Grab your gals, grab your guys and get yourself to The Best of Ladies Night for a fun-filled night out at the Fringe. Our favourite time of year is here and there’s so much to soak up, plus we love hearing the stories behind some incredible productions.

In a kick-ass nod to femininity, Australian circus performer Hannah Cryle created this show that celebrates women and people of marginalised genders — and it’s been a hit since kicking off last year! “It’s everything that encompasses femininity for a bunch of different people,” says Hannah, who has performed nationally and internationally since 2011.

The Best of Ladies Night promises to wow, with each night featuring a series of different performers, including cabaret, circus, magicians, the ultra-bubbly Hannah as MC and more!

“I’ve had a blast doing a comedy hula hoop routine as a circus performer for many years, but after I had my baby girl, I found there was very little support or even consideration to make it possible or easier for women to go back to performing. Some of the strongest performers I’ve ever worked with or been inspired by are females and I realised that things needed to change!” Hannah says.

Hannah has pulled together a jaw-dropping line-up, which will leave you buzzing from the phenomenal talent of these variety circuit performers. “I’m so excited that this show includes incredible performers and many of them also happen to be mums. Our industry includes a lot of late night and evening work and there’s often not a lot of consideration of the fact that these women have small people who rely on them. We’re giving artists complete creative control over their acts and also providing some support (including free backstage childcare) to make it easy for the absolute best performers on the circuit to say yes when we ask them to be in our show.”

In partnership with Gluttony, Hannah and her team have helped to produce The Lark, the venue that exclusively programs artists who have potentially been left out of covid support schemes or who might face different financial pressures. “We’re passionate about helping to remove some of the barriers for such talented performers to entertain and we’re proud to play a part in bringing that to Adelaide,” Hannah says.
