StarCity Hotel and Casino

Gala Dinner

StarCity Hotel and Casino Sydney

Show brief
A glamorous ‘Las Vegas' style cabaret and an unforgettable show for 300 international VIP guests and partners.

The finer details
The glitzy Las Vegas theme was accented with pink and gold Tivoli stairs leading to a stage featuring a deco neon backdrop and flanked by star curtains and two spectacular white (fully operational) fountains. Feathers, flowers and diamantes cascaded from tall table centrepieces.

The execution
The set was designed to showcase the 20+ performers including burlesque dancers and singer Melinda Jackson. Remote stages wrapped around a centre stage and led to a circular cabaret-style dance floor. These were designed to facilitate seamless entertainment utilising the different stages and allowing performers to move across the entire set. The showroom was blacked out while guests watched the 9pm fireworks from the balcony. Once they were over, the doors opened, the band struck up ‘Celebrate' and couples spun onto the dance floor.

Challenges
The VIP guests have a level of high exposure to cabaret style events around the world. The unique interpretation of the theme and flawless stage management of the performers was pivotal to engage and impress this sophisticated audience.

Feedback
Our client was delighted with the attention to detail and the way the theme was reflected in every element from the neon stage to the table centrepieces and lighting. A Las Vegas Night NYE to remember.
