What a party Tallarook had recently.

Burlesque came to town and entertained to a sell out crowd at the Mechanics Institute. Locals and friends dressed to the nines; shimmied, laughed and were in total awe of the seductive, subversive, and electrifying acts by Caravan Burlesque.

The night was full of jaw-dropping cabaret and seductive spectacle, Ethiopian dance and razor sharp wit, sultry songs and underdressed sirens, Bollywood lovegods, sizzling jazz moves, backroom ballet and gothic divas.

Supported by Regional Arts Victoria, the committee of the Tallarook Mechanics Institute put on yet another fantastic theatre night; one of four held this year. Many community members helped on the night with special mention to those in the crowd who were seduced by strawberries by the Burlesque divas.

Hot-on-the-heels of sell-out character cabaret shows in Melbourne, Sydney, London, Edinburgh and New York, McQueen presents her first-ever Australian cabaret show as herself.

There will be a guest appearance by none other than waxer to the stars, Rosa Waxoffski, who has recently become a registered marriage celebrant. Coincidentally, McQueen has too...
