Cabaret seems to have taken a back seat in Sydney in recent times, certainly when it comes to young male performers. The scene for a long time was dominated by a variety of music theatre and cabaret guys as they used the intimacy of cabaret to work on their craft and strengthen their reputation. From this period came David Campbell, Tim Draxl, Kane Alexander, Hayden Tee,Shaun Rennie etc etc, to name a few. Many of these performers cut their cabaret teeth at the legendary El Rocco Club in Kings Cross.
So it seems only appropriate to introduce David Simes to the world at El Rocco together with an opening in the wonderful environs of the magical town of Tyalgum where so many of the aforementioned singers have also performed.
David Simes is a 25 year old actor singer from the central coast who has made an impression in children’s theatre and theatre in the last couple of years. David is currently one half of the “Giggle and Hoot” show on ABC TV. Last year he won great reviews in the play “Flood” at the Old 505 Theatre and toured for a year around Australia with Brainstorm Theatre. Most recently David has been touring with singing group “The Vallies”. David has wanted to take on the world of cabaret for some time and this is his first full show.
Leading strongly with the traditions set by some of the great jazz and swing performers, David’s show also features some classic music theatre standards and some songs from the hottest new Broadway Tony award winning musical hit “Dear Evan Hansen” .
David is joined on this journey with one of Australia’s leading musical directors, the amazing Andrew Worboys, fresh from his success with “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Cabaret” and the recent tour with Belinda Wollaston and just before he begins his work on two new Hayes productions “Assasins” and “High Fidelity”. David and Andrew make quite a dynamic duo, not to be missed.
