Katya: The Minx From Minsk
6:30pm, Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 June (two performances)
Katya Ulyana Anastasiya Svet. Her passport has more names than stamps because she has never left Minsk. She’s dark, sexy and powerful at her core, even if she doesn’t know it yet.
Katya believes her true strength lies in becoming a Bond girl. In hot or cold blood, they can handle their guns, their men and their liquor.
With Melbourne soul-songstress Jessica Papst and a killer band led by Shanon Whitelock, it’s time to learn when to kiss and when to kill.
Nancy Sinatra – You Only Live Twice
6:30pm, Friday 22 to Sunday 24 June (three performances)
Danielle O’Malley is following her 2017 sell-out seasons of ‘You’re My World – The Cilla Black Story’, with a sexy, sassy tribute to another icon of 60s pop – Miss Nancy Sinatra! With swinging hits like Something Stupid, Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down), Summer Wine, Lightning’s Girl and These Boots are Made for Walkin’, plus a little gossip about dating Elvis and taking Ol’ Blue Eyes to parent/teacher night – this one is guaranteed to be a perfect night out for 60s music fans and footwear-fetishists alike!
‘The real quality is in O’Malley’s singing and her ability to capture Sinatra’s vocal essence…perfect.’ — The West Australian
‘Brilliant…this is a show not to be missed.’— Perth Cafe Culture
Written and Performed by Danielle O’Malley, Jeremy Stanford and Mark Jones. Directed by Jeremy Stanford. Musical direction by Mark Jones with a line-up of piano, bass, and percussion.
Fire Walk With Us: The Music Of Twin Peaks
8:30pm, Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 June (two performances)
Fire Walk With Us is a live re imagining of songs and music from both the Twin Peaks TV series soundtrack (1991) and the prequel film Fire Walk With Me (1992). Composed by Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch, this music is a masterclass in minimalist atmospheres, haunting vocals and sinister soundscapes.
This hypnotic performance work is produced and devised by Brisbane-based Electric Moon, who previously brought their barnstorming Bowie celebration Ziggy Stardust to Melbourne Cabaret Festival in 2016. Fire Walk With Us has completed two acclaimed performance seasons in Brisbane and brings together a broad range of musicians from the jazz based, to avant-garde noisemakers, to the four diverse vocalists – all bound together by a deep love for Lynch’s most celebrated work.
Practically Perfect – The Music of Julie Andrews

Now in one glorious stage production comes Practically Perfect celebrating the life and music of the legendary Dame Julie Andrews. Featuring her best known songs from Mary Poppins, My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music, Victor Victoria and more, interwoven with stories about her life on and off the stage, join us for an all singing, all dancing journey from the West End to Broadway and onto Hollywood, just Perfect!
