The Minstrels of the Revolution won the Melbourne Cabaret Festival Award at the Melbourne Fringe Awards on Sunday night for their premier show 'In Search of Atlantis'.
(Kai with the space invader shaped award!)
2010 will mark the first ever Melbourne Cabaret Festival hosted by The Butterfly Club and City of Port Phillip (amongst others), and is sure to be an event not to be missed. Kai Smythe and Tim Mager are the first ever to receive the award which offers them open access to the 2010 Festival as well as professional development support for the show and the opportunity to present the show at The Butterfly Club.
It came as a complete surprise, Kai was the only one who heard the announcement me and Tim were too busy talking about how we weren't going to win, hah!
The ever gracious David Read presented the award.
Watch this space for further development for 'In Search of Atlantis' at Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy and more!!
