Meet our Staff
Event Director, Producer & Performer
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. Recently, her cabaret show " Memories of the Playboy Club" was nominated for a Best Solo Show in Boston in 2022 by Broadway World Magazine This is her ninth year producing the Cabaret Festival. She is proud of the educational aspect of the festival and preserving the art form of Cabaret for future audiences.
"Jack of all Trades"
Rhodes rose to the challenge last year by stepping out to Commercial street to deliver hundreds of cabaret program books.
He still had energy to lay out a Red Carpet, install an Oscar statue pick up way ward performers in remote locations and have time to present a fabulous workshop and perform
They don't make men like him anymore. and if they do WE NEED THEM. Thanks, David, for helping us keep the lights on .
Hospitality Co Ordinator
Shelley has been working diliengly to secure lodging for over 20 performers and musicians who arrive for the festival from San Fransisco to New York City. Housing the performers for 4 to 8 nights is a big job. She takes the guests requests, ground floor room, pet friendly and does her magic. Without a Hospitality co ordinator the festival could not proceed. It gets more difficult every season to secure housing for our performers.
Val 'Cookie' Schillawski
Val is our "Gal Friday", during the festival. Whether it's picking up guests from the ferry, buying flowers, setting up an event, or just keeping everyone calm, Val is there. An actress and costume designer, she is 'new' to Cabaret and has become an enormous fan of the 'art form'. Everyone relies on her to GET IT DONE! We welcome her back to this season's festival.
