The Fabulous Dame Farrar's Dazzling Display of Stupendous Acts for the Stage

Hothouse Theatre


Hothouse Theatre brings an outrageous cabaret tour de force to The Butter Factory Theatre in Wodonga this month. The Fabulours Dame Farrar‘s Dazzling Display of Stupendous Acts for the Stage is performed by singer and comedienne, Carita Farrer Spencer with her entourage of two,  Australian jazz musician (with a penchant for cross-dressing) and composer John Rodgers and Cirque du Soleil contortionist, Liu Jie. Celebrating the glory and disaster of Dame Farrar described as “a superbly talented vaudevillian performer and a disgraceful lush” this theatrical experience is said to be hilariously perverse. The Dame regales audiences with musical numbers which span an eclectic spectrum from Frank Sinatra to Madam Butterfly and the Pussycat Dolls.

Prepare for shock and awe… and a screaming good night!
