Another Wednesday night, another night of exploring the unexpected further reaches of Canberra’s performing arts community. Smith’s Varietal is open to all comers. There’s no restrictions on genre, style, vulgarity, art form. We will accept virtually anything and anyone. Dance, origami, balancing acts, acrobats, sexual fantasists, impressionists, expressionists, depressionists, nappy boy wrestling, muscle man flexing, magicians, comedians, bonsai demonstrations, cheer girl/boys, burlesque.... Anything interesting, unusual, entertaining, humorous etc. etc. but not illegal and not degrading to the human spirit.

People interested in being part of this or future shows should contact Nigel McRae on 0401 084 773 or smithsalternative@gmail.com.
