2017 Orlando Cabaret Festival



We are excited to announce the return of a singular downtown Orlando event – the 15th annual Orlando Cabaret Festival, featuring cabaret artists from Central Florida and beyond. This year's cabaret festival has a new look and feel as we move our festival from an annual event to a year-round series with a cabaret event during every season of the year!  This years' performances will take place May 13-21, 2017 only at Mad Cow Theatre!


What is Cabaret?

Cabaret is a celebration of song and personality. It can be personal and delicate or flamboyant and hilarious, a painstaking journey or the party at the end of the trip. Always, though, it’s pure musical entertainment presented in an intimate space.


This season Mad Cow Theatre is excited to welcome back Orlando's own Davis Gaines to his first Orlando Cabaret Festival appearance. Davis appeared at the Bob Carr Theater in a collaboration between Mad Cow and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert staging of Sweeney Todd.

The perennial CabFest favorite It Was a Very Good Year will return to celebrate the hits of 1970 and 1980. For more information about It Was A Very Good Year and our Out-To-Lunch performances, click here.
