The Bodybag: The Panto
From: May 31 2018
After a sold-out Sydney season, don’t miss THE BODYBAG: THE PANTO when it comes to Melbourne for 3 shows only!
Multi-award-winning superstar Rachel Marinade (Trevor Ashley) is one of the most successful entertainers ever to have come runner-up on Australian Idol*. But after a spate of creepy “fan mail” it’s clear that Rachel needs protection. Not only that, after being charged in local court for holding a fake driver’s license, she also needs transport.
Enter ex-ASIO officer, and current Uber driver Tank Charmer (Gus Murray). It’s not only his job to protect her - but to get her to her destination with 5 stars. Who knew they could fall in lust?
With a cast of complicated characters including a bitchy sister (Markesha McCoy), an ab-riddled backup dancer (Heath Keating) and Rachel’s ambitious ten-year-old daughter (Nicholas Craddock), you will hear all the songs you know, like you’ve never heard, or wanted to hear them before. Expect a plethora of 90’s divas coming down from a coke-fueled bender.
This genre defying hilarious romantic-musical-thriller will have you rolling in the aisles and more shocked than Barnaby Joyce's press secretary!
*this show has nothing to do with nor is endorsed by Australian Idol.
