Cabaret for a Cause
Time Out says
Stunning burlesque queens and drag stars are performing to make a difference
There is no circumstance that cannot be made better with a bit of the old razzle dazzle. The best and sparkliest of Sydney’s underground performance scene are popping on some nipple tassels and dancing their butts off for a good cause, raising funds for First Nations communities impacted by the ongoing bushfire crisis this Sunday, January 26.
The vaudevillian vibes of intimate Newtown music hub the Vanguard will be revved up by a flock of stunning performers serving up retro burlesque charm and gender-bending drag. Performers include the queen of peach Eva Devore, feminist fatale Alyssa Kitt, high femme zodiac queen Sunday Best, Sydney’s saddest drag queen, Celeste Teal, sideshow elven drag king Marlena Dali, and more purveyors of ridiculous and raunchy stage craft.
Tickets sit at a rather reasonable $30 (plus booking fee), and all profits will be donated to the Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities GoFundMe initiative. Some of the assistance provided by donations includes temporary relocation costs, basic amenities and emergency relief costs, refurbishment of damaged property and replacement of vital items.
Snap up your tickets and mark the public holiday by supporting our Indigenous communities and seeing some spectacular performances.
