King Street Theatre is bringing cabaret back to Newtown

microphone image by newly renovated King Street Theatre (KST) is out to fill a void for Sydneysiders who missed the Adelaide Cabaret Festival by creating their own mini cab-fest.

From Jun 15 – July 14, the new management of KST will present each Friday and Saturday night the new Songs I’ll Never Sing.

“Our vision stems from the notion of artists to live rather than just survive and let them be respected and supported as any other working professional in Australia. What better way to do this than to give them a stage, some lights and a crowd?” said directors Maria de Marco and Markus Weber.

Songs I’ll Never Sing will feature musical theatre stars of today and tomorrow strutting their stuff with songs that they’ll never be able to do in a production – whether because they’re not tall, young, big, small, male, or female.

Each night, four different performers will be showcased on the newly created Foyer Stage, in an intimate cafe style setting with a cosy bar.

To keep the cabaret alive, KST need the crowds, and with your ticket you’ll even receive your first drink on the house.
