Short+Sweet Cabaret is a festival of 10 minute cabaret pieces. We provide a professional platform for artists to create and present new works, while providing the audience with an intimate entertainment experience.

By merging theatre and music,  we create an atmosphere of inspiration and exploration. Stories, characters and songs are tested, risks are taken, and the audience participates in original and exciting projects.

We encourage all forms of cabaret - song, burlesque, magic, comedy, political - you name it!  But remember at Short+ Sweet you only have 10 minutes!

Short+Sweet Cabaret Festivals occur in Melbourne, Sydney, the Gold Coast, Brisbane with more festivals emerging every year.

Participants can gain professional recognition by winning awards such as:

  • Best Cabaret
  • Best Writing
  • People’s Choice Award
