THE PRINCESS RETURNS 2

A KARAOKE CABARET, WHERE YOU SING WHEN TOLD TO
Thu 4 Aug 2022 7:30 pm
Theatre Royal Studio Theatre

In a Studio Theatre cabaret show, Greg Leong reprises his role as the flamboyant Princess Feng Yee hosts an evening of unexpected insights into what is happening right now in Australia from a different cultural perspective.

Her eclectic repertoire is peppered with social and political comments, from traditional Aussie tunes to being a woman working in Canberra to torch songs by lovelorn heroines of popular song and opera.

Arriving in Tasmania in 1982, Feng Yee has dedicated her life to helping others like herself to become real Australians. She invented Karaoke-in-Education, introducing Australian culture to Chinese migrants. In the process, she finds out just how Australian Australians are.

40 years on, at 75, Feng Yee remains an über glamorous Chinese Australian. She lets you know what it’s like to be from another culture spending half a lifetime fitting in.

Book a table and add a wine and cheese package for two people to enjoy during the show.
