"How to put into words the insanity that is Scarlett Lashes, and
I write that with a grin on my face knowing that never in my 9
years of music have I witnessed ANYTHING like Scarlett Lashes "
Music.net.nz. I have been performing as Scarlett Lashes for the
last eight years, developing my skills as a dancer, singer and

After many years of being a goody-good choir girl, Tegan is
making the leap to the polar opposite side of performing with
Auckland's most scandalous talk show, The Jenny Taylor Show.

Auckland Music Theatre's cabaret Expect the unexpected, and sung
backing vocals for Amici Production's Sister Act in 2017.
Natalie is from Wellington where she starred as Rumpelstiltskin
at age 5 in her parents' lounge. She went on to complete a BA
majoring in Theatre from Victoria University. She moonlights as
rapper Natattack in the underground live music scene performing
alongside the notorious Scarlett Lashes. Acting career highlights
include starring as 'Bess' in Jean Betts' play The Collective,
'Rachel' in Defensability and playing a hobbit called Fritillaria

since that moment spent most of her youth battling creative urges
including dancing, acting and playing the violin badly. By 19, Jen

old vices in 2017, when cast as the lead of a new short film set in
Huntly. Now she's all set to take to task both audience and guests
alike as the eccentric host of Auckland's most scandalous talk
While most kids were pulling sickies to stay home and play video
games, Robbie was doing it for those sweet 11-3 talk shows!
Partially raised by Sally-Jesse, Oprah and Dr Phil, Robbie is
Victoria Theater programme alumni and is performing with Chicken
Thighs Productions for the first time.
