Best of the Boardwalk


Nestled amidst the comedic heart of our city lives the iconic Lithuanian club in North Melbourne, which this year presents a number of must-see shows —After Dark Theatre’s Best of the Boardwalk is most certainly one. For one night only, this 50-minute performance brings to us a non-stop circus and variety show put on by Melbourne Fringe’s elite.

All artist in the show have performed in the Boardwalk Republic and have won a number of awards at fringe festivals across the globe. Best Performer awards, Best Show awards and Best Emerging Artist awards are just the tip of the iceberg.
