Cabaret Theatre Company
Formed by principal Sally Everson and director Daniel David Webber, Cabaret Theatre Company provides our senior students from Burton and Littleover with the opportunity to perform a full-length musical production every year.
Borne from the success of ‘I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change’ in 2012, the Company is now producing it’s 6th show with some of the most talented young performers in the area. Last year they took on the firm family favourite “Jospeph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat”, and this March the newly-formed adult company are thrilled to be bringing Chicago to the Brewhouse in Burton.
Reviews for Cabaret Theatre Company…
“Barnum is a clever musical with flicks and tricks and it takes a strong cast to make it work. Cabaret Theatre Company did just that at Burton’s Brewhouse Arts Theatre.
Leads Harry Whetton and Autumn Beddoe were outstanding, captivating the audience from the moment they entered the stage. For a pair so young, they led an altogether strong cast with confidence and assurance.
For me, Cabaret Theatre Company’s Barnum had it all. Great song and dance routines, circus skills and an first-class cast where every single person on the stage shone”
“The show was fun and entertaining from beginning to end, leaving the audiences on a high and wanting more. Collectively the main cast all delivered sharp, confident performances and the other cast members complemented them well. The hard work of all the students and staff at the The Cabaret Theatre Company is noticeable in this professional, energetic and enjoyable production”
“Once again the Cabaret Theatre Company has come up with a cracking show for their Burton audience. The cast manage to make the singing and dancing look both slick and easy and the acting is faultless.
I was thoroughly entranced by Spelling Bee and thought it was very much an inventive and entertaining piece of theatre that deserved a much wider audience”
“This company delivered a fantastic ensemble performance full of pace, polish and professionalism. The 20-strong cast were clearly doing what they loved, but I’d nominate them for a host of prizes too for singing, dancing and comic timing in this fun-packed musical.
There were positive messages galore in this uplifting show, and I didn’t stop smiling for the whole 70 minutes. I’d say the future of musical theatre in Burton is in very safe hands”
