Mackay and Whitsunday Life
The sexy, sizzling, devilish show that makes you laugh so hard you feel like crying, is back in town and its cast of flamboyant characters are looking forward to welcoming audiences to opening night this evening.
Infamous The Show has been touring Queensland and returning to the Whitsundays on an almost annual basis, with organisers saying this iteration will see the return of our favourite acts plus a range of new twerks and tricks to keep us all entertained.
“The basis of the show is never going to change,” said performer Bekki Ashton.
“But acts do change and evolve constantly as new skills are learned – we don’t want to ruin any surprises but there are a lot of new elements to the show!
“Simon and Mimi do a fantastic act where they paint using UV light – art is getting painted while you are watching – it’s incredible!”
The big thrill acts have also gone up a notch with the ‘Wheel of Death’ now featuring three dare-devil performers and the skills on the Flying Trapeze are set to wow the crowd with a double full-twisting summersault and a triple summersault – both extremely difficult tricks that less than 10 people in Australia are able to achieve.
Other popular favourites include the raucous and ridiculous clown, Jessie as well as newcomer Blonde Bombshell who adds a classy sexiness.
The Spiegel big-top tent has become a fixture on the Cannonvale Plaza lawn, with every cast member helping to erect the massive structure.
On opening night, the cast will swap their overalls and work boots for eyelashes, sequins, high heels and thongs as they set out to captivate and caress their adoring crowd.
Guests will enjoy an entrance like no other, when the round-bottomed Infamous Dancers show you to your seat and serve refreshments from the bar.
This year, they are introducing two specialty cocktails – the aptly named Jessie’s Dick and the fantastical Fairy Flosstini.
“It’s like circus memories from when you are a kid but with a delicious adult twist,” said Bekki.
Infamous The Show is in Airlie Beach, on the green field next to Whitsunday Plaza, from Friday, April 1 to Sunday, April 10.
The show is for adults only.
