Carlotta Promises a Night to Remember

Carlotta Promises a Night to Remember

Who: Carlotta
Where: Newcastle Panthers
When: Saturday September 9, 2000

OUTRAGEOUS drag queen CARLOTTA will appear in her DIVA OF DRAG show this Saturday night at the Newcastle Workers Club.

The one-woman show features CARLOTTA in brilliant costumes designed by some of the leading Australian fashion houses.

The show is broken into two 50-minute segments which include some slick video inserts, as well as the stories to make your toes curl and the quick one-liners for which CARLOTTA is famous.

Originally a teenage hairdresser from Balmain, Sydney, CARLOTTA'S life was spun on its head when local entrepreneurs Sammy Lee and Lee Gordon set up auditions for a show with boys impersonating girls.

The revolutionary concept threw CARLOTTA into a new life that led to her sex operation - the first publicly recognised in Australia.

CARLOTTA'S current popularity stems from her recent success on the Channel Ten show Beauty and the Beast.

CARLOTTA'S appearances on the show have prompted a multi-national company to approach her about creating a stage play on her life.

She has already featured in shows across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, The United States and Europe.

CARLOTTA'S autobiography He Did It Her Way was a huge success and is now on its fifth print run.

One Woman Show is running on September 9 at Newcastle Workers Club.

Tickets are on sale now from the club, or by phonecharge on 4929-7555.
