Yana Alana descends on Williamstown

Award-winning cabaret performer Yana Alana is coming to Williamstown to perform her latest show, Yana Alana Covered.

Yana Alana is the alter ego of Melburnian Sarah Ward, who received rave reviews for her 2014 show Between The Cracks, for which she also won a Helpmann Award for best cabaret performer.

She has also won 10 Green Room awards, which acknowledge achievements in performing arts in Australia.

Performing with her all female band, the Paranas, Yana Alana will perform original arrangements and interpretations of classic and kooky pop, rock and soul songs, showcasing her unique risque and memorable performance style.

The show will include songs made famous by Nina Simone, Tom Waits, Shirley Bassey, Laurie Anderson, Scout Niblet, Joy Division and Johnny Young among others.

Described as a camp, bouffant, drag diva, Yana Alana is infamous for her bold performances. Williamstown Mechanics Institute will host her only show in Hobsons Bay on April 27 from 7.30pm.

Tickets: $35 adults/$25 concession and groups of 10-plus. Recommended for people aged 15 and over. Bookings: hobsonsbaytickets.com.au
