Fangirls – Pulsing with adrenaline
Remember your first crush? This musical brings it all rushing back. If you’re a teen in the middle of a first crush of your own, it’ll touch your heart. It’s un-missable, adrenaline packed, and thrilling, and you’ll find yourself fully immersed in the emotion of it all within minutes.
The star is Edna, a 14 year old misfit who adores Harry. Sadly 38 million other girls adore Harry as well. He’s a member of a massive boy band and he has no clue Edna even exists. You probably know the feeling – but then you’ll probably know all the feelings revealed in this clever plot.
When Harry’s band announces a tour stop in Edna's hometown, Sydney, it feels like fate is moving things into place especially for her. This is her chance to meet Harry at last. But how will she catch his attention? And how far is she prepared to go for love?
This show is about so much more than Edna, or a boy band, or teen crushes. It’s a thrillingly subversive comedy about the dangers of underestimating teenage girls. And it’ll blow your mind.
