Thursday July 5th – Saturday July 7th  – Play Nice // Melbourne Cabaret Festival Fringe

The gloves are off in this stinging cabaret offering from chanteuse Ilana Charnelle. After years of biting her tongue, the claws are finally out as she tackles rejection, betrayal and even Jesus with her biting wit and smouldering charm. An hour of original songs accompanied by a three-piece band and lead by musical director Ned Dixon, let Ilana Charnelle teach you why some girls don’t like to play nice.

This event will coincide with the launch of the studio album of Play Nice, which is now out on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and more.

Grab your copy and come celebrate with us!
