So, obviously we’re now running our very own cabaret & drag course. Perfect for those of you who want to try it for the first time or further develop your skills.

The course explores topics like performing gender, make up, lip syncing and character, with participants developing a new 3.5 minute set to perform at the end of term.

The Cabaret & Drag Lab meet weekly on Saturdays 12.45pm – 3.15pm (2.5 hours), with classes starting on 18 Jan until 14 Mar. On Sat 28 Mar we’ll hold a public sharing, where you’ll be able to showcase what you’ve learned over the course in a safe environment, at our very own Soho Theatre. We ask that participants commit to attending all 10 weeks. Full dates for Term 2 are:

Week 1- 18 Jan
Week 2- 25 Jan
Week 3- 1 Feb
Week 4- 8 Feb
Week 5- 15 Feb
