Cafe Cabaret 01.04.2011

??Scene from the Elizabethan CabaretThere were April fools and May queens as the Hill Station cafe was transformed into a buzzing cabaret venue last Friday night. Wine was passed hand to hand from the crowded bar and between performances the sound of many lively conversations filled the air.

We were treated to songs and comedy in the style of first Berlin Cabaret and then Elizabethan Cabaret from the Bluebird Cabaret team.

After the great success of Zoe, Bold Vision is paying homage to the team who every year challenge our ideas of what is possible to make happen inside St Catherine’s Church.

The team will be engaging with the public to talk about
their experiences and motivations behind the scenes. The audience will be invited to give feedback and
the ask questions.

The Community Production Mini Retrospective currently on display at the Hill Station unearths some of the work that goes unseen in the Community Production such as costume design drawings by Caroline Thorp. There is also a collection of films, posters and props which show the quiet work of local talent who give their professional expertise so incredibly generously every year to support the production.

All welcome, do come along to the Hill Station – Sat April 9th at 8 pm. Bring a bottle.
