Cheeky Cabaret, Live at The Star Court Theatre Lismore

Roll up, roll up! The Brunswick Picture House is giddy with excitement to be taking its signature show, Cheeky Cabaret, on the road to the big smoke of Lismore for the inaugural ArtState Festival.

After laying dormant for over 30 years, the curtains lifted on the old theatre in Brunswick Heads with a new lease on life, lovingly restored by the creative team behind the award-winning, internationally-acclaimed circus/cabaret sensations La Soirée and Club Swizzle. Since opening in March 2016 with an eclectic mix of live shows, film events, documentaries, music and all-ages gigs, word has spread far and wide about the rejuvenation of the Brunswick Picture House and its programming, including its monthly extravaganza, Cheeky Cabaret.

Bold and brash, sexy and dangerous, with tongue placed firmly in cheek, this is one party you will not want to miss! Smashing together circus, vaudeville, comedy and everything in between, Cheeky Cabaret has rightfully become the talk of the town. After twenty years of causing trouble around the world and working with the best, it’s now time for the crème de la crème of these troubadours, miscreants and cabaret queens to storm the cultural capital of the Northern Rivers.

See you at the Star Court Theatre for a night that audiences will be talking about for years to come! As the locals in Bruns know by now, “bring Grandma but leave the kids at home.”

Auto Bio Queen

A moving story, featuring dazzling cabaret performances from some of Melbourne's finest

From the time she was old enough to lipsync Beni Lola (Natasha Jynel) knew that she wanted to be a Drag Queen. There was just one problem. Girls can't be Drag Queens, right?

Auto Bio Queen explores the life story of Beni Lola through dazzling cabaret performances starring Karen From Finance, Bumpa Love, Fipe Preuss, Hannie Helsden, Rolly and of course, Beni Lola. This journey of self-discovery will touch anyone who has ever searched for somewhere to belong. Nothing is off limits in this story of exploration and acceptance, reminding us of what ties us all together and how the story of one can connect us all. Inspired by Todd Solondz's Palindromes and Jonathan Caouette's Tarnation, Auto Bio Queen blurs the lines between autobiography and art, and brings to life the age old question from Mama Ru "if you can't love yourself how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?"

Natasha Jynel's work as a creative director, writer and performer (under Beni Lola) can be seen in publications such as Archer Mag and SBS, music videos for Le1f and on stage in productions such as Threadbare which debuted at Melbourne Fringe Festival 2016.
