Cabaret Legend Queenie van de Zandt has wrangled 30 of Australia’s biggest and brightest cabaret stars to deliver her ground-breaking Australian Musical Theatre Academy course Creating Cabaret.

The course is limited to 30 participants – to create a truly intimate deep dive into learning for those who snap up their places.

Cabaret is traditionally performed to smaller audiences with a smaller production costs and is being touted as the perfect post-pandemic offering being programmed at Festivals and Arts Centres in 2021/2022. Queenie states, “There has never been a better time for you to create that show you’ve been thinking about for years!”

“Queenie van de Zandt has a knack of bringing together the best in the business to be a part of her courses…What an amazing opportunity to work with the leading lights of the cabaret scene to develop your own cabaret show.  I wish this had been around when I was starting out!
