EVENING STAR CABARET FAQ

What is a Cabaret?

 

A caberet-style performance is one that is done in a intimate setting, where the audience is seated very close to the performer, often times at small tables where food and drink is served.

 

 

Who is eligible for participation?

 

There will be two different styles of cabaret shows.  One that is Neo-Soul, and the other Musical Theater.

 

 

For the Neo-Soul version, we are looking for the following:

 

      Singers of R&B, Jazz, or Coffee-House Style (i.e. Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, India. Arie)

 

      Spoken Word Artists who recite their own works or recreate works by other pubished artists (however, it must be made clear    

      during performances who that artist is and where their work can be found, as to give them the proper credit).

 

      Hip-Hop/Rap Artists.  Kept Clean (profanity acceptable within reason but nothing derogatory or demeaning to any specific               group).

 

 

      Stand Up-Comedians.  Kept Clean (profanity acceptable within reason but nothing derogatory or demeaning to any specific      

      group).

 

 

For the Musical Theater version, we are looking for the following:

 

      Strong performers who are well-versed in the world of musical theater and have strong, engaging personalities.    

     Speaking to the audience is a must, and the ability of storytelling is even better.

 

*Additional kinds of performers may be included.  If you have a suggestion that is not listed, please e-mail info@eveningstarpro.com, with the subject: Cabaret Suggestion, and someone from our company will get back to you ASAP.  ALL performers, no matter what genre will be subject to a screening, or audition before being formally invited to perform.  To sign up for your audition/screening, please click here for the approptiate form.

 

 

Where will these events be held?

Will There Be Pay?
