We LOVE bringing Sydney all the madness of the Bedlam Cabaret series. We hope to bring Bedlam back with a big bold new look, a gorgeous new venue, and a line up of local artists that we adore!

Stay tuned to our Facebook  page for the latest updates from the Rogues.

Did you catch Bedlam for Mardi Gras in 2018?

bed·lam {bedləm} noun “a scene of uproar and confusion”

The Rogues were back, bringing Bedlam to the Red Rattler for a rainbow-flavoured, fearlessly queer edition for the Sydney Gay Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival!


Showcasing the most exciting new and emerging Sydney performers alongside the city’s coolest established artists, this is the pre-parade shindig you know you wanted – and we turned up the heat, and the talent, to get us in the mood for the party.

Hosted by the one-and-only James Breko Brechney we created our own piece of Bedlam inside Sydney’s famous Red Rattler, exclusively for Mardi Gras.

Bedlam : Mardi Gras Edition was a madcap multi-genre queer-themed cabaret blending burlesque, music and song with cutting edge comedy and seriously sizzling performance art.

The Bedlam Cabaret aims to create a paid opportunity for new and emerging artists to share stage and space with established Sydney performers from across the arts spectrum. Here we entertain, hone our crafts, discover new connections, build networks and make a little magic for Bedlam audiences. In the past the we’ve hosted artists from opera, circus, burlesque, music, comedy, theatre and performance art – and we’re always open to more. If you’d like to be involved in the cabaret please contact us!
