1. The Voice Behind the Stars
No doubt you have heard her voice in more than fifty Hollywood films, but you might not have known who Marni Nixon was. Eliza Jackson plays Nixon, the most prolific ghost singer of all time.
She was the singing voice for superstars Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Wood, Marilyn Monroe and more! Featuring songs from West Side Story, My Fair Lady, The King & I, this show will take you way back with golden oldies.
2. Christina Bianco: Me, Myself and Everyone Else
Play a round of diva bingo with Christina Bianco, who found international recognition when her uncanny impersonations of the most iconic voices in pop culture went viral, racking up over 24 million views.
In Me, Myself and Everyone Else, the Broadway and West End star celebrates the voices that made her famous, from Barbra Streisand to Britney Spears.
3. A Disney Tribute: Once Upon a Teaser
See all your favourite Disney characters from Princess Belle to The Queen of Hearts and everyone in between in a new light with this cheeky cabaret tribute featuring award winning burlesque dancers.
Go on a magic carpet ride through a whole new world of naughty parodies that we think even Walt Disney himself would get a kick out of.
4. Hilary Duff Film Re-enactment Festival
Hilary Duff made those awkward tween years bearable with her cinematic classics The Lizzie McGuire Movie, A Cinderella Story and Cadet Kelly. Now we can see them adapted for the stage in this one woman show!
And this is FRINGE WORLD, so there is definitely going to be some cheeky tweaks to these classic stories. Get in on the action with (consensual) audience interaction and drill team choreography!
