Cabaret Shorts competition

Closing date - 26 June 2017 Showing at: His Majesty's Theatre

Perth Theatre Trust is seeking expressions of interest for the 2017 Cabaret Shorts competition!

Belinda Dunbar had a gift for spotting new talent. Singers, actors, dancers, musicians, comedians, onstage, backstage, front of house... if you had that sparkle, Belinda would find you and make it her business to give you a ‘lucky break’.


Cabaret Shorts is the result of a crowdfunding programme titled Belinda’s Gift which was established to continue the memory and work of Belinda Dunbar, who left us unexpectedly in August 2015.


Belinda’s Gift is supported by Belinda’s husband Bryce, parents Dorothy and Richard, and her family.

Who are we looking for?

Talented solo cabaret singers who would like the opportunity to showcase their talent in Perth’s premier cabaret venue, Downstairs at The Maj.

Competitions and prizes 

  • 1st prize: $2,500
  • 2nd prize: $1,000
  • People’s choice: $500

Entries must be received by 5pm on Monday 26 June 2017.
