As Hamilton proved, in a world where new musicals are often focus-grouped into blandness, fabulous butterflies can still emerge from the chrysalis of a single brilliant mind. Such is Fangirls, whose book, music and lyrics are by young Sydney-born writer Yve Blake. 

Fascinated by the way that society can see a mob of screaming fans as “embarrassing” (if female, and at a pop concert) - but “passionate” (if male at a footy match), Yve set out to write the show she wished her 14-year-old self could have seen: a comedy all about the ways that the world tries to convince young women that they’re not as worthy as their brothers. It follows Edna, a plucky misfit scholarship girl who believes that she alone can win the heart of the world’s biggest pop star; Harry. Sure, he has 38 million other fans, but for Edna, that’s merely a hurdle. Because there’s nothing she won’t do to meet Harry. No really, nothing. 

With an amazing eclectic cast (including Aydan from The Voice), inexhaustibly witty dialogue, and heart-pumping, infectious songs, it’s an ode to love that smashes all generational generalisations: whether or not you’ve ever been a fangirl/boy it will move you and leave you with involuntary grin syndrome. 

After an international bidding war amongst major US and UK producers, this gem of a show was poised to take the theatres of the world by storm when suddenly they went dark. The upside for you is still being able to say you were there at the start: to experience its wild energy bursting out of its intimate setting. Hurry, as this will go off! 

“Whether you screamed for The Beatles, One Direction, or your footy team in the grand final, you will find something to connect with in Fangirls.” Limelight  

 “Loud and funny and raw, with a powerful message delivered with sass and joy. Like teenage girls, this show is destined to go far Sydney Morning Herald  

Draws you in until you’re sharing every rollercoaster emotional moment…a life-affirming night of pure theatrical escapism” The Australian 

“Tender, hilarious and painfully relatable.” Brisbane Courier Mail 

“The ensemble . . . is the future of musical theatre we need and deserve.” Time Out
