Attori

Attori will be our MC as well as part of the entertainment line up for the weekend. 

Attori bring you classic favourites from decades past including songs from “Vegas” and big band numbers... and they have the dinner suits, the attitude and the banter to match. The entertainers combine their skills to produce a versatile high quality corporate entertainment package. This performance can also expand to a cabaret act, or the ultimate full-length theatre show. The individual performers have honed their skills in numerous venues and from a variety of performances, in both amateur and professional venues throughout Queensland.
