After first becoming a sensation at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2015, international success story Velvet Rewired is returning to theatres around Australia in 2022 and 2023.

The music, dance and circus extravaganza has a new and reinvented production ready to entertain the country’s audiences, ensuring it’s coming back bigger and better than ever. Director Craig Ilott (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Pillowman) has reimagined the show in order to maintain a sparkling sense of freshness.

Beloved theatre star Marcia Hines (Hair, Shrek The Musical) is back in the role of The Diva, accompanied by Joe Accaria (Gypsy, DrummerQueens) as The DJ, and Craig Reid (holder of multiple Guinness World Records for hula-hooping) as Hula Boy. A cast of internationally-renowned circus, dance, and vocalist performers will back the trio up in a fusion of glitz, glamour, and unforgettable skills.

At Velvet Rewired, audiences should expect sensory overload, a spectacular spectacle and, above all, a night of high-quality theatre. As In Daily wrote in a previous five-star review, Velvet Rewired is a “flawless, exhilarating show that leaves audiences uplifted, charged and ready to boogie on into the night.” “Velvet completely redefines cabaret as a disco inferno… shocks, surprises, and scintillates at every turn,” the Adelaide Advertiser hailed in an equally positive review.

You can find out further information via the show’s official website.
