VELVET, billed as “A Divine Discotheque Circus” is currently exciting Sydney theatregoers at the Roslyn Packer Theatre, Walsh Bay. This ARIA nominated and award winning hit show has announced that due to popular demand, its Sydney season will be extended for a further two weeks and will run until Sunday 20 August.
VELVET lets the audience experience a funky, fun and sexy night at an upbeat disco, complete with glitterball and a non-stop exhilarating disco soundtrack, that never lets up from the opening moment.
Director Craig Ilott has created a hedonistic world, pitting dazzling acrobatics against disco divas as this sparkling show channels the original Studio 54 nightclub. This international ensemble of circus, cabaret and music includes muscle man Stephen Williams, hula boy extraordinaire Craig Reid, acrobatic wunderkind Mirko Köckenberger, sizzling aerialist Emma Goh, Kaylah Attard and Rechelle Mansour as the two sassy sirens plus actor/singer Tom Oliver who plays the young ingénue who slips behind the red velvet rope at the glamorous nightclub that is VELVET as well as musical director and mix master Joe Accaria, alongside the legendary diva Marcia Hines.
