Trevor Ashley’s hilarious new adults-only show, THE LYIN’ QUEEN, opens at the Sydney Opera House on 26 November for a very limited season. Demand for tickets has been high so this riotous romp will transfer to the Eternity Playhouse as from 10 December for 13 performances only. Expect ridiculous puppets, song parodies, and more out of date politicians than a Liberal party fundraiser.
Parodying everything from The Lion King to CATS, Australian politics to disaster flicks (one and the same really), Home and Away to The Masked Singer, THE LYIN’ QUEEN, a riotous musical comedy brings together the multi-award losing team who brought you Fat Swan, Little Orphan TrAshley and the smash hit The Bodybag.
Joining Ashley for the first time is Phil Scott (The Wharf Revue), plus American Psycho stand out Shannon Dooley, Elenoa Rokobaro (Book of Mormon, Caroline or Change) and Brendan Irving (Rocky Horror Show). The extraordinary costumes are by Angie White (Heathers, Mack & Mabel) and choreography by Cameron Mitchell (Catch Me If You Can, Calamity Jane) with lighting design by Gavan Swift (Harry Potter, Heathers).
THE LYIN’ QUEEN brings you romance, comedy, politics, trash culture at its cheapest, and a send-up of every movie ever made on or near an island.
