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.”
