LIFE IS A CABARET! (article first published : 2005-09-8)

Performed by Carol Trench and Anthony Stonier, Life is a Cabaret is an elegant tribute to the art form of cabaret using the traditional style of this genre popularised in the Thirties and still in evidence the world over.

Carol Trench, well loved and renowned for her phenomenal voice, and Anthony Stonier (Best Male Vocalist Award 2002 and 2003) team up for the first time in three years since the popular and award winning show, Letís Misbehave. Accompaniment will be provided from award winning pianist and musical director, Evan Roberts, with Tom Hare on trumpet, saxophone and flute. They are also accompanied by Bruce Baker on drums and John Stengel on bass.

Carol and Anthony have selected the music and lyrics of John Kander and Fred Ebb. These musical theatre giants may not be household names to the extent of Rogers and Hammerstein but their canon of music includes such well known songs as Cabaret, New York New York, Maybe this Time, City Lights, Razzle Dazzle and All That Jazz, to name but a few.

The recurring phrase in the popular song Cabaret that makes the title of this show holds a fundamental truth both in real life and on a cabaret stage. Cabaret traditionally looks at real life, the ups and downs, loves and losses and comments on them satirically or realistically in song.

Directed by Clare Mortimer, this promises to be an elegant and glamorous night out with some of South Africaís best entertainers!

Performances of Life is a Cabaret will take place at the Scottburgh Golf Club on September 10, at the Witness Hilton Arts Festival on September 17 and 18, Ramsgate Lions Supper Club on September 23 and 24 and will commence its run at the Heritage Theatre in Hillcrest from September 27.
