A night of singing, dancing and memorable performances
Coming to a close this weekend, the Short and Sweet Festival has left some of the best til last with a fabulous line up of cabaret artists at the Visy Theatre in The Brisbane Powerhouse. You can book a double bill for both Friday and Saturday sessions, you can see more than one show on a shoestring.

Some of the fantastic acts this weekend include Belinda Raisin with excerpts from her sell-out show Confessions of a Control Freak which has shown at the Judith Wright Centre and other various regional venues across Queensland this year. The show centres around the endearing character of Frances who embraces the control freak within herself and shares the secrets of success.

You can also catch Cienda McNamara with an excerpt and encore of her hit show, Hardly a Portrait of a Lady about a dream of becoming a star, battling the 'Frizzy' and what it's like to be a second-choice red head in show business.
