For last year’s Mardi Gras, Velma Vegas played to sold out houses at the Seymour Centre portraying Judy Garland, Barbra, Streisand, Liza Minellei and Bette Middler amongst others! And in 2015, she starred in SCREAMERS! (Best Musical Theatre/Cabaret, Sydney Fringe).
Velma will be back at the 2017 Sydney Mardi Gras to rock the Seymour Centre again in a brand new live cabaret show for Sydney – The Vegas Lounge! It’s a raucous rollercoaster ride through the best of disco, pop, and diva classics from the 60s to today!
Part karaoke, part cabaret, and part comedy sideshow, this will be a live Sydney cabaret show for all, complete with classic pop culture clips, kooky quiz bits, and heaps of fun giveaways!
Velma will be joined each night by a surprise up-and-coming CALD Guest Act, plus seasoned Femme Fatale Guest Stars including:
February 3 Celia Curtis as Anita Douche!
February 10 The Beauteous Betty Grumble!
February 17 Vashti Hughes as Voice Coach Larry!
February 24 Liesel Badorrek as Lil Piggy Lil!
March 3 Lucy Suze Taylor as Cher!
Yes – ‘Diversity’s’ the word for The Vegas Lounge at Sydney Mardi Gras 2017, so come one, come all! It’s funny, fast-paced, and topical, a kind of queer and edgy Big Gig, only with Disco Anthems, Sing-alongs, Beer & Wine Bar and Prizes! And nestled between Redfern, Newtown & Oxford Street, it’s also Party Central for Mardi Gras 2017! So grab a drink at the Lounge Bar and join us to celebrate!
