Our rising star set for cabaret debut

Aaron Taylor

2009 AussieTheatre.com Rising Star winner, Aaron Taylor, will make his Sydney cabaret debut on Sunday night, performing as part of Showqueen.

In what will be a superb ANZAC Day performance, the show will be an opportunity to see Aaron perform before he takes off overseas.

Aaron’s show, Gweilo In Hong Kong, is set to wow audiences.

“I’m really looking forward to performing at Showqueen and given it’s a long weekend I can’t wait to see plenty of people turn out and relax on a Sunday night in Sydney,” Aaron said.

“Showqueen is a great concept and The Sugar Mill is a fabulous room so I cannot wait to get in there and perform on Sunday.”

Aaron’s show is a one-off performance and part of the prize package he received by winning the Rising Star competition last year.

Since 2007, AussieTheatre.com has run the competition, revealing remarkable theatrical talents and lavishing upon them wonderful prizes such as a photo shoots, publicity packages, media training and more.

“The competition has been a great success and it is going to be fabulous to see Aaron perform his show on Sunday,” saidAussieTheatre.com Managing Editor, Troy Dodds.

“Two years after Emily Cascarino won the first competition, she is starring in Mamma Mia!, whilst 2008 winner Erin Cornell has had some tremendous success with Wicked overseas and her show last year was excellent.

“I really encourage everyone to get out to The Sugar Mill on Sunday night and enjoy what will be a really wonderful performance by a young man who has such a huge future in this industry.”
