THE Won­der­land Spiegel­tent will re­turn to Port Dou­glas Car­ni­vale in 2018 with an­other en­thralling line-up of live en­ter­tain­ment for all ages.

On the heels of sold out shows that de­lighted au­di­ences at Car­ni­vale 2016 and 2017, the Speigel­tent will again be the per­for­mance hub at Dick­son In­let with ex­tended shows from May 18-27. (Car­ni­vale runs over May 25-27).

“De­liv­er­ing high cal­i­bre en­ter­tain­ment to lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike con­tin­ues to be our mis­sion,” said Knock Out Events’ Melissa Head. “The last two years at Car­ni­vale de­liv­ered num­bers beyond our ex­pec­ta­tions and we were elated with our guest re­sponse..”

En­ter­tain­ment for 2018 in­cludes:

Cir­cus Won­der­land: Step right up to the spec­ta­cle, span­gle and in­trigue of an old time trav­el­ling cir­cus.

Fea­tur­ing a world class cast of Aus­tralian and In­ter­na­tional su­per­stars in­clud­ing the Strong­man, the Con­tor­tion­ist, the Gypsy and a troupe of agile Ac­ro­bats who come to life for a hi­lar­i­ous and thrilling show un­der the big top for the fam­ily. (24-27 May)

Rouge: A deca­dent blend of sen­sa­tional ac­ro­bat­ics, oper­atic cabaret and tongue-incheeky bur­lesque. A non­stop cel­e­bra­tion of the as­ton­ish­ing, the sur­pris­ing and the down right sexy, Rouge is an adult cir­cus cabaret. (May 18-27). (Con­tains course lan­guage, adult themes and nu­dity).

Ak­mal Saleh: One of the most suc­cess­ful, acomm­plished and pop­u­lar Aus­tralian comics, Ak­mal Salah will be per­form­ing his one man standup com­edy show on Satur­day, May 26. Orig­i­nally from Eygpt, his her­itage steers his com­edy to is­sues of re­li­gion, hon­esty and side-split­ting ob­ser­va­tions of modern life.
