AfterDark Theatre Proudly Presents:


 An opulent Adults Only evening, direct from the French Quarter of New Orleans.

The ever elusive Circus Society invite audiences to their exclusive and flamboyant parade. Featuring highly skilled international Cirque artists, the illustrious Melba Spiegeltent in Collingwood plays host to this unique event. 

Influenced by the city of New Orleans and its best party on earth, the Mardi Gras, in the past these infamous festivities were hosted by secret societies competing to uphold the most lavish party in their quarter. Blending Cajun party culture, French exuberance, Creole Voodoo, Masquerade, and breathtaking acrobatics, Society also serves up audiences an extroverted lighting design and unique styled sound track of live music and original tracks. Nothing is off limits in this indulgent Circus Cabaret.

Running since 2007, AfterDark Theatre has built a solid reputation as a high end design and production company, offering Australian Circus lovers a veritable feast of superior quality shows and events. Previous award-winning productions include Pants Down Circus, Sediment, BARBAROI, Element of Consequence, and The Boardwalk Republic; the original Southside hub during Melbourne Fringe.

Continuing with that trend, AfterDark Theatre now proudly presents Society, a high octane tribute to the Bourbon Street Circus and the wild nightlife of the French Quarter.

Laissez le bon temps rouler!
