Theatre Kimberley will host an adults-only performance of Bust Out Cabaret this month and introduce a new show for children.

The performance will be held at Broome Convention Centre from 7pm on August 20 and 21, with the children’s Little Bit Bust Out show starting at 1.30pm on August 21.

Theatre Kimberley artistic director Meredith Bell said audiences were in for a special treat this year, with several high-achieving Broome artists on the bill.

“COVID-19 has restricted travel for Australian artists who would normally be performing overseas at European festivals like Edinburgh Fringe Festival,” she said.

“Crystal Stacey, Georgia Deguara (YUCK Circus) and Rowan Thomas (The Splash Test Dummies) will be joined by Jamie Bretman and Simon Wright, also from The Splash Test Dummies, and Will Tredinnick (Table for Two).

“They will come together with talented local performers like Franque Batty, Jaime Jackett, the Pearlesque Belles, Mystic Moon Belly Dancers, and pole dancers from the Hangar Aerial Fitness Studio in a unique one-off show.”

Bell said Bust Out promised to be a hilarious, surprising and daring blend of cabaret, circus, comedy, dance and music.

Also on the cards for the first time is a family-friendly performance earlier in the day — added to the line-up after years of demand from patrons.

Bell said Little Bit Bust Out would be an afternoon of amazing acrobatics and rib-cracking comedy.

The event follows the same delivery as the evening entertainment, with professional performers from Broome uniting with the multiple award-winning Splash Test Dummies.

“Being (part of) Sandfly Circus from age 11, I’m now travelling the world with my award-winning company YUCK Circus and it’s great to come full-circle,” Little Bit Bust Out producer Deguara said.

“I’m really proud to be producing a high-action professional cabaret for a family audience in my own community, especially knowing that the parents are going to have as much fun as the kids.”

Tickets are available via Humanitix or at the door unless sold out.
