How We Help Non-Profits

Acts Of Kindness Cabaret is a performing arts non-profit that helps other Chicago-area non-profits raise money and cultivate donors by providing entertaining, professional cabaret performances at almost no cost.  In doing so, we also introduce new audiences to modern cabaret.



We offer 1- and 2-hour shows as benefit events.  In addition to the performance itself, we provide sound and lighting equipment, technical staff, set-up crew, ushers, and printed programs.  We work with each benefiting organization to find a suitable venue and to promote their event, primarily to their supporters.  The benefiting organizations sell tickets and, less reimbursing us our nominal expenses, keep all the proceeds.​  Learn more.



We fulfill the artistic portion of our mission by fulfilling the philanthropic one, and vice versa.  It is simple kindness from us to the non-profit community and those they serve.

What is Cabaret?

1/6

While cabaret has its roots in the chansons of Paris and the political satire of Berlin in the early 1900's, cabaret today is a much more family-friendly experience.



Cabaret now is an intensely personal evening of songs and stories, delivered by singers in a simple, honest way.  It employs music from all styles and eras, and each show has a theme that ties this eclectic bundle neatly together.  Unlike at the theatre, cabaret performers are on stage as themselves.  They maintain a direct dialogue with the audience throughout the performance.  Unlike concert performance, though, a cabaret show has a definite sense of beginning, middle, and end... just as every good story does.



Audience of all ages enjoy cabaret and, once they get a taste, they come back again and again.  Cabaret performances amuse, entertain, and inform.  They dazzle you, take you by surprise, make you laugh and cry, and take you on a wonderful journey.
