A glamorous evening of comedy, song, dance, and theatre.

The Adelaide Cabaret Festival Roadshow brings some of the best of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival line up directly to Pt Pirie and Port Lincoln for one evening only. Featuring performers handpicked by artistic directors Ali McGregor and Eddie Perfect, the character-fuelled performances are supported by a great band and entertaining host. Put on your finest and enjoy an unforgettable night seated on stage at the Northern Festival Centre or Nautilus Arts Centre.

You will also get to experience emerging young talent through the local recipient of this year’s Nathaniel O’Brien Class of Cabaret Scholarship!

Prepare yourself for a night of fun, high-energy, songs, stories and sequins.

  • Comedy music trio Tripod
  • Comedian Eddie Bannon (host)
  • Actor and Musician Cameron Goodall (Sydney Theatre Company, The Audreys)
  • Cabaret performers Mark Jones & Melissa Langton
