Meet the cast of Cabaret Supper Club
Burlesque Artist & Singer
How old are you?
How long have you been performing?
I’ve been performing professionally since I was 18
What made you try it?
My brother and I spent my youth watching musicals DVDs, I discovered Bette Midler and that was that really. I love performing and creating.
What do you do when you’re not performing?
I work as an actor, teacher, activist and glitter thrower @LUSH!!!
How did you feel the first time you stepped on to the Cabaret stage?
Honestly, it was a little terrifying. I’d never interacted with an audience in that way, after a week I was hooked! It’s a completely unique performance experience to get to interact with an audience and have craic.
What about the first time you performed on stage?
I first performed onstage in a P7 play as a Christmas turkey #startedfromthebottomnowwerehere.
What’s the secret of being successful at this?
Hard work. Determination. Not being afraid of rejection. You have to be prepared to fail and constantly willing to learn. Its how you develop your craft.
Whats your favourite thing that has ever happened on stage?
Our Christmas show was fantastic, it really allowed us to get creative and see how we work together as a team. Singing Prince’s “Kiss” as a shepherd, yep. That was pretty unique in itself!
Ive had so many brilliant performances and Im very lucky to get to share the stage with so many incredible performers. But a good audience that are on board with the craic make the show.
What really goes on back stage?
There’s a lot of nudity. A lot of hugging and some communal garments that you probably don’t want to know about.
Tell us about your current routine or new routines you’re working on.
Soup Du Jour and I are up to no good bringing an old piece of work of ours back to life for the Cabaret stage. I’m also developing a little through line for all my pieces and rejuvenating some 1930s and 40s cabaret style songs, oh and i might have a bath tub on stage at some point too!
Who is your favourite Cabaret performer & why?
Hands down the Queen and giver of life to all that is fabulous, Bette Midler. There are no words to describe how much this woman inspires me – Bowie is a very close second.
