Gracing Launceston tonight is the magnificent Le Gateau Chocolat who is bringing his stunning solo performance I ♥ Chocolat to the Earl Arts Centre for one night only!

We love him and you will too.
A new ensemble of three friends and two lovers have come together to create a jazz journey of rarely-performed songs that are close to your heart.

Don’t miss Colin Lane, the much loved ‘Lano’ from the comedy duo Lano & Woodley. Colin’s going to do some showing off again, with a microphone and a piano. It’s funny. He’s ready to make you laugh until you cry at the Earl Arts Centre from tomorrow night.
On Saturday night, join Yana Alana feather ruffler, rabble rouser and cabaret provocateur, for a bent night of blues, burlesque and blame at the Festival Club at the Earl. Winner of the 2014 Helpmann Award for Best Cabaret Between the Cracks is cabaret at its very best.
Kaput, features the larger-than-life buffoonery of Tom Flanagan in two brilliant family shows this weekend that are full of slapstick, acrobatics and total silliness.

After a sell-out performance and thunderous applause at Hobart’s Spiegeltent, it’s your turn Launceston to experience Tasmania’s amazing Queen of Cabaret on Sunday night! In this musical tour de force, Claire Dawson, West End regular and star of the hit show Blitz!, plays instruments and sings up a storm of old and new songs as her most popular character, the chronically conflicted SiSi.
