Cirque Africa

Venue: The Regal Theatre
A great modern circus show really is something to behold! Proudly labelling themselves as “100% African, 100% Energy, 100% Fun”, Cirque Africa is a truly unique performance that combines acrobats, dancers, percussionists, musicians, contortionists and stunning African costumes into one high energy extravaganza. 

Suitable for all ages, this 100% African cultural experience aims to transport audiences to the positive side of Africa with its modern stage performance.

Did You Hear What I Saw (Children’s Event)

Venue: Studio at Subiaco Arts Centre
Entertaining and thought provoking, Did You Hear What I Saw is the story of the lasting friendship between Tom Skelton (who happens to be registered blind) and Tom GK (a music-obsessed performer who began losing his hearing in his 20s due to a genetic disease).

Filled with great songs and lots of silliness, this fantastic stage show is perfect for parents looking to entertain their kids while helping to expose them to a different perspective on life.

Red Light Confidential

Venue: Stellar Lounge at Subiaco Hotel

Like your Fringe shows saucy and a tad unpredictable? This acclaimed touring variety show offers visitors the chance to experience the best in local and international Burlesque, Circus, Cabaret, Music, Comedy and Magic. 

No two shows are ever the same, and we never know what will happen on the night. The only thing that is assured is that you’ll have a fantastic time.


Venue: Studio at Subiaco Arts Centre
Got some boisterous young ones to entertain? Then AAAAND NOW FOR MORE KIDDO CHAOS!! is just what you’re looking for!

Blending a rambling mixture of comedy and performance into a single high energy show. It features a crazy mash of absurd improvised games that are driven by the audience’s live suggestions. 

Each unique performance is stuffed with hilarious characters and a barrel full of daft jokes. Just be prepared for lots of shouting, laughing, screaming and generally amazing kiddie chaos fun.

Be More Chill The Musical
