Shows At The Melba
The Goblin Ball: Starlantis!
Welcome to Starlantis! On the 24th of November we celebrate a Cabaret Masquerade never before seen in Goblin Realms.
Come Fly With Glee
Come up, up and away with Melbourne’s favourite contemporary choir, Glee Plus as they take you on a musical journey around the world and then right back home.
A night at the fabulous Melba Spiegeltent filled with your favourite songs and some new musical gems along with a glass of wine (or two).
What more could you want?!
This is a Hey Boss Show
Following a critically-acclaimed national tour, renowned character actor, stand-up comedian and three time Barry Award nominee, Damian Callinan, returns to Melbourne with ‘Swing Man’, his show about partner dancing, solo dancing and unfulfilled life goals. The swan-song of the show that debuted at Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2016 will be staged at Collingwood’s Melba Speigeltent to co-incide with the Melbourne Lindy Exchange this November.
Appearing on stage with professional dancers Jeanne-Clare Storace and Genevieve Wallis Best, Callinan has created another one of his life-meets-art theatre shows (The Wine Bluffs, The Lost WW1 Diary, The Merger). The show combines Callinan’s natural ability to make anything funny and inclusive with his recent self-imposed bucket-list challenge to learn to swing dance.
