Two former Ballarat students have created a sassy new cabaret for this year’s Melbourne Fringe Festival.
Theatre producer Vito Midolo and writer/performer Aubrey Flood both studied Music Theatre at Federation University, developing a strong passion for cabaret.
Together they have created Tudor Roses, a cabaret exploring what it was to be a queen in 16th century England to being a “yas queen” – a popular expression celebrating excitement or praise for someone – today.
The show explores how being a queen in historical times was tough, rife with lust, greed, divorce and death. Tudor Roses explores how many of the tribuations that plagued the queens of 16th century England are still rife in our society today.
With a strong feminist bent, the cabaret is filled with nudity, costumes, comedy and music, and aims to re-examine the past.
The show will be held September 24 to October 1 at the Melbourne Lithuanian Club. To book tickets, visit www.melbournefringe.com.au
