This Cabaret favourite certainly is one to watch!

Yesterday at the Helpmann Awards we were all very excited to see Michael Griffiths win the Helpmann Award for Best Cabaret Performer for his fantastic show Cole, which had its world premiere at the 2015 Adelaide Cabaret Festival.

We nominated Michael for this award and it was a very special moment for us when he acknowledged the support of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival and Adelaide Festival Centre in his acceptance speech. Watch it here.

Michael has been part of the Cabaret Festival family for a long time now with wonderful shows, participation in our Cabaret Regional Roadshows, as well as mentoring to our Class of Cabaret students.  It is a very well deserved award for him to receive.

As a very special bonus, one of the other final nominations in this category – also nominated by us – was Michaela Burger and Greg Wain’s wonderful show Exposing Edith, which performed to sold out houses in our 2015 Cabaret Festival. 

Keep an eye out for more from these two talented performers coming soon!
