Brisbane Powerhouse and Showqueen Productions present
Wed 14 - Sat 17 Nov 2012
An Adults-Only Panto is here, FAT and here!
The Helpmann nominated Trevor Ashley (Hairspray, Priscilla, Diamonds Are For Trevor) plays Natalie Portly, a ballet dancer with body dysmorphia who dreams of being a star! Can she overcome the obstacles of a psychotic mother, the choreographer from hell, and a lesbian ballerina with a dark side and make it out the other end alive? Well, no actually.
Written with Phil Scott (The Wharf Revue), Fat Swan is a laugh-a-minute musical panto with an all-star cast including Tara Morice, Brendan Moar (TV's The Renovators) and Lisa Adam (Jersey Boys) together with a fabulous live band.
Fat Swan takes you deep into the heart-rending, heel-chafing, toe-bleeding, self-harming world of ballet – and will surely make you wonder what your mother did with your old pointe shoes.
Add to your evening with our Cabaret Menu from Bar Alto. For more information click the link below or contact Box Office.
Trevor Ashley is nominated for a Helpmann Award for Best Male Actor in a Musical for Fat Swan.
Duration: 115 minutes including an interval
