When a young ingénue, again played by singer-songwriter Brendan Maclean, slips behind the red velvet rope at the glamorous Velvet nightclub, he encounters dazzling acrobatics, disco divas, seductive chanteuses and a hot, pulsating atmosphere. The performance follows his seduction and his transformation as the nightclub changes and empowers him.

Director Craig Ilott has created a hedonistic world, pitting dazzling acrobatics against disco divas as this sexy and spectacular show channels the original Studio 54 nightclub.

Brendan stars alongside an international ensemble of circus, cabaret and music talent: dreamy muscle man Stephen Williams, hula boy extraordinaire Craig Reid, acrobatic wunderkind Mirko Köckenberger, sizzling aerialist Emma Goh, sassy sirens Chaska Halliday and Rechelle Mansour, musical director and mix master Joe Accaria and the legendary diva Marcia Hines.

Velvet will run from April 20 to May 15 in the Cremorne Theatre at QPAC in South Bank, Brisbane. Tickets are on sale now.
