About the performers

Guy Alias

Guy Alias brings you everything your heart desires and the fun time it requires! Guy is your drag man about the town and beyond, bringing acts ranging from fabulously fun to downright silly. Hailing from the Canberra scene, he's the producer of the monthly Drag Cabaret and regularly brings his brand of glam to clubs, events and festivals. From Sydney to Melbourne, central coast to rural NSW, Mardi Gras to rainbow story times, he adores bringing suave and glittering times. So dress up and get ready for fun with the dapper nonsense that is Guy Alias.

Dolli with an i

A person with long red hair and wearing eye and lip makeup. They are wearing a black t-shirt and have a tattoo running up one arm.

Introducing Canberra’s sweetheart! Dolli with an i is a colourful glam songstress with two left feet. Although she’s both sharp with a makeup brush and blunt with a read, she always embodies grace and kindness. This queen shows up only to out perform herself and bring you variety every time she takes centre stage. Dolli has been popping in and out of the Capital’s drag scene for 4 years, consistently serving fierce looks, comedy and live vocals ranging from show tunes to country bangers. Dolli with an i is making a name for herself amongst her audiences and wants to bring you along for the vivacious adventure.
