YUMMY is a cabaret made from a powerhouse team of drag, circus, dance, and music performers, and has been serving smash-hit events in numerous arts festivals across three continents. Based in Melbourne, and directed by James Welsby (BRIEFS, Finucane and Smith), and featuring performers Karen From Finance, Tanzer, James Andrews, Beni Lola, Hannie Helsden, Benjamin Hancock, Zelia Rose, Yana Alana, Valerie Hex and surprise special guests, YUMMY has become something of a phenomenon that looks set to leave it’s mark on Australia’s cabaret history.

“This incredible cast of performers have been brought together to create a show that defies genre, and really has to be seen to be fully appreciated.”

YUMMY offers drag cabaret that grew out of the alternative drag and neo-burlesque scenes in inner Melbourne. The show provides equal opportunities for women in drag spaces. We simultaneously reference queer performance history and build on it.
