Pants and other things is the exciting new show combining musical theatre and burlesque from local performer Lexi McGee showing at LiveLighter Busselton Fringe on March 1-2.

Star of the show Lexi McGee said it was an inclusive show for all ages.

“My style of music is very folky, emotional songs with silly content including children’s haircuts, magical fairyland creatures and gender and sexuality,” she said.

The teacher and gender and sexuality educator runs teaching workshops on diversity and inclusivity when she’s not performing her weird and wacky Fringe show.

“I worked as a fairy for 15 years, so the show is about the kooky stuff I see every day,” McGee said.

“Fringe is all about giving the weird things a go, expect the unexpected.”

The Weld Theatre and Dunsborough Hall will see the show run back-to-back with another weird and wacky LiveLighter Busselton Fringe show, BurLEZque.

BurLEZque is a theatrical piece written by a group of young women “on the queer spectrum”. McGee is the master of ceremonies of BurLEZque and her character’s name is Ginger Le Minge.

“We have plenty of queer spaces for performance by gay men in Western Australia,” she said.

“But we wanted to promote queer spaces for women.

“We are celebrating it (queerness) and we want to celebrate it with everybody.”
