Looking For Me Friend: The Music of Victoria Wood, written and performed by Paulus ‘The Cabaret Geek’  is coming to the Sarah Thorne Theatre in Broadstairs this May.

Directed by multi-award-winning cabaret artist Sarah-Louise Young of An Evening Without Kate Bush, the show is filled with love, laughter and  memories for Victoria Wood fans as well as the ultimate ‘beginner’s guide’ for audiences new to her work.

Many of Victoria Wood’s best-loved songs through the decades are featured including It Would Never Have Worked, Reincarnation and the classic Ballad of Barry & Freda (Let’s Do It), as well as some of her lesser-known and more poignant compositions. The acclaimed pianist Michael Roulston joins Paulus on stage for the show.

Paulus said: “As we embark on our fifth year travelling the UK to celebrate a lost, much-loved friend, I’m more excited than ever to meet fellow fans of the unforgettable Victoria Wood, and to introduce a whole new generation to her wit, wisdom and word-play.”

Paulus is an entertainer and educator specialising in cabaret. Best known for his appearances on BBC1’s All Together Now as a talent judge, his musical tribute to Victoria Wood premièred in London in 2020.

For fifteen years, Paulus had close ties to the cult London cabaret venue The Battersea Barge, producing many cabarets for them including the hugely successful talent contest Cheese ‘n’ Crackers, Diva Nite and their annual adult pantomimes.

For ten years, Paulus ran the entertainment agency Excess All Areas (formerly Better Chemistry) and under this banner he spearheaded the annual Cabaret Convention and London Cabaret Awards. His expertise has been sought to judge many talent competitions including National Burlesque Awards, Drag Idol for Royal Vauxhall Tavern, Pride’s Got Talent, Musical Comedy Awards and Burlesque Idol at The Hippodrome Casino.

Looking For Me Friend: The Music of Victoria Wood is on stage at the Sarah Thorne Theatre on May 12 from 7pm.

Tickets cost £18 in advance plus £1 booking fee or £20 on the door plus £1 booking fee.
