Georgia Darcy is a cabaret performer with wit and pizazz and has been described as a “glittering powerhouse” on stage. Making something of a “comeback” here, she is a darling of the Diverse-City community, having performed at every venue since their start-up. Georgia is thrilled to be back at DC for a sassy, sensational set that will make you want to get to lots more Cabaret Fringe shows. Come and be embraced by the fabulous, inclusive and loving DC family – and please let Georgia know if you notice any wardrobe malfunctions – although she is somewhat of an exhibitionist and so we suspect many of these are intentional!

Alison Kimber

Alison is a singer, storyteller and entertainer. Her audiences warm to her intimate, honest and hilarious portrayals of real life. After performing in theatre and musicals in her teens and 20s, Alison returned to the stage decades later at Cabaret Live! – the acclaimed open-mic night at Adelaide’s former home of cabaret, La Boheme. From there she created and performed several original shows including ‘Musical Skeletons in my Closet’, ‘Loveaholic’, ‘The Power of a Sequin’ and ‘Sixty, Sassy and Celebrating’, performing at the Adelaide Fringe, Cabaret Under the Star and the Cabaret Fringe Festivals.

Shelley Dunstone

Shelley Dunstone is a former Commercial Litigation lawyer with additional qualifications in Marketing and Applied Finance. She believes we are all capable of amazing ourselves with what we can achieve.

Her story of becoming a cabaret artiste and staging her own original shows will persuade your people that with practice, planning and perseverance, they can achieve anything. She will entertain your audience with clean humour and maybe even a song or two.
