Class of Cabaret grant opens

Applications for the Nathaniel O'Brien Scholarship have opened for talented year 10/11 students in regional and outer metropolitan South Australia that are hoping to enter into the world of cabaret. 

The winner of this year’s scholarship will join the 2019 Class of Cabaret program, with the $5000 valued scholarship covering travel, accommodation and private vocal classes in Adelaide next year.

Last year's scholarship winner, Port Lincoln student Tascha Jordison, spoke highly of her experience.

"Being mentored by some of Australia's most successful cabaret artists opened up so many wonderful opportunities and helped expand my knowledge of the cabaret world."

The winner can also gain SACE credits for their participation in the program. Applications close at 5pm Sunday, September 30.

The Class of Cabaret Scholarship honours Nathaniel O'Brien, a former graduate of the Class of Cabaret who passed away in a car accident in 2015.

Adelaide Festival Centre CEO and Artistic Direction, Douglas Gautier said that this years program has been sponsored by the Adelaide Festival Centre Foundation for the first time.

"We are delighted to once again offer this scholarship, with help from the Adelaide Festival Centre Foundation, and we look forward to discovering and nurturing young performers from rural and outer metropolitan areas of South Australia."
