You are invited to a diverse, two-week festival filled with dynamic performances of music, theatre, comedy, circus, drag, magic and more - and all from the comfort of your own home!
Monash Uni Student Theatre, a department of the MSA, will continue to wow audiences with its sixth Cabaret Festival, this year again live streaming through the MUST Facebook page.
Embrace an exceptional array of acts each night, as MUST CabFest goes global with interstate and established performers joining the line-up! Including performances from MUST alumni such as gender transcendent diva Mama Alto, renowned magician Alex de la Rambelje (Gentlemen of Deceit), feminist musical powerhouse Cousin Tara, award-winning director & podcaster Daniel Lammin, and Matt Portelli’s indie rock trio Feverdreams; the festival celebrates proud alumni, current students and artists from the wider MUST community. Expect loads of surprising performances; from 20-member group Harambee A Cappella, to live art collective STRANGEkit; from circus artist Mahalia Moves, to amazing vocalists Kira, Meghna and Kitty Rae, amongst many others! Our incredible featured artists have made videos especially to showcase their work at CabFest and our entertaining hosts will present them live!
