Seniors set to shine at cabaret

27 April, 2015

Senior residents with a love for the limelight are invited to hone their performing skills by enrolling in one of the upcoming Lord Mayor’s Seniors Cabaret Master Classes to be held throughout Brisbane.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said the free master classes will be led by top theatre performers and are an incredible opportunity for seniors to develop and showcase their creative talent.

“This year’s Seniors Cabaret Showcase will be a tribute to the 1960s, bringing to life the music of The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin and more through song, dance, comedy and instrumental performances,” Cr Quirk said.

“The Seniors Cabaret Master Classes are one of the most popular events for our seniors, with more than 120 people participating in the classes in 2014.

“The classes are a wonderful way for our seniors to celebrate their talents, make new friends and connect with others in their local community.

“Since beginning in 2013, the classes have grown in popularity by over 60% and I encourage interested seniors to get in quick to register their interest.”

Ten master classes are scheduled between 1–18 June to be held in Upper Mt Gravatt, Zillmere, Kangaroo Point, Wynnum, Bowen Hills, Jindalee, Upper Kedron, Bracken Ridge, Sandgate and Sunnybank.

Cr Quirk said the series of classes was being held across Brisbane during June and would be followed by nine suburban showcases throughout July.

The suburban showcases will culminate in a gala cabaret performance in Brisbane City Hall on Sunday 16 August, during Seniors Week.

Seniors participating in the program must be aged 60 years or over as of 18 August 2013.
Workshops are free to attend, but bookings are required.
