Queen Beaver in Beavers at the Butterfly

Book tickets

Entertaining queers for over 25 years!

A financial advisor, a university lecturer and an actor walk into a bar... pick up their instruments and start playing. This is Queen Beaver, a queer band of ladies ‘singing songs and telling jokes in a nightclub’ since 1996.

Beavers at the Butterfly is the trio’s new show, following such hits as Beavers Behaving Badly (Bar 303), Beaver Las Vegas (Melbourne Fringe) and Singalong with Queen Beaver – Everyone’s a Diva! (Darebin Music Fest). In Beavers at the Butterfly, Queen Beaver unleash a new repertoire of cabaret material as well as highlights from their 25 years in the business.

Michelle Brisbane (‘Boss Beaver’) is known for shredding guitar in bands The Houndlings, The Sharons, Nice Girls Don’t Spit and The Woo Band as well as running her own ethical financial advice company. Stayci Taylor (‘Dr Beaver’) is responsible for ukulele, silly banter and crimes against the tambourine, and is a screenwriting lecturer at RMIT. Lucy Schmidt (‘Baby Beaver’) brings the banging lead vocals following a career of over 30 professional stage shows and roles in film and television.

Entertaining crowds from Northcote to Nevada, this is a threesome you don’t want to miss - come let the beavers play!
