A Starry Festival, featuring an exciting line-up of four cabaret, theatre and live shows, including two Adelaide Premieres, will sparkle this month.
Playing at The Regal Theatre from Thursday 19 November through to Sunday 21 November, a line up of spectacular entertainers will welcome in the festive season.
Featuring Carlotta, Trevor Ashley, Kym Purling and Tim Draxi, A Starry Festival is set to light up the gorgeous Regal.
Line up is as follows:
CARLOTTA in I’M NOT DEAD YET, DARLINGS!
Following a sell out season at Adelaide Fringe, Carlotta is back in Adelaide with a new show I’m Not Dead Yet, Darlings! for A Starry Festival 2020 with more stories and songs from 50 years on and off the stage. Australian icon, political activist and living legend, Carlotta has led an extraordinary life: good times, bum times, she’s seen them all and my dear, she’s still here. Carlotta will be accompanied on piano by Helpmann Award winner Michael Griffiths.

TREVOR ASHLEY in RING THEM BELLS!, A VERY LIZA XMAS!
Australian queen of cabaret, Trevor Ashley, brings his brand new Liza Minnelli show to town. In the most fun way to cap off the craziest of years, Ms Minnelli will stumble her way through a fabulously festive catalogue of songs, with smatterings of mistletoe and lashings of egg nog. From Silver Bells to White Christmas, Liza will regale you with stories from her childhood with Mama under the tree, and that time she missed it completely while dancing at Studio 54.
