WORLD-renowned acts are heading to Midland to bring the wildly successful Fringe World Festival back to the region this month.

Stevenson Theatre, Seventh Avenue and the Robot Bun Factory joined forces to form the Pickled Swan Fringe hub with an array of activities, shows, food and fun for the young, old, the mild and bold.

Festival goers can see the Divas All Male Revue which promises to portray female divas like Amy Winehouse and Adele like you’ve never seen them before.

The Recurring Misadventure of Prince Pout lll stars Roland Taureau, a newcomer to the Australian Fringe scene.

After successful runs at Darwin Fringe and Darwin Pride he’s ready to shock and awe Midland audiences with his brand of crazed comedy and cabaret as audiences follow his journey from pre-school transvestite to Eurotrashbag royalty.

The Zahara Dance Company will perform the Faerie Queen, based on a novel by Midland playwright Luke Heath.

The Festival runs from January 26 until February 25.
