2020 was a joke, so come for a laugh and a drink with eight of Perth's most beloved performers (or so we'd like to think) as we sing our favourite musical theatre numbers. Heathers. Chicago. Rent. High School Musical. Dogfight - and more! In this self-indulgent cabaret, we'll share with you the dream roles of our past, present and future. We'll make you cry (if you have a heart), laugh (both with and at us), and applaud (please?). Open your ears and open your eyes because we've got an hour of Sh*t We Like To Sing.

With a roster of performers you maybe might recognise from your local newspaper, Sh*t We Like To Sing features Breanna Redhead, Charlie Darlington, Danielle McDonald, Dylan Dorotich, Grace Johnson, Joshua Towns, Max Conroy and Peter Ho.

We all have that broken instrument which is beyond salvageable... but we still cannot bear to throw it away. Don't fret, you can save it from a fate worse than landfill with The Recycle Instrument Project!

We'll bring the paints, the glue, even the glitter... just about everything that could infuse a new soul into your tired and battered guitar or violin. All you have to do is bring your old instrument.

Just don't bring your Stradivarius violins, though, please! We've got a luthier - someone who makes and repairs instruments - who could fix your Strad right up. And, if you don't have an instrument, no worries. We've got plenty of spare violin and viola bridges lying around for you to bedazzle instead.
