CHRISSIE Shaw, the local performing artist and writer famous for playing Mrs Claus at Christmas, (among many other roles) has gone LIVE with a ‘Pozible’ campaign to help with costs of taking her show “Bijou – a Cabaret of Secrets and Seduction” on the road to Northern NSW in May.
“The company has just returned from a small tour in the Eastern Riverina…proving that ‘Bijou’ is a show that is loved by country people,” Shaw observes.
Shaw will join fellow Critics’ Circle awardee, the super-pianist Alan Hicks, on a tour a 2-week tour in towns up North that was booked before news came through that they’d missed out on funding from both Playing Australia and Creative Partnerships.
The show portrays, in song, music and monologue the life of an aging Parisian cabaret artiste, and they’re asking for help to cover vehicle hire, petrol, accommodation and a bit towards marketing, with the aim of raising $7,800. Scott Holgate has put together a video to give you an idea if you haven’t seen the show which premiered at The Street two years ago.
The ‘Bijou’ campaign closes on May 6, just before the tour takes off and the rewards for those people who pledge on Pozible include the possibility of a cabaret in your living room for $1,000.
