Under the tyrannical influence of Queen Cannibali’s voodoo spell the enchanting Skull Island Orchestra will whisk you away to a tropical island via an intoxicating musical mix of exotica, lounge and mambo.
A night of dangerous cabaret, heroic theatrical feats, exotic flavours, exploding volcanos and tribal grooves, Queen Cannibali and the Skull Island Orchestra will kidnap your body and your mind, before finally allowing you to exorcise yourself from the Queen’s clutches with a steamy dance set.
You will celebrate the Opening Night Party of the 2015 Castlemaine State Festival — that’s an order straight from Queen Cannibali!
(Performance repeated on Friday 20 March).
Get your tiki on and dress to impress so the Queen makes you a favourite.
