KAYE SERA Saturday 24 January 4pm

A multi-talented singer, writer and media personality best known for her Breakfast radio work on JOY (94.9FM). She has also appeared on Bent TV (Channel 31) and on many drag stages around town – but don’t hold that against her.

Kaye’s cabaret act has been a popular addition to Midsumma and other Melbourne Festivals for several years. Kaye is one of the few Australian drag performers to sing live and has fostered a loyal fan base through her cabaret and other stage work.

MAX SHARAM Saturday 31 January 4pm


“Max is an award-winning artist of tremendous talent, one of the rising stars of the music and comedy world…”
(Dir George Miller- Mad Max, Babe..)

Recently returned from living in Manhattan and Berlin, ARIA-award winner Max brings story and song, wit and wickedness to a very fitting venue.


“Seemingly possessed by the soul of a punk rock angel and capability to evoke theatrics of Shakespearean magnitude with just a slight vocal inflection, Australian Max Sharam unravels fairy tales & lovelorn melodrama …” – LA Weekly

www.maxsharam.com

Max also performs her full cabaret show at The Butterfly Club

Dates: Wednesday 4 to Saturday 7 February (four performances)

Time: All shows at 9.00 pm

YANA ALANA Saturday 7 February 4pm


She’s frightening, alarming, but very, very funny.’ Melbourne Star

A performance poet and lady-of-certain-talents, Yana Alana is an old fashioned diva with a potty mouth and an outlook which is female-centric and decidedly not politically correct.

Yana Alana is the alter ego of Sarah Ward, also known as MC Sheila from SistaShe. A night with Yana may include tantrums, the hurling of targeted abuse, divine singing, acrobatic dancing and some incisive home truths. She has certainly devoured the boy in flamboyant.

Winner of the Melbourne Fringe Cabaret Award 2007

BITE ME nominated for 7 Green Room awards
