"Cabaret (English pronunciation: /kæbəˈreɪ/) is a form of entertainment featuring music, song, dance, recitation, or drama" - cheers Wikipedia. In this workshop, Hadley looks at how to put together a low-cost way of showing off your acting, writing, and singing skills. Good for actors looking for a way to tell a story, singers wanting to find a way of connecting songs together, producers looking for low cost shows, bar owners looking for fun and accessible entertainment.

Constructing Cabaret will look at different ways to put together a cabaret set from scratch, and will develop the ideas in the room, equipping participants with a product they can take on the road.
