IT TAKES TWO

POLLY FILLA & FELICITY FROCKACCINO PRESENT A HILARIOUS NIGHT, JUST THE TWO OF THEM.


18 - 19 - 20 JANUARY
7:30pm

$28 SINGLE TICKET 
$25 GROUP OF 5+

What happens when you fuse comedy, cabaret and two ex-NZ drag artistes, now living in separate Australian cities together? DRAG MAGIC!

Inspired by pop culture, film and television shows, music and fashion tastes, drag performers Polly Filla and Felicity Frockaccino poke fun at and pay homage to their icons in an hour of zany fun and laugh out loud comedy.  Both Felicity and Polly originally grew up and started their drag careers in Wellington – the Capital of New Zealand, before moving across the ditch to Australia where sequin fabrics, high heels in a size 13 and employment for drag performers are much more plentiful.

Clocking up 21 years of performing in drag, Polly Filla is a popular fixture of the Melbourne Drag Scene and Felicity is a Sydney drag powerhouse, in her 12th year of drag.

Expect smatterings of sequins, synthetic hair, six inch heels, Shirley Bassey, smutty jokes and seat wetting as these two fake ladies present an hour of their favourite and most hilarious numbers.

This will be a night out you won't want to miss – three shows only!

GLITTERFIST: LIBERTINE

GLAMDROGYNY. DESIRE. RESISTANCE.


TUE 30 JAN - SAT 3 FEB
8:00pm

$27.50 SINGLE TICKET 
$25 GROUP OF 5+

Summoned into this world by the power of fierce femmes, gender rebels, trans-formers and beautiful queerdos, drag deity Glitterfist is on a mission to absolve shame, inspire worship and spread the gospel of pleasure, freedom and filth. Glitterfist and fellow divine non-binary babes Jessica McKerlie (Gender Spanner) and Six Inches Uncut (TAINT Cabaret) will seduce you with a surreal drag-burlesque tale of exploration and fantasy. Arrive curious and you will leave converted...

Dive into Glitterfist's hedonistic origins as they search for connection, get lost in desire, smacked hard with reality and discover a thirst for resistance. Glitterfist's imaginative storytelling creates a vibrant, sacred world that celebrates diverse genders and sexualities and playfully encourages audiences to join Glitterfist and worship themselves. Surrender to glamdrogynous seduction and find your own divinity in the cheekiest, filthiest ways imaginable.

GRANNY BINGO

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS FOR OUR POST MIDSUMMA EDITION
MONDAY 5 FEBRUARY
7:00pm

$10 SINGLE TICKET 

The controversial rockstars of bingo; Edith Vale and Maureen McGuillicuddy, are bringing their monthly bingo night to Midsumma. These two stalled warts of the international bingo circuit are so far right wing; anti-equality, anti-feminist, anti-immigration and anti-personal hygiene, that even their family stopped visiting a long time ago.

Granny Bingo has been a massive night over the last twelve months - a hilariously inappropriate evening of bingo where bingo is the last thing on anyone’s minds. Special guests have included Rhonda Burchmore, Geraldine Hickey, Joel Creasey, Geraldine Quinn, Celia Pacquola, Nath Valvo, Denise Scott, Mel Buttle, Tom Ballard, Bev Killick, Dolly Diamond, Tina Del Twist, Jude Perl, Fiona O'Loughlin, Kirsty Webeck, Cherylyn Barnes, Rhy Nicholson, Chrissie Swan, Simon Burke, Karen from Finance, Josh Thomas, Anne Edmonds and Peter Hitchener.

$10 entry on the door for the whole night. Tables can be reserved by clicking on THIS LINK.


THERE ARE 35 UNRESERVED SEATS AND STANDING ROOM AVAILABLE TO 1ST COME 1ST SERVED ON THE NIGHT.  BE AT THE DOORS FROM 6PM.
