Velvet

This ode to disco takes a selection of dangerous acts of abandon, dance, live vocals, acrobatics, circus and burlesque and mixes them together in a glamorous and sexy Studio 54-esque nightclub with a pulsating discothèque soundtrack.  The result: the hottest new show on the global festival circuit!    This endorphin rush of a show is full on energy from start to finish with genuine shocks, scintillation and surprises at every turn.

Directed by Craig Ilott (Smoke and Mirrors), Velvet features La Soirée headliner Stephen Williams, singer/ songwriter Brendan Maclean, Mix Master Joe Accaria and the legendary Aussie diva Marcia Hines.  This unique combination of stars, beauty, talent, music and madness provides a vibrant, breathtaking and seductive explosion of controlled excitement!

Velvet is for all those who remember the nights of disco and for those of us who wish we had been there!   Join us behind the velvet rope at a musical cabaret for all ages.
