About Show Queen

SHOW QUEEN is Sydney’s favourite cabaret variety night, run regularly at Ginger's @ The Oxford Hotel.

Hosted by Australia’s Queen of Cabaret Trevor Ashley, each time we feature a handpicked lineup of Australia's best and brightest musical stars and cabaret performers - direct from current and upcoming musicals in Sydney and around the country.

We’re thrilled to have had our Show Queen friends at the sold out special event at the Sydney Opera House in December 2018.

Our Facebook and Instagram pages will keep you all across developing news and shows.

We were so thrilled to feature a cabaret performance by one of Australia's very best - Michael Griffiths - who served us a bevy of hits from Madonna to Kylie to Cole Porter and Peter Allen. Kate Maree Hoolihan, Loren Hunter and Ryan Gonzalez were all incredible - and Margi De Ferranti made a special duet performances. April 29 2018.


show queen - 19 november

It just so happened that our Show Queen cast were either ex-Les Mis or current-Beautiful The Musical - which set the stage for an outstanding night. Trevor gave us us what we needed with some Liza, Naomi Price did what she does best with some Adele and a divine version of Goodye Yellow Brick Road, Sarah Murr took us down the rabbit hole with her during her Mad Hatter number, Cameron MacDonald's acoustic set had us thinking Justin Timberlake was in the house - and Robert McDougall's Man of La Mancha Medley had all the feels.

The Sydney Arts Guide said the night was 'A Fuckin Hoot' in their review of Show Queen. True enough, this month we certainly turned up the heat. We were standing room only, the windows were opened and the sounds of oxford street floated in throughout the night.

The return of Show Queen after a brief (4 year) hiatus was a brilliant night. We celebrated 10 years since the first Show Queen in 2007! The vibe was electric, Trevor was hilarious and each performer was having a ball - the audience certainly got their monies worth.

Judith Greenaway review: 23/10/17


Tempted. Very tempted. Tempted not to tell anything about last night’s show. I want to keep it all to myself. But since we’re friends, and if you promise not to spread it around, I might tell you about a really fantastic Sydney cabaret event. It’s called SHOWQUEEN and with the sure hands of Chris Archer and the irrepressible Trevor Ashley beneath it, you just know its reliably top notch. And it’s on every month in Oxford St at Ginger’s: a great little intimate venue with terrific food.

it's show time, folks

"It's felt great being back," said Trevor Ashley, musical theatre star, director, writer, cabaret artist and impresario. "Lots of people were doing big belt numbers, I had the best time." Ten years after hosting the original Show Queen cabaret at Ginger's at The Oxford Hotel in Darlinghurst, Ashley has returned to the same space to reboot the show with a mix of seasoned performers and emerging talent from the local musical theatre world.
