We have brought in a fantastic new circus co-producer for 2016

The Menagerie, Wellington’s long running monthly variety show is making some progressive changes for 2016. Director Rachel Rouge has brought in a young local circus performer Harlow Lestrange to produce 5 shows this year. Lestrange will be producing 5 of this year’s eleven shows starting with Saturday the 27th of February.
“Harlow is in complete control of booking the shows on every even numbered month, I’ll be producing the odd numbered months.” says Rouge. “We are really excited to have Harlow on board, she’s got experience as a producer from producing her own shows like the drawing event Dr Sketchy Wellington and burlesque revue Nerdlesque. She is also a talented circus performer so understands how to put a show together that will showcase the best of each act.”

Lestrange is a hula hoopist and fire performer currently studying a diploma in Circus Arts and Dance at Whitireia. She has put together a brilliant line up for the show on Saturday February 27th. 

Lestrange’s first Menagerie includes: Australian burlesque artist Glitta Supernova, poet Olivia Hall, celtic duo Faí, MC Miss Lizzie, charismatic Ladderman fresh from the World Buskers Festival, mime KBG Purple, comedians Sarah Harpur & Snap, and accordion music from Sunshine Cannery.
The Menagerie stage is bound to benefit from Lestrange’s fresh perspective, youthful vitality, new insights.
