SHOW IS RATED: M15+

A MAGICAL EXPLOSION OF ART, SENSUALITY AND SOUL. An intimate, spiritual variety experience celebrating Queer excellence awaits you.

Repent for your sins, dress to kill, bring a spare pair of underwear, and kiss the flames of THE RAPTURE.

An intimate and unique variety experience is in store, featuring the finest Queer and gender-diverse performance artists with hotter-than-hell acts to celebrate life, body and sexuality. See the skin, feel the heat, and experience the rebirth of a lifetime, with the finest cabaret acts, including Pole Dance, Circus, Sideshow, Burlesque, Drag, and much more.

After debuting in August 2022, Mulubinba / Newcastle, NSW, THE RAPTURE has delivered Heaven on Earth to consecutive sellout audiences, and established a firm reputation of Queer excellence. Brought to you by an exquisite cast of potent, delicious creatures, and hosted by the bubblegum goth Goddess herself, Cleo Rapture. Get cosy for a heart stopping ride through Hell!

"THE RAPTURE is for the sinners and grinners. It feels like one of those intimate restaurants with regular menu updates, and you’re assured there will always be delightful options. The atmosphere is warm, and a little bit horny."
