The Seymour Centre is the home to the majority of our program with five fabulous spaces to enjoy our incredible lineup.
We have renamed all the theatres after legendary Sydney cabaret venues, turning the entire place into a Cabaret Wonderland.
Read a bit below about our spaces:
Our largest venue, named after the famous cinema / performance space in Glebe is the home to Cheeky Cabaret, and our Petit Cabaret for the kids. Valhalla was the place audiences first saw the legend that became Reg Livermore when he starred as Frank N’ Furter in “The Rocky Horror Show” in the original Australian production.
Chequers will be home to some of our favourite cabaret superstars, transporting you back to the legendary nightclub of the 60s. Chequers on Goulburn st was the hottest nightspot in Sydney for years, with star acts including Shirley Bassey, Liza Minnelli and Sammy Davis Jr!
THE TILBURY ROOM
Tilbury legends Jonathan Biggins and Phil Scott will headline the room named after the legendary Sydney pub in Wooloomooloo. Owned by Geoffrey Williams and Michael Freundt, the Tilbury was the place to go for cabaret for most of the 90s. Here legends like Tony Sheldon, Genevieve Lemon, Jeanne Little and many more trod the boards, especially in the famous Tilbury Pantos.
Named after one of the greatest drag revue bars on Oxford St, Capriccios is our smallest room in which to get properly up close and personal. Capriccio’s was owned by Dawn O’Donnell and featured high-end production shows in its upstairs theatre. Here you could see celebrities like Debbie Reynolds mixing with star performer Rose Jackson!
THE PIANO BAR
Upstairs at the Seymour, come on down where the gin is cold and the piano’s hot! Our nightly piano bar operates across the festival, with special late shows on the weekends. Sign up to hear more exciting information as we appproach.
