Colette Redgrave starred in the Casting Days September 2015 Showcase and went on to gain signing offers from two different agents as a result. Colette is currently promoting her new one-woman show, which promises to be an evening of song, laughter and flat-out fun.
Colette re-invents her popular sell out show #Cabaret. The evening takes a close look at social media and the positives and negatives on our lives by incorporating songs, parody and comedy along with social comment. As always, Colette will donate a minimum of £1.00 per ticket sold to The Hospice in The Weald.
We at Casting Days asked her a few questions about her upcoming show:
Casting Days: The title of your show on October 14th is #Cabaret: An Evening of Social Media, Satire and Song”. Should the audience come ready to tweet, post, Instagram, hashtag & blog to their hearts’ content?
Colette Redgrave: Absolutely and tune in to the live stream!
CD: The Pheasantry is the most gorgeous art deco space. Have you performed there before?
CR: This will be my first, but I have seen fabulous artists such as Maria Friedman there and can’t quite believe I have been given the opportunity!
CD: Will you be bringing those Redgrave acting skills to the stage?
CR: Of course dharling!
CD: The show publicity promises songs from Avenue Q and West Side Story. We’re excited. Any other titbits you might want to tempt us with?
CR: I love to Parody well known songs but I have mixed up this show with some jazz standards and also some Off-Broadway songs for a bit of contrast.
CD: What’s your Twitter handle & does your show have a hashtag?
CR: @ColetteRedgrave #Cabaret
