Wickedly funny, world-class cabaret

From the company that brought Babushka Book Club to audiences last year, Babushka are back this March touring the Sunshine Coast with their latest production Happily Ever After.

In this new production, three unlikely princesses tell a very grown-up bedtime story, turning best loved children’s stories inside-out for audiences in Maleny, Pomona, Coolum and Eudlo.

Featuring comedy and cabaret with the music of Kurt Weill, Rihanna, the Violent Femmes and Tom Waits, Babushka is ready to give Rapunzel a sharp new haircut, put Goldilocks in charge of the three bears and give a whole new meaning to Puss in Boots!

Artist and founder Alicia Cush explains. “We are thrilled to bring our wickedly funny cabaret to Sunshine Coast audiences. It’s a perfect excuse to get your friends together for a ladies night out, or bring a date, to have a good laugh and experience some world-class music.”

Brisbane-based Babushka are a Matilda Award-winning cabaret group. With slick vocals, quirky comedy and unapologetic sass, they take on everything from Mozart to Guns’n’Roses, with unique arrangements, musical sketches and mashups.

Babushka artists, Judy Hainsworth, Laura Coutts and Alicia Cush, have toured extensively throughout Queensland with previous shows, Babushka Book Club, Doll and I Can Keep A Secret, to sell-out houses and critical acclaim.

Babushka’s work has been described as “...lambasted the audience with raunchy wit, sly humour, sexy asides, and fabulous vocals…” - Absolute Theatre and “Complete with captivating harmonies and group synchronicity, the cabaret collective was tight, professional and extremely enthralling.” – Scenestr.

Happily Ever After is strictly for adults with course-language and adult themes.

The Happily Ever After Sunshine Coast tour is presented by local performing arts company Red Chair with the support of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. Visit:
