Phuket Simon Cabaret is a theatre offering an evening of live music, dance and comedic performances by a troupe of transgender entertainers. Founded in 1991, it’s a spectacular display of color, originality and fun, with a single show combining a wide range of music from cultures around the world.

When you walk into the theatre just south of Patong, you’ll come across saxophone music, plush seats, and dimmed lights. Extravagant costumes, makeup and impressive sets take you from Egypt to Latin America and from China to Thailand in a single evening.

Good to know about Phuket Simon Cabaret

Phuket Simon Cabaret is a family-friendly show, so it's common to see travelers with children enjoying the lively dance and music performances. Its dazzling set changes and brilliant colors appeal to a multicultural audience of all ages.

The comic relief segment is slightly predictable but still draws out a few laughs. A Tina Turner impersonator packs a punch, getting the audience going. At the end of the 70-minute show, all of Simon's performers pose for photos outside with members of the audience for a small fee.
