About this event

It is a cavalcade of movement like you have seen before.” ★★★★★ Around The Sound AU, 2020

As the sun sets on another night in Palma, the illustrious cast of The Underground prepares for another unforgettable night. New dancers have ignited turmoil within the cast, causing a fiery divide. Can you take the heat? 

Featuring live music, internationally acclaimed performers, and world-class production, this explosive work merges dance, drag, and fire performance in a tantalizing show unlike any other. 

After SELLING OUT in 2021, this new installment of the show takes over the State Theatre, featuring Cirque du Soleils' Regina Slay, an extended cast, and a new soundtrack.

“It’s hopefully earned its rightful place as a main stage fixture in future festivals.” ★★★★½ XPress Magazine, 2020

Presented by:

We are devastated to announce that due to injury, our Fire Breathing Drag Queen Regina Slay is unable to join us in The Underground this season. But don't sweat it Perth, we've got something else special instore for you that's guaranteed to keep the temperature at an all time HIGH. 

Flair Bartender, Vocalist and Dancer, Cardin Farnham, joins the cast as our smooth talking bartending MC - telling the secrets of The Underground from our live (fully operational) onstage bar. 

Joining us this season is championship winning Latin couple Ruby Gherbaz (Burn the Floor, Dancing with the Stars AU) and 2 time Australian Latin Champion Steven Greenwood.
