“Millicent Sarre is exceptional. A singing voice that could take on many genres, stage presence, intelligence, wit and a rare song-writing gift to be celebrated.” – Lisa Lanzi, Theatre Travels.
Armed with a bright belty voice, witty songs about feminism, and a head of blonde curls, Millicent Sarre is a singer & songwriter, cabaret artist, music theatre performer and vocal coach.
Mim studied Music and Theatre at Graceland University, USA, before returning to her hometown of Adelaide, South Australia, where she has been actively involved in the music theatre scene. Her notable roles to date include Veronica Sawyer in Heathers the Musical (Segue Productions, 2019), Wendla Bergmann in Spring Awakening (Hills Musical Company 2017), Ivy in Ivy + Bean the Musical (The Gemini Collective, 2018 – Australian Premiere), Sally Brown in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown (Hills Musical Company, 2015) and Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors (Graceland University, 2013).
In June 2019, she premiered her first original cabaret show, Friendly Feminism for the Mild Mannered, in the Adelaide Cabaret Fringe. The show was sold-out, critically acclaimed, and nominated for an ATG award for Best Cabaret. The album of the original score of the show will be released in January 2020, and a return season of the show will be performed in the 2020 Adelaide Fringe.
