All shows start at 7.30pm
Two women miss a late-night final flight to a girlfriend’s funeral and share a hotel room for the night. They drink a lot, laugh a lot and watch chick flicks, as their friend would’ve wanted. Things get messy, secrets are exposed & they sing the best songs from the best chick flicks ever!
This boisterous laugh out loud (and sing out loud !) stage show ranges from tears of sadness to tears of sheer joy as our heroines dig deep into Pretty Woman vs The Bodyguard, Drew Barrymore or Sandra Bullock, and whether Dirty Dancing or The Notebook features the most incredible ending ever. Basically, we’re talking the best girls only night out (or in) ever!
Written by international comedy writer Matthew Hardy (Effie the Virgin Bride, Good News Week, Kelsey Grammer, One Man Breaking Bad, The Sketch Show), with the help of Terri Psiakis & Beth Newell of acclaimed New York website ‘Reductress’, Chick Flick crosses boundaries between comedy, pub choir and musical stage show to position itself as something totally new, and yet warmly familiar.
Jo Stanley (FOX FM, GOLD FM) and Talei Wolfgramm (The Wolfgramm Sisters, RocKwiz, Paul Kelly) star in this outrageous evening of laughs and sing-a-longs including classic rom-com songs such as “I Will Always Love You”, “Pretty Woman”, “When You Say Nothing At All”, “Shoop Shoop Song”, “Love Is All Around”, “Don’t You Forget About Me” and “Time Of My Life” among many others.
Bring your girlfriends along and join Jo and Talei for a laugh and a sing and if you do accidently snort your drink out your nose, well hey, you won’t be alone.
