Backyard business goes international

The COVID-19 cabaret and variety scene is partly held together by an arts-based business broadcasting from a backyard shed in Corio.

Every Saturday night, interactive online cabaret Varietyville dials in guest acts from the national and international variety and cabaret circuit to create an online TV-style variety show delivered via Zoom. You can appear on or interact with the show in real time.

As well as their weekly shows, Varietyville now have a number of other online gigs booked on Zoom, including a Children’s Theatre Festival. Varietyville is a perfect example of a local arts business adapting it’s business model to COVID-19 conditions. Find out more on the Varietyville website.
