The Secret Life Of A Secretary: A Quirky New Cabaret

PAs, receptionists, admin staff and office workers of the world unite!  

You have nothing to lose, but… all that job stress this week when you laugh it all off with your colleagues in this great theatre night out!

We all know what really goes on in a corporate office – the backstabbing, the romance, the dramas…   Finally, here’s one secretary who isn’t afraid to talk (and even sing) about it!

The Secret Life of a Secretary
The Secret Life of a Secretary

Melbourne performer Claire de Freitas is springing straight out of the most recent Creating Solo Cabaret course and into her own feisty, frazzled and funny look at life in the corporate world.   This new and quirky debut show isn’t afraid to open the office briefcase and poke fun at all the crazy, cheeky, sexy things that go on behind the water cooler, under the business suits, and on those boardroom tables…

Turn off the work pager, slip off the high heels, unbutton the power jacket, and sit back with Miss Byrd as The Office meets Sex and the City for your chance to enjoy glamour, gossip – and one hell of a lunch break!

A Special Announcement…

When Was The Last Time You Got Really Excited About A Night Out?…

Gun Point

How do you like your theatre, then?   Are you:
* always Glamorous?
* into the Gothic?
* or a little GROTESQUE?

ONE show,
TWO nights a week,
THREE themed weekends to choose from… and announcing our THREE special guest artists!

GLAMOROUS
Week One: Fri/Sat 10.30pm July 31 – Aug 1

Break out the tails, the gloves, the gowns and the jewels!   When did you last get to really glam up for a night out?   This weekend, the gorgeous Jonathon Guthrie-Jones will be crooning in our gala In The Dead Of Night guest spot, and that fabulous dress you thought you’d never get to wear again is going to go so well with cocktails and a cult show…

GOTHIC
Week Two: Fri/Sat 10.30pm Aug  7 – 8

Calling the Twilight and Tim Burton fans – come vamp it up!   This week’s In The Dead Of Night cult show is all about the gothic.   So if you’re suave, sophisticated and just a little dangerous like our stunning guest artist Kirsten McMillan, this is the show for you.   You never know – you might meet your very own Edward: Cullen OR Scissorhands…

GROTESQUE
Week Three: Fri/Sat 10.30pm Aug 14 – 15

Bring on the freak show!   Ghouls and ghosts, villains and vixens, killers and carnies are not only welcome, but on our wish list.   Our guest artist is burlesque babe Miss Natalie Ristovska who’ll be sizzling up the stage, and we only want the naughtiest and nastiest monsters to come out for the last carnivalesque performances In The Dead Of Night this weekend…

IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT: The Hit Cult Show Returns

In The Dead Of Night
In The Dead Of Night

CABARET TURNS DEADLY

Australia’s first ‘choose your own adventure’ cabaret debuts in Melbourne… and it’s not for the faint of heart.

After directing professional cabaret and theatre for nearly a decade, Play Right Theatre founder Kim Edwards has channelled her dark side and finally released a long-time pet project of her own on the stage.

Edwards’ previous credits include children’s drama classes and Theatre In Education work, but it will be adults only when In The Dead Of Night: A Cult Show is let loose at The Butterfly Club in all its gothic, grotesque, and darkly funny glory.

“This is the product of my perverse pen and the dark recesses of my twisted mind” explained the lady herself, whose witty new work explores three lives at stake in a dangerous murder mystery, rife with black humour and suspense.

A major twist to this late night cult show is the uncertainty of its own cast members as to each story climax. Every evening, the audience are given control over the fate of the characters in ‘choose your own adventure’ style, meaning every performance is completely unique, and the possibilities are endless.

Three will finally meet,
Two will finally know.

One will certainly die…

Let the fun begin!
