Gentlemen Prefer Blokes

Starring Courtney Act & Trevor Ashley

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Working Management

Spend a night with two mega-watt stars of Australian drag as they take on some of history’s greatest duos delivered with a signature side of sass like only they know how.

Screen sirens Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell had it all! Step inside a parallel universe of today where the girls are still glamorous belters with a penchant for diamonds, but with one not-so-little difference: these two little girls from little rock are two little boys from Darlinghurst.

In this devilishly-tantalising show, international star Courtney Act and acclaimed writer, musical director and performer Trevor Ashley once again team up for a wild evening of songs, sketches, camp video sequences and their unique brand of stand-up.

This event is part of MELT: A Celebration of Queer Arts and Culture 2016.


With this cast, and the amazing Phil Scott at the pen, you’re in for a great night.


Trevor Ashley has taken drag out of gay bars and onto the biggest stages in the land.


As soon as Courtney Act took the stage, it was instantly clear why her fans cannot get enough of her.


Maximum gags per minute. We grinned, we gasped, we giggled... it was great fun!
