Aidan Sadler is ready to have the best day of their life. The
only thing that stands in the way is the end of the world.
This original cabaret-cum-musical-cum-cum features a live
band playing original synthwave arrangements punctuated
with anarchic, world class comedy. Come celebrate the
apocalypse soaked in neon lights as we explore our

Fusing cabaret, musical and gig theatre, this electronic acid trip
plunges us into a exploration of the current
political and economic climate through satire. Think 1920’s
weimar cabaret meets New York Arthouse, being played
by a live synth extravaganza!

Melody is the long awaited successor to the 5 star, award-
winning Tropicana, and makes its debut at VAULT Festival.

Weird Wood

Aidan Sadler is an "absolute tornado of a cabaret star", changing the face of the cabaret industry. Described as a “Demonic David Bowie”, they made their debut at Edinburgh Fringe 2021, where they went on to sell out, extend and win "Best Solo Act" at The Scene Alba Awards. Since this, Aidan has toured nationally, storming stages from Manchester to Brighton with their individual style of chaos - recently returning for another smash-hit Edinburgh run.

Aidan has moved into producing further work, having established their equal-stakes radical production collective, Weird Wood. Shows have included East-end residency Khaos (The K Hole), North London residency Weird Wood Presents... (Kings Head Theatre), Brighton based Residency Proud All Stars (Proud Cabaret), Brighton Spiegeltent and Assembly, with a trajectory that featured them in The Scotsman, The Times, Metro, Culture Fix and BBC - to name a few.
