Brisbane Powerhouse has announced the lineup of it’s end-of-year carnival of surprise and delight, Wonderland, running from November 24 to December 11 with an exciting line-up of circus, burlesque, cabaret and comedy.

The program of 31 shows over 14 days invites Brisbane audiences to experience the cheekier side of the performing arts at the New Farm venue. Brisbane Powerhouse’s Artistic Director Kris Stewart wants Brisbane audiences to embrace this year’s festival as an end of year carnival where they can let their hair down and have fun.

“Audiences are spoilt for choice this year. Definitely not to be missed will be the hilarious Sammy J and Randy, the always knowledgeable Dr Karl, The Chaser’s Australia, The Voice Grand Finalist Ellen Reed, local superstar Luke Kennedy with world champion beatbox Joel Turner, and songstress Emma Dean,” he said.

“We’re also excited to present the critically-acclaimed theatrical journey Graeme of Thrones, which sold out in London’s West End and other venues around Australia. Created by a team of some of the UK’s top comedy writers, Graeme of Thrones is an original and un-authorised parody on the international phenomenon that is Game of Thrones.”
