Aptly described as the love child of Jack Black and Bette Midler, Sharron Matthews has been playing to sold-out audiences and stellar reviews across Canada, NYC, London and South Africa, after starring roles in ‘Les Miserables’, ‘Mean Girls’ and Global TV’s ‘Canada Sings!’. Sharron delivers jaw-dropping vocals, pop-culture punches and hit-melody mash ups in a one-of-a-kind concert experience that defies age and gender barriers.

Sharron Matthews’ Cabaret for Kids
Uptown Funk with a Downtown Diva
Award winning, international cabaret artist Sharron Matthews, in collaboration with Canada’s foremost theatre for young audiences, the Young People’s Theatre in Toronto, has developed an interactive, exciting, popular-music-filled, cabaret for children ages 9-13 years old. Sharron expertly weaves personal stories from her own childhood of dealing with bullying, negative self image, anxiety and overcoming adversity, around accessible, instantly recognizable, and fiercely current songs of the day like “Shake if Off” and “Uptown Funk” as well as Sharron’s signature comedic storytelling style.
UNAPOLOGETICALLY ME! Sharron Matthews’ Cabaret for Kids creates a comfortable, safe and entertaining forum for children to learn, discover and share as they delight in singing and clapping along to their favourite contemporary pop-songs! Songs are chosen based not only on their popularity, but also on their thematically relevant lyrics.
Sharron is accompanied by two accomplished musicians; a percussionist with an eye and ear-catching kit of musical instruments and toys, and a multi instrumental string artist who plays electric and acoustic guitar, as well as bass ukulele. There is something for every child (as well as teachers and parents!) to see, hear and experience!
A musical feast for the eyes and ears, young audience members who are a part of Sharron’s Cabaret for Kids feel not only involved musically but, with Sharron’s gift and experience with direct address, they tell their teachers and parents again and again that they all walk away feeling seen and heard!
