About The Event
3 courses from our a la carte menu and a fouty-minute set
Defrosted from their deep “blue xmas balls” hibernation, these “over the hill-arious” performers of many Christmases past are dressing up your tinsel trees with their merry nightcap madness at Claires’ Kitchen with a deliciously gift wrapped dinner for one night only.
WE wish to sleigh you!
Hugh Monroe and Sigourney
Daring drag chanteuse Sigourney diva-states wherever she drains to traverse. Paid only in drinks and make-up, Siggy’s keyboard abilities have taken her to call centres across the globe where she has been lucky enough to also accompany many an odd singer with her trusty plug in rhythm Casio.
Sigourney met Ms Monroe in what they thought was a darkened steam room on a frisky night only to realize that it was The Albury Hotel beer barrel delivery cellar and have performed together ever since. Starring together in Clap (Formally Handjob) the movie back in 1980’s they shot straight to oblivion and now enjoy You Tube bans.
A man of many hats Hugh has created entertainment in every facet.
Performing professionally for almost 50 years, highlights include lead roles in:
Applause, Hello Dolly, Pageant, Into The Woods, Sweeney Todd, Peter Pan, Paddington Bear, La Cage Aux Follies and his own international casino and touring theatre cabaret shows.
Hugh is fondly remembered for “Simon Townsends’ Wonderworld,” and for being the founder of Expo Oz, Captain Starlight and the “Outrageous Hugh Monroe” who had a variety show on TVS.
A concert pianist, Stuart celebrates 50 years of accompanying and performing in a diverse manner across the spectrum of live entertainment.
His long term cabaret accompaniment include a cavalcade of celebrities and a multitude of major community events.
Also known for Lip sync style comedy performance with many of the Sydney original girl groups Stuart in his character “Sigourney” graced several renowned Oxford Street venues back in the golden days.
