Cabaret Season

Take a seat. The show is about to start.

Coming to you live from the creative heart of Federation University Australia, this is Cabaret Season.

Our season of self-devised cabarets is performed by the Third Year Graduating Music Theatre Company.

Directed by Catherine Campbell and with musical direction by Rainer Pollard

Join us in June at one of three venues: Post Office Box Theatre on the Camp Street Campus, the wonderful Lost Ones in Camp Street, Ballarat, and Hares and Hyenas in Melbourne for these performances. Details below.

The Very Cool Artists who Appreciate all with Performance Attitudes

The 'Very Cool Artists Who Appreciate All With Performative Attitudes' are an elite squad of performers who all share one common trait: To be individual. They are united in this and find solace in sharing their stories with you. During this season they will take you on a journey. There will be highs. There will be lows. But it’s the early show so there’ll be no low blows.

Cast: Heather Cheney, Rachel Dwyer, Benjamin Carter, Nick Bell, Blake Peiper, Emily Jaker-Lawrence, Georgie Potter

I'm Fine. It's Fine. We're All Fine.

In a world plagued by social injustice, societal expectations and the unachievable desire to prove oneself, these seven music theatre students have teamed up to tackle the world one venue at a time. If there’s a problem that needs fixing, if no-one else can help, they probably can’t either. But they’ll f*cking try. Sorry Mum.
