Patricia is very much the light behind the resurrection and re-development of Cabaret Fest. She spent decades in the music and cabaret industry. Her deep love for Provincetown came from having served as Provincetown's first Director of Tourism. During her seven-year tenure she encountered Cabaret (for the first time) and fell in love with the intimacy of the art form. She was instrumental in launching grants for all of the off-season festivals in Provincetown. Her heart lies true to Provincetown, performing, music education and coaching. Patricia is also an Award nominated cabaret performer. This is her eight year producing the Cabaret Festival. She is proud of the Educational aspect of the festival and preserving the art form of Cabaret for future audience's .
