A mixture of Play and Circus comes to town in the new production of Performance Management in Cabaret, on from the 12 -16 December 2018.
Featuring the antics of corporate clowns and multi-tasking jugglers working alongside the cooler wankers and cavalcade of cubicle crazies, this show takes aim at the notion that ‘every office becomes a circus’ and is on at popular Chapel off Chapel venue.
Originally a sell-out show when it first debuted in Melbourne in 2015, Performance Management has been described charmingly as ‘Horrible Bosses meets The Office’. Created from the real-life corporate career of Producer, Writer and Star, Scott Hollingsworth’s experience in employee management, this satirical comedy cabaret explores everything from job interviews and unfair dismissal to little white lies on a CV and taking a sickie once too often.
Covering issues ranging from recruitment to termination and every non-politically correct situation in between, Hollingsworth, as The Ringmaster, cracks the (literal) whip to remind everyone – in the audience – who’s the Boss.
The show also has The Larrikin Lion (Joshua Fielding), The High Flyer (Aerialist - Jessica Robbins) and Sexy Strongman (Murat Yilmaz) join the mayhem for a real three-ring circus.
Showcasing hit songs from pop icons like Lady Gaga, Adele and Britney Spears, it gives a cheeky rework to several classics, adapting a beloved children’s Disney classics from Mary Poppins and The Little Mermaid – proving that even innocent children songs are not safe in the Ringmaster’s world.
Lengthen from its original version and including new songs and performances, Performance Management is for everyone that works in an office proving that laugh-out-loud scenarios really do exist in every office – making them a circus!
