4. If you’re fan of Cabaret
Musical Theatre Night 

Fringe festival-Sydney-block party-music-food-wine-family-art-2018-performances-live-dinner-comedy-kids-festival

If like us you love music and musical theater, then we recommend this show! The Fringe Festival is hosting a music event to showcase some of the underrated and underappreciated songs performed by leading composers from Broadway. The festival is bringing together some of Sydney’s most talented emerging performers for an amazing night. Join Little Triangle, whose main goal is to showcase theatrical productions that they feel aren’t performed as much as they should be. They aim to challenge their audience and to help grow the musical theater audience, particularly among the younger generation. It’s different, unique and represents everything that the fringe festival is all about.

Where: Seymour Centre Corner of City Road and Cleveland Street, Chippendale 

When:  20th – 22nd of September 7pm – 8:15pm 

Price: Adult: $27, Concession: $22

After one whole month of entertainment, there is no better way to end the festival than by going to the Fringe’s Last Supper Event. Going back to Kensington Street, The Fringe Festival invites us to celebrate all things fun, wild and crazy. On the 30th of September from 5pm, you can see fire performers, snake charmers and rain dancers! You’re encouraged to go wild and embrace your inner “bacchanal”. With Kensington Street’s 12 restaurants open, there will be an abundance of food. We recommend grabbing an Asian street food delight from Spice Alley.

But that’s not all!

For one night only, Olio, Eastside, Mekong and Bistro Gavroche will be providing an exclusive supper for those lucky enough to grab a ticket. Get in early as tickets are limited.
