This month, on Saturday the 24th of September, our variety show at the Fringe Bar will be hosted by seasoned storyteller Caroline Welkin, and feature another wonderful collection of talented performance oddities like hoop dancer Harlow Lestrange, burlesque performer Kiki Kisses, aerialist Pande-monium, magician Maor Ben-Shahar, comedian Josh Davies, singer Bea Lee-Smith, and uncategorisable acts like poetry from all round vaudevillian Victor Victorious and humorous social commentary ukulele music from Free & Frank.
Wellington reviewers Art Murmurs said this about the Menagerie: “The performers were equally balanced between emerging artists and established performers. Each of them obviously being chosen for their talent and stage presence, both of which was notably high across the board”.
Also “The rhythm of the show was put together in a way that had the audience surprised and engaged at the artistic turns; for a long show we never felt bored or restless”. Read the full review on their website.
Producer Rachel Rouge says “Each show is completely different, the MC has a huge effect on the vibe of the show so we try to mix it up as much as possible, we’ve had hilarious comedians, bouncy circus stars, sultry burlesque dancers. This month we have Caroline, a sarcastic storyteller comedian from Upper Hutt. We can’t wait.”
Come along and see what the September show brings.
