Gemma Oaten • Somebody Call me a Cabaret

Actress, Singer Gemma Oaten has teamed up with entrepreneur Richard Lamberth – to launch production company Amigo Productions. Amigo will produce Cabaret shows, provide coaching, create unique corporate performing arts experiences and more. In addition Gemma is also proud to lend her name to an inclusive theatre school for young people which she hopes will be something truly dynamic for the industry. Amigo aim to wholly support the arts and also benefit Gemma’s personal charity, SEED, which helps sufferers of Eating Disorders.

Gemma Oaten added: “I suffered with anorexia for many years. The performing arts were vital in helping me survive the worst struggles with eating disorders so I know first-hand how transforming an opportunity it can be to get to do something you love. Now feels like the right time to help other young people, from all walks of life, flourish and follow their dreams, just as I have.”

Following on from the hugely successful cabaret fundraiser at London’s Hippodrome for SEED, Amigo Productions have commited to also host a regular cabaret night in London, inviting a different established star each month.

The debut show “Somebody Call me a Cabaret” is on Sunday 19th August 2018, 5pm at the Phoenix Arts Club with West-end royalty Julie Atherton (“Avenue Q”,”The Grinning Man” “Sister Act” “Mamma Mia” and more) as their first guest performer.

Gemma explained: “London has always had a thriving cabaret scene and I really want to build a regular night where performers can come and share their voices with a supportive audience.”

Julie Atherton commented, “Gemma is one of the kindest, generous souls I’ve ever met, she is beautiful outside and in. I’m honoured to be part of her cabarets and can’t wait to share the stage with her again.”

The show will be a mix of stories, original and well loved songs, based on the theme of love and relationships. Julie and Gemma both confess to have had many a disaster in relationships and dating, so it’s a chance for them to have their say! They will be joined by acclaimed singer Patrick Smyth who will also be along for the ride (and possibly be their punch bag). Gemma and Julie are big believers in female empowerment and are ready and raring to take centre stage.
Gemma said “Research and prep for the cabret has been done over many a bottle of gin so who knows what the night will have in store!” 

Amigo have a fantastic campaign to find up and coming talent. They have a commitment to find and showcase undiscovered talent. This could be your chance to perform if selected!!  So submit your video auditions to 

The company will work closely with SEED, Gemma’s parents’ charity (Eating Disorder Support Services). Amigo Productions plan to open premises in the South East, Gemma’s home town of Hull, and across the UK. Gemma will also be offering one-to-one audition preparation and acting coaching for young performers.
