RACHEL RAI AND DAVID SALTER WILL BRING THEIR RIOTOUS SELF-DEPRICATING HUMOUR TOGETHER AT LAST FOR THE ADELAIDE COMEDY CABARET DOUBLE BILL: MAKE BELIEVE & MANXIOUS AT THE HOLDEN STREET THEATRES, 1st-3rd DECEMBER 2016.
Make Believe: Children’s Songs for Grown Ups
Like a lovechild of Noni Hazlehurst and your drunken uncle, David Salter sings and slurs his way through a songbook of children’s classics in this adult’s only cabaret.
Collected over the years of school shows, kids’ parties, and substantial experience as a child himself, the silly naughty and bittersweet memories in ‘Make Believe’ will touch you in all the right places.
Written and performed by David Salter

After a hugely successful run at Melbourne’s Cabaret Festival, Rachel Rai is returning to Adelaide to perform her engaging comedy cabaret ‘manxious’.
Extremely relatable, self-deprecating and hilarious- armed with a snazzy four-piece. Rai intersperses a diverse number of songs throughout the evening as she goes through the excruciating process of waiting for a response to her perfectly created text. These numbers have been reimagined in ways that give them new life and celebrate Rai’s versatility as a singer. Written by Rachel Rai & Michael Nicholson with music arrangements by Ian Andrew and Musical Direction by Aaron Nash.
‘Despite its worrisome theme, it’s a fun show that not only showcases Rai’s impressive ability toperform, but also gives the audience plenty of laughs’.
