Creating Cabaret Course

“Queenie van de Zandt has a knack of bringing together the best in the business to be a part of her courses...What an amazing opportunity to work with the leading lights of the cabaret scene to develop your own cabaret show.  I wish this had been around when I was starting out!”
David Campbell OAM

Did you know that Cabaret is one of the most sought-after artforms being programmed at Festivals and Arts Centres in 2021/2022? Cabaret shows have traditionally small casts, small budgets and audiences are already socially distanced, sitting as they do at spread out tables – so they make the perfect post-pandemic offering. At the same time, thousands of performing artists are out of work and looking to create their own opportunities. All of this makes cabaret a low-risk show for venues to program, creators to create & audiences to go to – it’s a win/win/win. So, there has never been a better time for you to create that show you’ve been thinking about for years!

The Creating Cabaret Course is a unique online course, which will teach you how to write, produce and perform your own cabaret show.

Curated and led by one of Australia’s most renowned cabaret performers - Queenie van de Zandt, with masterclasses by the who's who of the Australian cabaret scene - performers, directors, producers, festival artist directors, writers and musical directors, all of whom have the skills and knowledge to set you on a successful cabaret career.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to work with Australia’s leading lights of cabaret and create your own cabaret show, ready to pitch to major festivals and venues for inclusion in their 2021/2022 seasons.

“I absolutely loved the CWW last year - it was so inspiring to be around such brilliant, hard-working tutors and wonderful like-minded students. Thanks to the guidance from many of the tutors on the course, I performed my solo show “Natural Habitat” last year at Sydney Fringe Festival and am about to perform it again as an official selection of Sydney Comedy Festival’s “Fresh! Comedy” Program. I couldn’t have done it without all the amazing support and knowledge I gained from CWW!!”
