and study the craft of performing arts at the Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It was here that the four became friends and after three years of honing their skills they each left to find their way in the big wide world. Then something miraculous happened..

 

Chapter II

In 2012 the four found themselves in the same corner of Europe (the Netherlands to be exact) and, while sampling some vino one evening, decided that they should combine their passions (vino+theatre+music) and create something that the world had never seen before.

And so it came to be that vino + theatre + music + eachother =

Chapter III

The four worked hard on creating their very own spicy brand of interactive wine-tasting entertainment. They showcased their work in the Netherlands before moving to the UK and testing it out on the English crowd, all the while working hard to improve and learn and be the best that they could be.

They even flew their old CQCM singing teacher, Kim Kirkman, over to add his famed spit and polish to their work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter IV

As fate would have it, Mark Fawcett from the MECC stepped up and offered the troupe an amazing opportunity to help celebrate the centres 25th Jubilee birthday by presenting the Australian premier of the Champagne Cabaret.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The night was a great success with fun and bubbles enjoyed by all.

The troupe then went on to perform an incredible sell-out season at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, receiving love from audiences and rave reviews from critics.

"GRIPPING AND EMOTIONAL IN ITS DRAMATIC HIGHS AND LOWS, THE MESSAGE BEING THAT CHAMPAGNE IS FOR ALL OF LIFE, HAPPY AND SAD. THERE'S A CHARM AND PERSONAL SPACE ENTERED THAT GIVE THIS DRAWING ROOM EXPERIENCE GENUINE HEART AND SOUL.” Adelaide Now

“THE BLEND OF VIOLIN, ACCORDION AND PIANO AND POLISHED VOCAL HARMONIES BRINGS THIS SHOW TO LIFE…IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A TASTEFUL TASTE OF WINE AND SONG LOOK NO FURTHER.” All About Entertainment

 

Chapter V

Here's where you come in...

We have a tour of Europe in the pipeworks, starting with the world renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will then be heading to the Netherlands where we have been selected to be a part of the Amsterdam Fringe Festival and also the Best of the Fest in Eindhoven before making our way to England for the London Wine & Cheese Festival. We have also been invited to perform at the Macau Fringe Festival, but we have to get through this bumper schedule before we can even start thinking about taking up this great opportunity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We're very excited to be making our debut at these wonderful festivals and to be spreading a little Aussie culture around the globe. It has been predicted by the Scotsman of the Edinburgh Evening Times that OzCabaret will be one of the top 10 picks of the Edinburgh Fringe this year: http://www.scotsman.com/edinburgh-evening-news/latest-news/edinburgh-festival-fringe-top-10-picks-1-2994355

Not bad out of over 3000 other shows presenting at Edinburgh this year!

 

Chapter VI

...is yet to be written because we need your help!

We promise to keep up the hard work and represent Aussies in the only way we know how, but we need some financial support to make it happen.

It is every young performers dream to play at the Edinburgh Fringe, the worlds biggest and most renowned arts festival, and with your help our dreams can come true.

The costs of getting us through this tour are unspeakable, but just to give you an idea of where it all goes here's a snapshot:

€2000 - Festival applications and licensing

€3660 - Accommodation

2500 - Production costs

5000 - Contractor fees

6000 - Travel

4000 - Promotions and PR

= a grand total of a house deposit and then some!

 

But as the great Ella Fitzgerald said, "don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, you can't go wrong".

No donation is too small, it all counts!

If you are unable to contribute financially...FEAR NOT!

You can help spread the word far and wide of our mission you will still be helping us on our way to acheiving our dreams!
