Claiming to offer “glamour, sizzling songs and colourful characters” to those who attend their sessions, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) have confirmed they will be hosting Cabaret @ The Cremorne from June 11th to June 20th 2015.
Presented in association with Queensland Cabaret Festival, Cabaret @ The Cremorne features a line-up of local Brisbane cabaret artists in a series of brand new cabaret shows. In the spotlight will be some familiar faces as well as new stars on the rise. As the title implies, most of these events will be held in their Cremorne Theatre, at the other side of the venue from both the Lyric Theatre and Concert Hall.
Cabaret @ The Cremorne kicks off on Thursday 11 June with ‘I Might Take My Shirt Off’; a 60-minute one-man character-driven show of “a man hilariously stumbling his way through his first time ever on stage”. From the mischievous mind of one Queensland’s actor Dash Kruck (A Tribute of Sorts, Jesus Christ Superstar, [Title of Show], Spring Awakening), this performance features original music by Chris Perren (Nonsemble, Trollop). Daily cabaret performances will be run from June 11-13 and 17-20, with something new on each day. More information on these sessions can be found HERE.

As an art form Cabaret has enduring appeal, part of which is the short length performances in intimate spaces where the audiences have the chance to get to know the performers and fit in fun and quality live entertainment within their busy lives.
To create a program featuring the best in performance by local cabaret artists, QPAC has engaged one of the founders of the Brisbane and Queensland Cabaret Festivals and acclaimed Queensland cabaret singer, Alison St Ledger as guest curator. The seven performance series features talented local artists and perhaps will even reveal some cabaret stars in the making at the Open Mic Night.
We invite audiences to experience our Cremorne theatre’s transformation to true cabaret room style and enjoy the variety and vivacity on offer every night. With everything from a tribute to a Rock legend, and social satire to European cabaret songs and a mix tape based on a blockbuster Hollywood film; there is something to appeal to all tastes in this unique series.
