Sydney Cabaret Competition – Heats

Sunday 30 June 2019


The search begins for Australia’s Best Cabaret Star, who could win a career changing prize—including the opportunity to perform at Sydney’s favourite cabaret venues, cash prizes and expert support to bring a show to the stage. Entries are open now for the Sydney Cabaret Competition which will discover a new generation of Australian singers, artists and storytellers.

In June across three heats, performers will unleash an original eight-minute cabaret in front of a live audience and a panel of judges including Helpmann Award winner Matt Lee, Broadway World Award winner Catherine Alcorn, Australian cabaret treasures Queenie van de Zandt, Phil Scott, Avigail Herman, Darren Mapes and Margi De Ferranti and producers Mark Sutcliffe and Les Solomon.

The top three performers from each heat as voted by the audience and judges will progress to the Grand Finale at the Sydney Cabaret Festival, where the winner will be announced by international queen of cabaret, Trevor Ashley.
