The biggest artistic festival at Monash is back on campus, with dynamic performances, hilarious comedy, soulful music, rocking bands, burlesque, drag, circus, and more! Along with our usual jam-packed Variety Nights, our much-loved specialty nights Music Night and Queer Night return in 2022, with the addition of a special Intercultural Celebration Night and a dedicated sensory friendly night. The seventh year of the Monash Uni Student Theatre Cabaret Festival continues to offer a brilliant opportunity for performers from diverse backgrounds to entertain, entice and showcase their talents across a curated two-week season. It’s a place where both newbies and seasoned performers share a stage to create a fun, inclusive and lively festival. Bring on your excitement, put on your fun pants, hype up and get ready to boogie!
