It is time for the last hurrah this Fringe season. The epic month of shows, talent, live music and overall good vibes is sadly coming to an end this weekend! Yep, Adelaide is once again going to go into a state of hibernation!
There are still three nights left to witness some of the more independent talent of the year and here are some shows that you should check out to end your Fringe experience with a bang!
Show Name: Pamela’s Palace
Venue: The A Club (main room), 109-111 Waymouth Street, Adelaide 5000
Dates: 1st – 16th March @7:30pm
All the way from the UK, an all-female crew with big hair and lots and lots of glitter will have you entertained for the funniest 75 minutes of your life.
Pamela is the #bosswoman of a buzzing beauty salon and her and her girls are set to give you a night full of jaw dropping dance routines to absolutely mad original bangers.
In a bid to tackle feminine insecurities, shameless gossip and of course all those hair disasters, Pamela’s Palace puts on a brilliant interactive comedy cabaret in the intimate yet loud setting of a beauty salon.
WARNING: audience members are chosen at random to interact with the performers to do some crazy s**t, but it makes it that much funnier to watch!
“The evening is a riot as three talented performers pout and strut their way through some dazzling choreography” ★★★★★ BroadwayBaby

Show Name: 30,000 Notes
Venue: nthspace Adelaide, 31-33 North St, Adelaide
Dates: 19th Feb – 16th March @9:00pm
If you’re looking for something particularly different to see this weekend then 30,000 Notes is screaming out your name!
Adelaide man, Josh Belperio, has around 4,500 notes on his iPhone, nearly 4,000 voice memos, and a number of original compositions comprised with over 100,000 musical notes. Whoa!
30,000 Notes is a one-man play, classical music concert and visual art exhibition all mixed into one spectacular show.
He takes you through the weird and meaningful moments that he’s jotted down throughout the years and from that he creates a story of finding love, of discovering who we can love, and how we can continue to remember those who are no longer here.
As well as looking at light-hearted topics, it’s also a poignant performance recounting how he dealt with his Nonna’s death from Motor Neurone Disease, as well as his internal battle of coming out.
He makes the show as engaging and as captivating as possible, having the room covered in his very own diary entries, musical scores and shopping lists. He also uses a projector to display colours timed to music and his Nonna’s home movies, to show how he perceives music and the world.
And to make it even better, a choir of 16 singers perform at various moments accompanied by a string quartet.
This is an intimate, personal and unique experience that will make you feel all sorts of emotions.

Show Name: Breaking the Magician’s Code with Kane and Abel
Venue: Noel Lothian Hall, Adelaide Botanic Garden
Dates: 5th – 17th March @9:15pm
You might think you’re seeing double after having a few drinks at the Garden before seeing a show. But for once your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you because Britain’s ‘bad boys of magic’ are back.
Twin tricksters, Kane and Abel, will provide a night full of impressive magic, surprises and laughs.
Going against the traditional rules in the Magician’s Code of Conduct passed down by their grandfather, the two dare-devil brothers show how great it feels to be BAD!
Being the only twin brother magic duo in the world and taking over the family magic business at the mere age of 15, they provide a show that is both professional and youthful.
