Here are 5 fantastic shows worth checking out!

Queensland Cabaret Festival, Just Me Starring Mercedes De Luca-Jones

Just Me Starring Mercedes De Luca-Jones is a laugh-out-loud cabaret comedy in which singer/comedian Lisa LaCelle brings her own and very ‘cringe worthy’ experiences to life through her alter-ego. The Old Museum, June 15.

Dynamic Duo, Brian Cavanagh and Alison St Ledger, will perform their hilarious Dodgy Duets Done Decently - you be the judge. The Old Museum, June 15

[email protected] celebrates the 50th anniversary of the iconic music festival. Join Ingrid James and Toni Zaffa together with Grammy-award winning trumpeter, Paul Armstrong, and a stellar 7-piece band for a sumptuous musical journey through the 60’s and 70’s with fresh renditions of Woodstock songs. The Old Museum, June 16

Queensland Cabaret Festival, Simply Sam

If you like the music of UK crooner Sam Smith, you're going to love Simply Sam: The Lonely Hour Tribute Show starring Simon Chamberlain. Join Simon for an intimate journey focusing on the ups and downs of relationships as told through the music of Sam Smith. The Old Museum, June 20.  

Queensland Cabaret Festival, Scarred For Life

When Josh Belperio survived flying over the handlebars of his push bike, rupturing his spleen and nearly bleeding to death, he did the only rational thing an artist would do – he wrote a show about it. Don't miss his life-changing story, Scarred For Life, wrapped up in song and comedy. The Old Museum, June 23
