Only 10 minutes to perform a complete cabaret piece: are you up for the challenge?!
After its inaugural success last year, the Melbourne Short Sweet+Cabaret returns for November 2009, and submissions are closing soon for this cabaret version of the world’s most successful showcase event, Short And Sweet.
This is your last opportunity to participate in this ever-growing performance festival, and win exciting prizes, critical acclaim from an expert judging panel, and your audiences’ hearts!

The deadline for entries is Monday September 7, and the event runs from Thursday-Sunday November 12-22 at Chapel Off Chapel in Prahan.
All forms of cabaret are welcome, but the genre itself emphasises innovation and imagination, so festival director David Read is particularly looking for “fresh but well thought-out ideas”. He explains that, “aside from great prizes, Short Sweet+Cabaret provides performers with the opportunity to showcase their latest work, and acts as a launching pad to recognition and further opportunities.”
Venue, technical requirements and piano accompaniment (if required) are provided, and individuals or groups can apply.
So what are you waiting for? That fantastic idea you had for a cabaret show would be perfect for a ten-minute performance, and Melbourne’s Short Sweet+Cabaret festival is the ideal opportunity for you to make it happen!
To enter a submission, simply email a 100 word or less description of your 10 minute cabaret concept to firstname.lastname@example.org together with your name, telephone number and a list of any props, technical and musical accompaniment requirements.
