Adelaide's Michaela Burger will perform her award-winning cabaret show A Migrant's Son in Ceduna this April, but the show needs a community choir.

A Migrant's Son, which premiered at the 2018 Adelaide Cabaret Festival, explores true stories of Greek migration to Australia in the 1930s.

Ms Burger is calling on the local community to bring out their singing voices as she searches for a choir to add an extra element to her cabaret.

"It's a wonderful way to bring the community into the performance and to hear their beautiful voices together just lifts the experience," she said.

During the 2019 tour, 59 choir members from regional choirs joined Ms Burger across four performances, with overwhelmingly positive feedback about the experience.

Adelaide-based musician Carol Young will be touring regional South Australia in February ahead of Ms Burger's performances around regional South Australia.

Anybody who wants to sing or has a background in singing is encouraged to register their interest with Country Arts SA's Shows on The Road and community engagement producer Tammy Hall on tammy.hall@countryarts.org.au or 8444 0411.

Choir members will perform in A Migrant's Son on Wednesday, April 1 at Thevenard's Greek Community Club.

Tickets are available now for the show, from countryarts.org.au/events/a-migrants-son/.
