Fr Jeffrey L Hamblin, MD

 

CabaretFest 2021 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 awarded 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.

Our Celebrity Master Class and Performance Workshop instructors are the best. Our celebrity instructors have included Mark Nadler, Steve Ross, the Comstocks, Marilyn Maye, Jeff Harnar with Alex Rybeck, John O'Neil and Sharon McNight.

 

Last year, we were extremely fortunate to secure the expertise of the iconic Angela Bacari. This season we are again honored to have as our Celebrity Master Coaches Angela Bacari, Sidney Myer, and Steve Ross accompanied by Mike Renzi, Tracy Stark, and Michael McAssey.

 

We are extremely proud that some of our masterclass and workshop graduates have gone on to great things in Boston, Palm Springs, CA, and New York City, being selected for leading roles in  Broadway Shows, the Saint Louis Cabaret Convention, and Palm Springs night clubs, cruise ship work, London Cabaret Rooms, and the Australian Cabaret Festival.

Master Classes.

The Mission Statement of the Provincetown CabaretFest is to train, educate, and coach students interested in preserving the art of Cabaret performance.

In keeping with the mission statement, Ambassador Productions, through our Provincetown Cabaret Festival, strives to bring the art form of the American Songbook, in an intimate venue to a wider audience. 

From the resurrection of the 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.
