After nationwide rave reviews and audience acclaim, the ARIA nominated and award-winning hit show VELVET is back to dazzle audiences at Roslyn Packer Theatre for a strictly limited season from 27 July 2017.
Director Craig Ilott has created a hedonistic world, pitting dazzling acrobatics against disco divas as this sexy, spectacular, and slightly sadomasochistic show channels the original Studio 54 nightclub. Each performance invites the audience into an intoxicating glitterball world where the performers and the audience walk the fine line between the romantic and the audacious.
The international ensemble of circus, cabaret and music talent includes dreamy muscle man Stephen Williams, hula boy extraordinaire Craig Reid, acrobatic wunderkind Mirko Köckenberger, and sizzling aerialist Emma Goh.
Actor/singer Tom Oliver plays the young ingénue who slips behind the red velvet rope at the glamorous nightclub that is VELVET; Kaylah Attard and Rechelle Mansour are the two sassy sirens, and musical director and mix master Joe Accaria, all perform alongside the legendary diva, Marcia Hines.
A fantastic sensory overload, VELVET is funky, fresh, fun and sexy, that shocks, surprises and scintillates at every turn. It’s a party, it’s electrifying, and its exhilarating disco soundtrack never lets up from the opening moment.
“A crowd-pleasing spectacular that confounds expectations and delivers on all accounts.” – Australian Arts Review
Roslyn Packer Theatre, 22 Hickson Road, Walsh Bay (Sydney)
Season continues to 20 August 2017
