Fantastically funny and full to bursting with disco hits including 'It's Raining Men', 'Macarthur Park' 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' and many more, this Tony-winning tuner comes from Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott, adapted from the irresistible 1994 movie of the same name. So grab your frocks and your feathers and head out in style to enjoy an unforgettable night at the theatre.

What's the story?

Follow Tick, Bernadette and Adam, a glamorous Sydney-based performing trio that agree to take their show to a resort in Alice Springs, in the middle of the outback.
