We've been producing original shows under the Variegated Productions banner for a few years. Here's some of them. Inquiries about bookings >> hello(at)variegatedproductions.com
Punch Up Club (2019)
An hour long satirical cabaret show based on the week’s news. Written the day before.
Featuring Perth’s best song and sketch writing minds (Frankie’s), alongside some big voices, the team will lock down 24 hours before the show and punch out some bangers that are so sharp it will catch your breath.
This is Punch Up Club.
Come spend a night at Frankie’s, the best dive bar in town with the best customers-you. Grab a table and make new friends, or catch up with old ones.Over the night follow the lives of the staff and regular punters at Frankie’s. Each episode promises anew episode, fresh songs and open arms. You’re going to love it here-it’s warm, friendly, and there’s an actual working bar for you. Really. Oh, and live music!
This show is a love letter to the places we end up at the end of the night, and the non-blood families we take there: friends, workmates and partners.
Featuring a bunch of Perth’s favourites such as Sam Longley, Libby Klysz, St John Cowcher and Tegan Mulvany, with very special musical and comedy guests.
Frankie’s: the bar where everyone knows your name. And probably your Mum’s and your housemate’s, too.
The whole Frankie’s team would also like to thank Whipper Snapper Distillery for helping us get this thing off the ground. Upshot Australian Whiskey, still the best thing on the menu at Frankie’s.
The Man and The Moon (2016-2018)
Lunacy or total eclipse of the heart? Either way it’s a hell of a love story.
When a Man realizes he’s living a life stuck in outer-middle suburbia, sometimes the best response is to head out and see where the evening tides take you.
From Variegated Productions comes a theatrical solo cabaret show starring St John Cowcher. Smoky jazz, lamenting lyrics, evocative storytelling and a Man falling in love with the wrong celestial body.
Soundtrack available here!
Ramshackle & Kitsch (2014-2018)
Ramshackle is an old school detective. Kitsch is new on the team – a wide-eyed hipster who is as equally excited about the job as being distracted by puppies wearing shiny collars.
The lovechild of Starsky & Hutch and The Mighty Boosh, Ramshackle & Kitsch is a manic comedy based on audience suggestions and the finest of buddy cop traditions.
These Guys (2014)
Which men have genuinely influenced your life?
Your dad? That random Spanish backpacker? Bon Jovi? Every woman has five men that shape their lives- family members, lovers, chance encounters and celebrity crushes.
Meet one impetuous woman and five of the men that have shaped her... and how she shaped them.
No two nights are the same as you pick the five men that will alter life’s course for our feisty heroine. Perhaps it is the missing puzzle pieces that define us....
A very human and funny show from Variegated Productions.
Created by Libby Klysz, St John Cowcher, Michelle Nussey and Ben Russell
