Ellington Club presents 'A Saucy Little Secret'


From 31st July to 4th August at 6pm A Saucy Little Secret set to Scandalise Perth – One week only

Don’t miss this opportunity to see HMS PopUp Productions ‘A Saucy Little Secret’, a masterful modern theatre cabaret following the lives of five strong women whose music and attitudes influenced the development of modern music, queer lifestyle and racial tolerance. Famous not only for their music, but also for their progressive and alternative attitudes to sexuality, race issues and relationships, Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Gladys Bentley, Ethel Waters and Alberta Hunter, all broke into the music scene through the buffet flats and rent houses of Harlem, but rose to be successful and wealthy recording artists in their own right. Perth’s premier jazz, soul and blues musicians come together to share their untold stories. Kali Caramia, Libby Hammer, Odette Mercy, Natalie Gillespie and Harry Deluxe give five daring performances, weaving their way through stories both dangerous and decadent, often tragic and comic all at once. Spectacular Perth celebrity, Magnus Danger Magnus, holds court with the ladies as a most engaging, and slightly dangerous, Maitre D. Click here for tickets
