For last year’s Mardi Gras, Velma Vegas played to sold out houses at the Seymour Centre in Judy, Barbra, Liza, Bette! And in 2015, she starred in SCREAMERS! (Best Musical Theatre/Cabaret, Sydney Fringe). Velma’s 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!
One part disco, one part comedy sideshow, this is a live Sydney cabaret show for all, complete with kooky quiz bits and heaps of fun giveaways! Velma will be joined each night by renowned Indigenous artist Blak Douglas with thunderous didj to disco beat, then special Guest Stars vary each night including:
February 3 Celia Curtis as Anita Douche, and Joseph Chetty!
February 10 The Beauteous Betty Grumble and Simone Saunders!
February 17 Liesel Badorrek as Lil Piggy Lil , and Sarah Birdgirl!
February 24 Vashti Hughes as Voice Coach Larry and Dyan Tai!
March 3 Lucy Suze Taylor as Cher and Martin Charles Badway!
So come more than once to see different shows! Yes – ‘Diversity’s’ the word for The Vegas Lounge at Sydney Mardi Gras 2017! It’s funny, fast-paced, and topical, with Disco Anthems, 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!
