MY SECRET VALENTINE: Cabaret and Cocktail After-Party

Be our Valentine!  This is a special group Valentine's date for Dare Devil Singles only!  Our special private cabaret show will have you laughing, swooning, and ready for love!  Then enjoy some cocktails and canapes at the cocktail after- party. Come dressed for a romantic Valentines date and bring a little gift for our Secret Valentine game.

Venue:  Hares and Hyenas, Fitzroy

 Sophie deLightful, the wild child of the Melbourne cabaret scene, presents a kaleidoscopic line-up of talented performers in this Valentine-themed cabaret.  

Rebelliously challenging the worn-out, cliched image of the traditional cabaret starlet,  Sophie's natural wit, cooling demeanor, and unnerving cheek is a refreshing new style on the cabaret stage.   She is classy yet brash, heavenly yet devilish, and all the time brimming with sparkles and glitter.

Sophie deLightful first dipped her stilettoed toe into the burlesque scene six years ago in London where she competed and performed in a range of competitions and showcases, quickly attracting feature gigs at a variety of venues around the iconic city.  Back in Melbourne, Sophie has continued her career as a cabaret performer, producing and starring in various productions including: “Supa SnH Plus Liqour”, “Clause & Effect: A Christmas Obsession” , and Childhood Dreams & Fairytale Queens”  which went on to tour through Sydney and Canberra.  


Everyone must bring a little gift.  (Nothing that costs more than $10 and nothing cumbersome.... so don't, for example, bring a big awkward bunch of flowers.)

When you arrive, you will pop your name into three hats. 

After the cabaret, you will draw a name out of each hat.  (There are separate hats for men and women so men will pull out women's names and women will put out men's names)

During the cocktail party you must mingle and find the three people whose names you have drawn out of the hat.  

The first person you must hug, the second person you must kiss (on the cheek is ok), the third you give your Secret Valentine's gift to. 


Come dressed as you would dress for a Valentine's date. (Because this IS a group Valentine's date!)  So, gentlemen, this means wear a shirt, not a tshirt, and, most importantly, smell nice!Ladies, wear that little outfit that really compliments your figure and makes you feel know the one!   

A delicious array of canapes and finger foods will be provided by our friends at the Fitz Cafe/Damask. 

Hares and Hyenas offers a most impressive and creative cocktail menu as well as an excellent selection of beers, wine and spirits.
