SINGER and gender illusionist Trevor Ashley will be the headlining act this weekend Christmas version of the Cheeky Cabaret in Brunswick Head.

The Sydney drag queen, famous for possession a powerful voice and a personality to match, was confirmed yesterday for the monthly cabaret show line up.

The confirmation of Trevor Ashley as the main entertainer for the Christmas show resonates with the controversial appointment of another drag queen, Art Simone, as the main entertainment during the holidays at Chapel Street in Melbourne.

In both cases, Santa has been ditched from the Christmas celebrations for gender illusionists.

Trevor Ashley is one of Australia's most sought-after and successful drag queens and musical theatre performers.

Ashley has been part of the cast of musical theatre productions of Les Miserables, Hairspray and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert .

Ashley has also toured a number of successful solo comedy musical shows, such as Fat Swan, Little Orphan TrAshley, Diamonds Are For Trevor, I'm Every Woman and Liza (on an E).

Trevor Ashley also recently directed Heathers: The Musical to sold out audiences at the Sydney Opera House.

At the Brunswick Picture House, 30 Fingal St, Brunswick Heads, this Friday and Saturday at 7pm. For details and bookings visit
