Short+Sweet Cabaret Illawarra 2019

Short+Sweet Illawarra is proud to introduce CABARET into its 2019 season, performing alongside our Theatre, Youth, Film and Comedy strands. 

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!

Submissions and expressions of interest will be opening soon!
