Unique Selling Point
The 27 Club is a unique combination of concert and theatre. It appeals to a broad cross section of audiences ranging from typical cabaret/music theatre attendees to fans of live music. Most people will be familiar with one, if not all, of the artists featured (Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison, Cobain, Winehouse) and this provides an easy entry point into the show. Perfect for first time theatre goers and seasoned attendees. Edgy and compelling.
The Producer will provide a comprehensive marketing and media kit, with a strong focus on digital and social media engagement, including video content, images, gifs, suggested social media content and public relations materials.
The 27 Club has a solid social media presence and engages regularly with fans. Previous seasons utilised Facebook campaigns and targeted video content to maximise marketing spend and to encourage strong word-of-mouth/viral engagement .
In addition to more traditional workshop options, the Producer is eager to work with presenters to create opportunities for small groups or ensembles to engage with the show's musical content in the lead-up to the show to create an outcome to be integrated into the performance. These outcomes can be tailor-made for the Presenter's community based on the objectives and needs of each venue.
Workshop Options: As trained singers and musicians, Andrew, Keane and Zack offer a variety of workshops and tutorials on anything from how to structure a successful cabaret to interpreting popular music for the stage. Both Zack and Keane are Queensland locals (Noosa and the Gold Coast respectively) and are passionate about bringing exciting productions to audiences that don’t typically engage with live performances.
