HEY BRISBANE, BOOGIE WONDERLAND IS BACK!
Mark the diary for November 17 Brisbane because Boogie Wonderland is back! Introducing VELVET REWIRED, a glittering spectacle of circus, cabaret and a dazzling love-letter to disco, it opens in the Raine & Horne Wynnum Spiegeltent as part of the Wynnum Fringe on November 17. TICKETS ON SALE TOMORROW, MONDAY AUGUST 2 at wynnumfringe.com
Since its world premiere in 2015, born in the sequins and disco dust of the Adelaide Fringe Festival, this original big, bold and beautiful extravaganza has travelled the globe to thunderous applause and sold-out performances. Six years later and 1,200 shows on, from the Sydney Opera House to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this disco-fuelled cabaret spectacular is BACK BABY as a brand new, revamped, reinvented celebration! Imagery in link below.
This fresh, total reinvented extension of the Velvet journey continues to chart the progress of a young man on his path of self-discovery. He returns to the club known as ‘Velvet’ and is again embraced by its inhabitants. Blind to colour, creed, class, gender, size and sexuality, Velvet Rewired continues the underlying theme of celebration, family and freedom!
Led by the fearlessly fabulous Marcia Hines (Jesus Christ Superstar, HAIR), Craig Reid (La Clique, La Soirée) returns as the Incredible Hula Boy and DJ Joe Accaria (Once, Dream Lover) stars as DJ and mix-master, alongside a dazzling array of acrobats, aerialists and vocalists, it’s a euphoric dose of disco fever peppered with glitter – not to mention an epic disco soundtrack that will have fans boogying all the way to wonderland.
All this in an age of uncertainty and compromise, Velvet Rewired is a story of hope, resilience and bravery as the production rolls the dice on recovery, ticket sales and a future for Australian theatre.
Velvet Rewired fuses music, circus and burlesque and this disco inferno results in an insatiably flawless theatrical experience with a dazzling array of acrobats, aerialists, amazing vocalists, glitz, glamour and jaw-dropping circus skills!
Velvet Rewired has always been a nightclub, a state of mind and a fantasy! Join the cast in the Raine & Horne Wynnum Spiegeltent for an exhilarating night of fun, funk and fabulous music.
