An upcoming cabaret and dinner show aims to showcase the talents of Tasmania.

Minx Cabaret Company director Shelley Spencer said the show was now in its fifth year.

“I started it because it’s the style of performing I really love,” she said.

“And, there was none of that in Launceston.

“We have such a thriving arts scene that I thought we’d be supported.”

Ms Spencer said the performing in the show was a great “stepping stone” for young Tasmanian performers to gain stage experience in a professional environment. 

The show will feature some of the best artists that Tasmania had to offer, as well as visiting guests.

Headliners for this year’s show include Matthew Garwood – the Tattooed Tenor, blues and roots artist Luke Parry, Gypsy Rose’s Trudy Barnes, and NSW professional vocalist Lisa Core Flanagan, and radio personality and comedian Dan Taylor, alongside a cast of about 20 performers.

Ms Spencer said Barnes in particular was excited to branch out. 

“She’s very talented with other types of performance,” she said.

“She’ll be a very popular addition.”

Ms Spencer said people could expect a classy dinner show, with a lot of audience interaction.

“It’s a variety show. It’s for everybody,” Ms Spencer said.

“It’s pure entertainment that everybody will enjoy. It’s sure to impress audiences.”
