SHOWGIRL | STRIPPER | COSTUMIER | PRODUCER
Hailing from Australia via South Africa, Frankie Valentine has been blazing trails across stages since 2008. Showgirl, stripper, producer and costume extraordinaire are just some of the many hats she wears. Valentine has performed all over Australia and Europe, from balls to the wall club shows to the grandest affairs in town, from strip clubs to State Theatres. Her fierce brand of bump and grind has earned her a reputation as one of Australia’s most illustrious showgirls.
Valentine has performed at festivals around the globe including Adelaide Cabaret, Paris Burlesque Festival, Australian Fringe Festivals and of course The Australian Burlesque Festival Headliner Tour. 2014 saw Frankie touring theatres around the country with the epic production Dames of Throne produced by Tenderloins Productions. She went on to feature in Kill Bill and Sweet Meat with Tenderloins.
Frankie co-produced the sell out show The Jitterbug Club alongside Mojo Juju, which toured the east coast and was featured at Adelaide Cabaret Festival. Baby Got Back – The Homage to Hiney, produced by Valentine and Vesper White is a regular on the fringe circuit after it’s debut sellout season in 2015 and continues to grow. Frankie and Vesper also brought Naked Girls Reading to Australia for the first time, which has gone on to sprout chapters around the country.
Her background in costume has found her working in such places as The Australian Ballet, The Malthouse Theatre and Victorian Opera. Frankie’s talent for aesthetics and eye for detail can be seen in her acts and productions as well as the pieces she designs and makes for other performers.
