Marney McQueen – Hair to the Throne

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 12 June 2015


The princess of plucking and preening is back with a comedy cabaret exposé, Hair To The Throne.

Treat yourself to an unmissable full body experience as Celebrity Bikini Waxer Rosa Waxoffski takes you on a prickly journey from her childhood in Leningrad, spills the dirt from the pages of her star studded celebrity appointment book, and showcases her hilarious campaign to be Australia’s very first entrant in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015.

AND by popular demand, a special guest appearance from Russia’s Biggest Pianist, Boris Longschlongadongski.

“McQueen’s voice is outstanding. As is her stage presence.” – Theatre People

“Marney McQueen is a true chameleon entertainer. She is also hilariously funny.” – Jacki Weaver

“A force to be reckoned with.” – The Age
