We’re that person at a party everyone is attracted to.
They tell a good story, they’re exciting to be around, they express themselves boldly and live their lives fully.
Likewise, our entertainers, trucks, and out-there shows consistently draw a crowd and get people talking long after home time. And it’s not just the showmanship that sets us apart; it’s the people behind the scenes who get their hands (and occasionally minds) dirty turning mad ideas into bespoke experiences.
Our team of entertainers, stage managers, lighting and sound technicians, videographers, photographers, music directors, costume designers, event management and social media gurus support Sheree and Garrath in delivering one-of-a-kind, all-round awesome events across Victoria.
From concepts to costumes, the team is involved in every inch of our events and loving every minute of it.

The stage-to-truck concept was cooked up by Sheree Matthews and her partner, Garrath Holt, one night at Red Bennies (an iconic club that Garrath happened to own). The two plotted an entertainment shake-up that would challenge the confines of venues and bring the circus sideshow to the forefront of Victorian events in a way that hadn’t been done before. With a burlesque backdrop and a Creole Ti Holt cocktail in hand, the pair decided that the circus would indeed come back to town. On the back of a vintage dodge.
