Join Three Cat Productions for Cabaret on the Lake. Cabaret on the Lake is a free, monthly variety show giving singers, storytellers, comedians, performance artists, musicians, dancers, poets, and solo artists of every type a place to develop their work.
Held the 2nd Friday of the month at the Berger Park Cultural Center, experienced performers split the bill with artists learning their craft or trying new material for the first time. Hosted by Rob Dorn – singer, storyteller, national Broadway musical theater tour veteran, and Green Mill regular. Curator and Creative Producer Laura Scruggs.

The Courtesan and The Cabin Boy are a musical comedy folk duo exploring fun through music, capable of playing almost any era and almost any style. You name it, we’ll try it! Renaissance, Steampunk, Modern, Post-Apocalyptic, Utopian Futuristic, and more.
But where did this esoteric duo begin? How did two voices of such divergent paths come togethet in harmony?Suzanne and Ordo met at the 2015 Stronghold Olde English Faire in Oregon, IL while their respective performing groups just happened to be singing there. It wasn’t until 6 months later when they met again at C2E2 2016 in Chicago that their collaborations began, and 3 months later they began performing together officially as The Courtesan and The Cabin Boy.
Together, they have performed at The New American Folk Theater’s Lilith Fair Cabaret, A Gathering of Rogues & Ruffians – a Renaissance Faire, Windycon 43 – King of the Nerds, Capricon 37 – and the Children Shall Lead, Magical Realm Fantasy Faire (formerly the Mystic Realm), Marseilles Renaissance Faire, YippieFest 2017, Stronghold Olde English Faire, and now, the Cabaret on the Lake at Berger Park.
They are also in the process of completing their second album, a collection of Holiday parody music entitled Krampus: Get in My Sack!, featuring favorite Holiday songs, reimagined in the theme of Krampus.
