Did you go to school with that overly ambitious drama student who thought they were going to be the next big thing? Or perhaps you were that poor student and can look back on how dramatic you were. Arts Captain is a satirical cabaret show about that very student, with one important twist; they can’t sing. Featuring classic Broadway songs, Arts Captain is in part based on the life of creator, Jayden Walker, an emerging Melbourne theatre maker.
Playing at the end of February, Arts Captain tells the story of Theodore Etherington (Jayden Walker), a recently elected Arts Captain, who has deluded himself into thinking he is the next Barbara or Liza. Featuring songs made famous by his favourite Broadway Diva’s, such as Don’t Rain On My Parade and Cabaret, Theodore begins his quest for stardom, using singing to navigate the twists and turns of life.
February 23 – 26
