A cabaret as classsy as a fine wine brought to us by nine South Australian performers. Cabernet Refined joins classically trained vocalists and dancers together on stage with acrobatics and improv. This is a bold, sultry speakeasy-style evening best enjoyed with a group of pals.
The Big Slapple at the Adelaide Convention Centre, 14–15 & 21 Feb, 7:30pm & 9pm
The night out equivalent of queering Alice in Wonderland, Blunderland is a psychedelic trip straight from a tea party with lashings of circus, cabaret and burlesque. A regular and hugely popular night at Brooklyn's The House of Yes nightclub, Blunderland now arrives in Adelaide to take us down to a warren of kaleidoscopic rabbit holes.

Singin' in the Pain brings together performers with disabilities and those with chronic pain. Hosted and produced by Adelaide's own burlesque star Diana Divine, the night makes for an indiscriminate celebration of the body.

Carla Mattiazzo is no stranger to bringing a vulnerable honesty to cabaret. Her 2018 show That's Life centred on the disappearance of her mother. In her latest performance she is telling us a love story, lots of love stories, and asking: does there always have to be a catch?
The Adina Treasury Tunnels, 18 Feb–14 Mar, not Sun/Mon, 8:30pm
Bring your wild side for a late-night, high-risk drinking session with Tash York and a line-up of her most reckless friends. The debauched and after-hours atmosphere is balanced by the talented accompaniment of a swing jazz six-piece live band.

A heady blend of anthems and live performances, Poof Doof's favourite gay rave Snap Crackle Pop brings all your favourite hits out to play. It's like a remix of your best house party – and where everyone can sing along.

It's five years since the original Velvet premiered at Adelaide Fringe and now you can join Marcia Hines and a ten-strong cast of performers as the journey continues. A groovy night of high-wire circus, acrobatics and glitter balls with the ultimate disco soundtrack.
