A popular face on Australian screens, Virginia Gay is known for roles in All Saints, Winners and Losers, ABC’s Savage River and SBS’s A Safe Home.

She is fresh from hosting the sold-out opening night of the Cabaret Festival’s Variety Gala at the Festival Theatre, and was announced as the 2024 festival artistic director at Mark Nadler’s Hootenanny show on Saturday night.

“Adelaide Cabaret Festival is a place where I have had the most nourishing, the most extraordinary performance experiences of my life and where I have witnessed, and performed alongside, world-class Australian acts and international stars,” says Gay.

“I love Adelaide audiences and their openness and willingness to see new work – their warm embracing presence and response to this beloved festival is just the most amazing feeling.

“I’m so excited for 2024 – for the game-changing iconic acts, for the up-and-comers who I know you’re going to love. I’m proud, I’m honoured and I’m so looking forward to delivering a 2024 program that will blow your socks off.”
