Yummy Deluxe - James Welsby (Director) - Artist Statement

Yummy Deluxe is a celebration of the power of femininity, the joy of drag and burlesque, and fun of cabaret.


As a result of Covid 19 lockdowns, Yummy Deluxe has had over a year's worth of bookings cancelled including international tours. It's been very painful, but public health comes first. We understand, even though it's been really hard. We've changed our plans are working on a film project instead! Limitations always provide new perspectives and opportunities.

I'm looking forward to the sights, sounds, smells, and sensations of the theatre. I'm not looking to return exactly as I was before - I'm informed by the pandemic now and have learned and grown from it.
