Melbourne Cabaret Festival 2021
The Melbourne Cabaret Festival is the second largest cabaret festival in the world, and is a major winter arts event in the city. Cabaret is flourishing in Australia, and nowhere more so than in the hip and cultural city of Melbourne.
Melbourne Cabaret Festival is a mammoth three-week glitz and glamour spectacular. Events are held in Chapel Off Chapel in Prahran and at The Butterfly Club in the CBD. Chapel Off Chapel is the City of Stonnington’s premier venue for the arts. The Butterfly Club is a founding venue of the Melbourne Cabaret Festival, featuring a 76-seat theatre, award-winning cocktails and the southern hemisphere’s largest collection of kitsch.
For more than a decade, the Festival has evolved into one which provides a perfect launching pad for new cabaret shows. Cabaret is a diverse, welcoming art form and our program reflects that each year.
The festival hosts several events for the LGTBQ community. Previous cabaret shows have included a new age drag show: “when thinking about drag everyone expects a Judy Garland but no one expects a Serena Williams,” The Festival has also proudly champions causes including marriage equality and on-stage visibility of under-represented cultures, races, sexualities, genders and ages. Other events such as Amy
Winehouse: Resurrected, Death of a Demi Diva and He’s Every Woman have gone on to become winning productions featured across the country.
The entire 3 week program is diverse, wide and varied and has shows appealing to all tastes. Tickets to the opening and closing galas are highly sought after.
