The Menagerie variety show goes monthly

The Menagerie variety show goes monthly

The Menagerie has been bringing diverse and entertaining acts to Wellington’s Fringe Bar since November last year, and now this variety show will be a monthly event. After the next show on Saturday May 24th, The Menagerie will have a regular spot on the last Saturday of every month.

Producer Rachel Rouge is looking forward to the challenge of putting together a new and interesting show every month. “We’ve certainly got the talent” says Rouge “Wellington has an abundance of skilled performers in every genre.”

The Menagerie on May 24th features music, poetry, burlesque, singing, comedy, magic, drag, and body suspension.

“We are particularly excited about the body suspension from Suspended inTension, they’ll be body piercing one of their crew and suspending them in the air by hooks” says Rouge. “I watched their run through and was expecting it to be either too gory, or too clinical, but the crew work together creating a really beautiful performance, it is incredibly elegant and mesmerizing.”

The Menagerie strives to bring unique and diverse acts to the stage. This variety show wants every audience member to walk away having experienced something beautiful, funny, memorable, sometimes confrontational and always entertaining.

“We look forward to having a monthly spot, we’ll be on the last Saturday of every month, except December... not during the December holidays, we are not totally crazy.”

The next show is on Saturday the 24th of May at The Fringe Bar, 26 Allen Street, Doors open at 7pm, and show starts at 8pm.
