The Fugard Theatre ‘Cabaret’ Golden Ticket Event
“What good is sitting alone in your room…come to the Cabaret!”
The Fugard Theatre treated the cast of the hit musical, Cabaret, and 50 members of the public who were lucky Golden Ticket Winners, to an exclusive evening that would transport them back the 1930’s era of Cabaret.
Show Works Creative Entertainment assisted with creating this spectacular evening for The Fugard Theatre.
Show Works converted the SideShow nightclub in Cape Town into a 1930’s wonderland, with vintage themed décor, crockery, cutlery, props and lighting, transforming it into the Cabaret Kit Kat Klub in Berlin! Two classic cars – a WW11 sidecar and a 1939 Cadillac – parked outside the venue entrance, and set the scene for guests as they arrived at the at this as yet undisclosed location in stretch limousines. Guests were led upstairs – which was dressed to look like a backstage area – and handed themed costume accessories to dress up in, as well as vintage Hemingway Daiquiri Cocktails, to get them in the mood!
Once downstairs in the main event space, guest enjoyed exclusive performances by the Cabaret cast and entertainment by The Johnny Cooper Orchestra. They were served a delicious 3 course gourmet meal, punctuated by an aerial flyover, and were able to insta-print polaroid photos of their evening at a social media photo booth. All in all, a spectacular evening, which received rave reviews from guests and client alike!
The concept of “VIP” has been so overused and bastardised that it has lost all meaning, and don’t get me started on “exclusive”. The Fugard Theatre’s Golden Ticket Event added meaning to these concepts again. The Fugard Theatre’s Kit Kat Klub was like Disneyland for theatre freaks; a divine decadence. Maybe the best things in life are free – and VIP!
