We are pleased to announce that blackcat productions has signed on as Companion Card affiliates!
What’s Companion Card, you say? It’s a system that offers fair ticketing to people with disability who wish to access events. In simple terms, if you have a Companion Card, you can access a free ticket for your carer or companion to blackcat produced events such as HOMAGE, our upcoming Mardi Gras cabaret festival and, of course, Lady Sings it Better gigs.
For us, becoming an affiliate is really important, even though we’re only a small production company. We try to make all our events as accessible as possible, which can be hard in Sydney, where most cabaret venues are separated from the street by impossible staircases. Becoming an affiliate at least allows us to be more economically accessible to people with disability!
Our first performance since signing up is at Jurassic Lounge, which is on at Affiliate venue, The Australian Museum. To see if you like Lady Sings it Better, and to learn more about what we’re up to, visit the Lady Sings it Better indiegogo campaign page and watch our promo video!
We’re playing two sets at closing night on September 20, sharing the bill with amazing artists, DJs, musicians, exhibitions, talks and screenings!
We hope Companion Card users come along to this fabulous night out! The blackcat team went a few weeks ago and had an awesome time roaming the museum.
As a special offer for Jurassic Lounge, blackcat productions are offering any Companion Card holders who come and say ‘hi’ to the Lady Sings it Better cast after the performance a half-price ticket to an upcoming gig!
DATE: September 20
TIME: 5:30pm – 9:30pm
Jurassic Lounge is run by The Australian Museum in partnership with The Festivalists, a non-profit organisation with five years’ experience in hosting film festivals, workshops and art events in Sydney.
