Velvet Rose is the proprietor of The Velvet Lounge, an underground club operating in an age of prohibition. She invites guests to the club for fun and excitement where they are allowed to drink, unmask and misbehave, but in return they must perform for her. If she isn't suitably entertained, she gets rid of them. A dark comedy about boredom, murder and revenge.
The Velvet Lounge features the Carole Williams as Velvet Rose. She is bored,
ruthless and sardonic. To entertain her, her guests have to be captivating. Each performance features special guest artists invited from around Brisbane, to strut their stuff and take their chances on Velvet's stage. From artistic pole dancers to drag performers, operatic rock to contemporary dancers, this 'show within a show', brings a variety of exciting acts, strung together with clever story telling and a plot that
revolves around stories of love, murder and revenge.
In a show: don’t tell experience, the audience is invited to take a seat in the Velvet Lounge and experience close up the mystery, tension and dark humour of this quirky cabaret, featuring songs including: Keep Young and Beautiful, We All Go Together, The Soldier's Wife, and Isolation.
The Velvet Lounge features Williams with four special guest performers and a live four piece band. Full technical requirements of this cabaret, availability for inclusion in your program and high quality promotional material are available on request.
