Returning Sandfly Circus graduate Georgia Deguara will also make an appearance after completing her Bachelor of Circus Arts at the National Institute of Circus Arts in Melbourne. The night will be capped off with Broome’s magnificent Pearlesque Belles burlesque group led by Justine De Bruyn, and Melissa Arnott’s Mystic Moon Belly Dancers.

Theatre Kimberley artistic director Meredith Bell said Bust Out would return with some cheeky circus, musical and burlesque acts for the Pigram theatre events.

“We’re really lucky here in Broome to have some amazing local talent,” Ms Bell said.

“Interesting and talented people are drawn to Broome — we’ve invited some top-level cabaret and circus performers to join in the mix for a line-up that will be really sensational.

“Though each year is different, it’s always a hilarious occasion, and this year will be no exception.”

Show doors open at 7pm for an 8pm start and tickets are available from www.broomeciviccentre.com.au.

Shire of Broome acting director of development and community Kirsten Wood said the local government was pleased to partner with Theatre Kimberley to present the event.

“Broome has a talented and vibrant performing arts community and the Shire of Broome is excited to be able to support them, and to help bring top acts to town from around the country for local audiences to enjoy,” Ms Wood said.
