The Knox Amplified Cabaret Showcase Program provided an exciting opportunity for local amatuer performers to work with multi award winning cabaret performers/producers, Melissa Langton and Mark Jones.

Following auditions, six lucky performers were selected to participate in workshops at Knox Community Arts Centre with Melissa and Mark throughout July and August.

They have been working on writing cabaret scripts, microphone technique, lighting a show, structuring and developing a cabaret show.

Come along and support our local talent as they perform their original cabaret shows at Knox Community Arts Centre on Saturday 25th August.

Adults $10, Concession/Child $5 (non-allocated seating)
