"Imagine - The Music of the Swing'n 70s Meets the Roaring 20s"
Following the festival's progression by decade, starting with the 1920s, 2020 sees CabaretFest celebrating the music of the 1970s from Broadway to The Carpenters, James Taylor, ABBA and Disco.
The festival will present over 30 top Cabaret performers from Palm Springs, Rhode Island, Boston, New York City, New Hampshire, and Provincetown.
Our commitment to education continues with Celebrity Master Classes and performance workshops. The festival is all about entertainment ! This season we have booked ten cabaret shows, VIP private parties, a Meet & Greet Party with our headliner John Davidson and our famous, gourmet Sunday Brunch Show, featuring the Brian Patton Trio, Pamela Enders and Special Guest Star Angela Bacari. The Brunch is also the showcase for our Master Class students where they have the opportunity to perform before their peers, fans, relatives, and the press.
Fr Jeffrey L Hamblin, MD
CabaretFest 2020 is all about education and continuing the art form of cabaret
Hoosier born and bred, New Yorker for multiple years and now residing in one of the performing arts centers of Florida – that would be Sarasota—Fr Jeff has had a love of music since childhood. Being an educator, clergyman and physician he sees daily how music is able to touch the human core. Cabaret is an intimate art form that through music and storytelling touches and enlivens the performer and the audience. The Scholarships are given to help perpetuate this art form and allow the students to polish their skills and receive input from some of the best Cabaret artists.
The Father Jeff Hamblin Scholarship Program has sponsored nine students. This year the Father Jeffery Hamblin Sponsorship program will be sponsoring three more stars of tomorrow.
The Mission Statement of the Provincetown CabaretFest is to entertain, train, educate and coach students interested in preserving the art of Cabaret performance.
In keeping with the mission statement, Ambassador Productions, through the medium of our Provincetown Cabaret Festival, strives to bring the art form of presenting the American Songbook, in an intimate venue to a wider audience.
From the resurrection of Cabaret Festival, May 2015, we have concentrated on an educational program aimed at new-comers and returnees to the stage. We invite the top Master Coaches in the country to the festival to coach, encourage, train and teach our students and scholarship candidates.
Our Celebrity Master Class and Performance Workshop instructors are the best. Our celebrity instructors have included Mark Nadler, Steven Ross, the Comstocks, Marilyn Maye, and Jeff Harnar with Alex Rybeck. Last year, we were extremely fortunate to secure the expertise of the iconic Sharon McNight. This season we are honored to have as our Celebrity Master Coach Angela Bacari - vocal coach for Liza Minnelli.
We are extremely proud that some of our masterclass and workshop students have gone on to great things in Boston, Palm Springs, CA, and New York City. Our graduates have gone on to leading parts in Broadway Shows, the Saint Louis Cabaret Convention, Palm Springs night clubs, cruise ship work , London Cabaret Rooms and the Australian Cabaret Festival.
