STARRING…

PAUL CAPSIS

PAUL CAPSIS

Rock god, diva, ingenue, and icon of Australian stage and screen. Direct from starring in La Soirée in London, we proudly welcome home a national treasure to tear the roof off The Standard on Valentine’s Day.

THE WAU WAU SISTERS

THE WAU WAU SISTERS

Legends of the NYC underground and darlings of the international festival fringe, the Wau Wau Sisters straddle the hilarious gap between performance art and burlesque. “Irreverent, sacrilegious, foul-mouthed and uninhibited” (NY Times)

LE GATEAU CHOCOLAT

LE GATEAU CHOCOLAT

An operatic diva with a killer baritone and a passion for laughter (and Lycra), Le Gateau Chocolat delivers outrageous yet moving renditions of everything from pop-rock to opera in his inimitable style.

CANDY BOWERS

CANDY BOWERS

Candy Bowers is at large, curvaceous, and loud: as a writer, hip-hop artist (and one half of the wildly successful Sista She), actor, director, arts worker, theatre maker, lyricist and social activist. Words are her tools of seduction – funny, political, intelligent and thought-provoking.

BRENDAN MACLEAN

BRENDAN MACLEAN

When he’s not busy unearthing new talent on Triple J, or acting alongside Leo DiCaprio in Baz Lurhmann’s Gatsby, Brendan Maclean is a piano-wielding powerhouse of musical creativity. Having released his debut EP White Canvas last year to wide acclaim, he is an artist to watch in 2011.

QUEENIE VAN DE ZANDT

QUEENIE VAN DE ZANDT

From Smoke & Mirrors to All Saints, Queenie van de Zandt has done it all. As an actor, comedian, vocalist and writer (not to mention her brilliantly repellent comedic alter-ego Jan van de Stool), Queenie is one of Australia’s most versative and well-loved performers.

TYRAN PARKE

TYRAN PARKE

Tyran Parke has forged a reputation as one of Australia’s pre-eminent musical and theatrical artists, turning his talents to everything from Sondheim to Shakespeare. In 2012 Tyran will direct the Sydney premiere of Pulitzer-winning musical Next to Normal.

EMMA DEAN

EMMA DEAN

Emma Dean is fast emerging as a captivating and distinctive Australian musical voice. Deftly weaving a path between effervescent piano-driven pop and the theatricality of cabaret, Emma’s crystal-clear soprano infuses her intensely personal songs with a heightened sense of drama.

LANCE HORNE

    LANCE HORNE      musical director

Lance Horne is an Emmy-award winning composer-lyricist, and an internationally acclaimed musical director and arranger to artists including Alan Cumming, Meow Meow and Justin Bond. Lance released his debut album in 2011, and regularly composes for film, theatre and television projects.
