South East Arts is excited to present an outrageous and fun-packed musical comedy show in Bodalla on May 25.
“Oh My God I've Been Kidnapped And I Hate What I’m Wearing” follows the story of Sugar, a 1960's showgirl with a broken heart, a smoking gun and a future in the clink, when things get bad…hilariously bad.
Set in a 1960's paperback Kings Cross and featuring a series of infamous Sydney Night Clubs and gambling dens, Oh My God I've Been Kidnapped And I Hate What I’m Wearing is a big hearted comedy about a showgirl and her dramatic late night life.
Sugar’s been teetering on the brink of stardom for many years. Her choice of men doesn't get her any closer to the big time.
But after a spat with her current squeeze she shoots him dead and suddenly she's all over the papers. Running from the law and appeasing a growing fan base is hard enough but then she crashes and things will never be the same again.
“We are pleased to be touring this show from Drew Fairley and Kate Smith,” explained Andrew Gray from South East Arts. “Local audiences may remember Bangers and Mash and The No Chance in Hell Hotel – both fantastic shows from Fairley and Smith we toured through the region a few years ago”.
Parodying Hitchcock, cabaret torch song singers, pulp fiction horror and 1960’s glamour, Oh My God I've Been Kidnapped and I Hate What I'm Wearing is an hilarious sequins and gaffer tape backstage comedy - with great songs and an ironic, yet hopeful, eye playing with ‘the girl done wrong’ trope. Featuring all original songs and the well-loved chemistry between Smith and Fairley.
The Bodalla show is part of a tour across the region by South East Arts which aims to bring quality performances to regional audiences.
Kidnapped is touring through the South East region thanks to a grant from Arts on Tour. Funds for this grant have been made available by Create NSW on behalf of the NSW Government.
The show is also part of the River of Art festival program – check out more at www.riverofart.com.au
