Beauty and the Bastard: A Spoonful of Disney have arrived in Adelaide for the 2012 Fringe Festival.
After winning the Fringe Award for Excellence for its premiere season at the 2011 Sydney Fringe in September, this playful, fairytale reinvention of the music and myths of Disney, developed by Sydney musicians Maxine Kauter and James Edgar Francis, will play from the 29th of February till the 4th of March at Gluttony.
James and Maxine have been sharing their thoughts and charting their adventures in a blog series with us.
And now that they’re in town, they’ll be contributing their tour updates in during their Fringe season in between performing their show - and Cabaret Confessional is once again supercalifragilisticexcited to follow their jaunt in Adelaide!

Everybody relax: Beauty & the Bastard have arrived. We touched down in Adelaide yesterday morning, and quickly stumbled into the habits indicative of the hip, urbane representatives of Sydney culture that we are.
This was a moment that Maxine captured where I initially tried to
exchange my Sydney Dollars for Adelaide Pesos.
Here was a moment when we found an actual Pay Phone in the wild: rare, untamed and
unnecessary, like so many koalas.
And now we are hard at work practicing for our first show tonight at the Carry On Theatre in Gluttony (8 PM and tickets are $10-20).
It is coming together, and Maxine keeps saying that I’m a slave driver. I resent that title, though. After years of working in Human Trafficking, you would think I would be in a much more prestigious position than “Slave Driver”.
