The Cabaret Club was Founded by Madame Coco in August 2012, a producer with a passion for cabaret and theatre. It has fast become a favourite haunt for local revelers and fun-seekers looking for a night out with a difference.

We welcome a selection of renowned cabaret artists from around the country, collaborating with local performers to create a night of sheer decadence and debauchery for our glorious guests.  Our stages are frequented by a wealth of talented puppeteers, burlesque performers, comedians and magicians as well as singers, circus acts and dancers.

We enjoy playing our part in enriching the local cultural offering, and have been proud recipients of funding from arts and community organisation Ideas Test.


The Cabaret Team

Lisa Carpendale (AKA Madame Coco)

Founder and Producer

Lisa developed a keen interest in the arts from a young age, with her first arts role based at Royal & Derngate Theatres in Northampton.

Lisa began working at various arts venues and charities in London for the next 10 years where she developed a love for the burlesque and cabaret scene. She then moved to Medway and set up The Cabaret Club in 2013.

Today The Cabaret Club continues to grow from strength to strength and the brand is already raising the bar locally in terms of theatrical production and performance.

Heather Viggers

Performer and Stage Manager

Heather Pic

Heather is our resident soulful songstress and Stage Manager extraordinaire. She’s guaranteed to get you swaying in your seat with a smile on your face!

Heather’s powerful voice and even more powerful skills of organisation have whipped the Cabaret Club team into a frenzy.  We would be totally lost without her!

Thomas Kelly (AKA Dark Sugar)

Resident Host and Producer

Dark by nature and sweet by name, Dark Sugar is a performance artist and compère extraordinaire. No entrance is too dramatic and no tongue too far in its cheek for this fine gentleman.

In a night he may transform his guise, your expectations and even his gender. As an artist he works across live art, spoken word and dance to create timeless performance pieces. Whether a work worth repeating or a bespoke performance – you can expect energy, wit and malevolent sass.

It’s real, it’s now, it’s Dark Sugar.

Lindsey Burke (AKA Dinky Dynamite) 

Stage Maid & Assistant Producer

Miss Lindsey Burke The Cabaret Club

Behind every good cabaret is an even better woman, and one who is unafraid to wrestle the dancer’s discarded knickers back from the audience.

Lindsey is the lemon twist in our G&T, and has been with The Cabaret Club from early on, happily lending a hand and the odd feather duster to our shows.

With a winning smile that just won’t quit, expect to be delighted by the utterly delightful Miss Lindsey Burke.

Sam Froudist (AKA Le Frou Frou)

Social Media Superstar and Producer

Born and raised in the wilds of the Colonies, Le Frou Frou is an Antipodean lass with a Frenchified nature. Our dear Frou is a cabaret singer with a penchant for waving her hands in the air, like she just don’t care, and the odd cocktail mid song.

Behind the scenes, Le Frou Frou gets all up in the grill of The Cabaret Club’s social media, sharing cabaret news far and wide.

By day, a drama teacher, by night a thrilling combination of cabaret superstar, social media whizz and copywriter extraordinaire. She has very little spare time, but she’s saving it all just for you.

Missy Maybe

Burlesque Babe & Guest Host

Missy Maybe The Cabaret Club

Miss Maybe performs traditional British Burlesque acts that skillfully merge the best of Vaudeville and Music Hall with sharp wit and observational comedy.

A trained actress, she brings an innate understanding of the stage and character to her acts, often combining humorous monologues with striptease and clowning.

Her ability to create plausible yet ridiculous characters is unparalleled; to do so whilst retaining the audience’s empathy despite their antics is testimony to her great skill as a performer.
