The Helpmann non-nominated Trevor Ashley (Hairspray, Priscilla, Diamonds Are For Trevor) plays Natalie Portly, a ballet dancer with body dysmorphia who dreams of being a star! Can she overcome the obstacles of a psychotic mother, the choreographer from hell, and a lesbian ballerina with a dark side and make it out the other end alive? Well, no actually.
Written with Phil Scott (The Wharf Revue), FAT SWAN is a laugh-a-minute musical panto with an all-star cast including GENEVIEVE LEMON (Billy Elliott), BRENDAN MOAR (TV’s The Renovators) and DANIELLE BARNES (Priscilla) together with a fabulous live band.
FAT SWAN takes you deep into the heart-rending, heel-chafing, toe-bleeding, self-harming world of ballet – and will surely make you wonder what your mother did with your old pointe shoes.
