    Life Is A Cabaret & don’t You Forget It!.

    The time was pre WWII and the world was going crazy! Two countries were about to collide, having nothing in common, the Germany & America people had only one place to hide, heading underground to a place…

    And where everybody indulged in
    decadents and naughty
    And craved to be anybody but who they were…

    Tickets are only $60 and include a delicious set 3 course meal or $30 for the show only and you can choose from our full al la carte menu on the night.

    ASCIAK’S TRIBUTE TO THE FELINE ATTITUDES OF CABARET’S FIRST SEX KITTEN, EARTHA KITT, IS PURRRFECT!

    With sell-out seasons across Australia including Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, and performances in Berlin and Paris, Miss Danielle Asciak is one of this year’s most anticipated cabaret jazz acts. Her sexy, delightful & unpretentious cabaret will premiere at Tokyo Fringe Festival presented by The Garage International 1 & 2 November, and Seoul Fringe Festival 8 & 9 November.

    Asciak embodies the traditional femme fatale of cabaret, singing a selection of signature tunes from Kitt’s repertoire of cynically empowered love-songs including ‘Cest si bon’, ‘I Wanna be Evil!’, and ‘Just an Old Fashioned Girl’. Add to this belly dancing and champagne and the sultry songstress will serenade audiences in four languages, reflecting on the lessons we can learn from Kitt’s fearless approach to life and love.

    "Asciak is the consummate cabaret performer; beautiful, funny, confident, with a fantastic voice: and this is a consummate performance.
    A must see cabaret." theatreguide.com.au

    Graduating from the University of Melbourne & Conservatorium of Music in 2010 with a double bachelor of Music Performance/Arts, this home-grown Melbourne talent has trained with acclaimed vocal coach Gary May (LaSalle Performing Arts Academy, Singapore) and is now identified as ‘one of the most exciting new cabaret stars’ (The Australian).

    Nominated for the Vinaceous Cabaret Award, Fringe World 2014 (Perth).

    “Miss Asciak assumed and triumphed under the guise of Eartha Kitt with a gorgeously constructed program. Grrr, indeed” – LIMELIGHT MAGAZINE “It’s undeniable that cabaret performer Danielle Asciak is talented.” - BEAT MAGAZINE

    Asciak is fast empowering audiences with her mix of original and iconic jazz, soul, Hollywood vintage repertoire.
