What’s On At The Edith This Week

Swing by The Edith in Yagan Square this week for some top shelf programming that will not disappoint!

A unique partnership between FRINGE WORLD and Edith Cowan University (ECU) saw the university become the first in the world to acquire its own Spiegeltent in 2016.

During the year, Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) students use The Edith to rehearse and perform, then during the summer it becomes one of the Festival’s most popular venues with its amazing line-up of shows.

Check out these shows at The Edith this week!

Music & Musicals

Witness the pitch-perfect battle of the century as two opposing teams Retrovision and Harmonix blow the roof off with their incredible voices and aca-amazing harmonies in Acapocalypse!

For a starry change of pace, check out One Sky Many Stories and take a spellbinding journey to the far reaches of the galaxy with one of Australia’s most prolific indigenous songwriters Warren H Williams and members of the acclaimed Griffyn Ensemble.

You might want to see The Baden Street Singers – Whose Note Is It Anyway? a couple of times because no two shows are the same! The crowd takes control of the tempo, chooses the genre, and even writes their own song.


You may have seen YUMMY before, but not like this! The legendary innovative cabaret is back with YUMMY Deluxe featuring a fabulous new ensemble of acts and some electric new cast members. Take in breath-taking drag, music, circus, and burlesque!

The Edith has got night owls covered with the hilarious, provocative, dark and filthy late-night cabaret club in Perth – Little Death Lates. Join kabarett superstar Bernie Dieter and an ever-changing line up of drag, burlesque and comedy.

Strap in for some epic stunts and impossible illusions with Kevin Quantum: Vanishing Point! Scientist/magician Quantum will manipulate your perspective of the universe as he puts his life on the line with the most dangerous sci-fi inspired stunt he’s ever attempted.
