This is Edna. She’s 14, and she’s in love with Harry. There’s just one problem:
Harry is in ‘True Connection’ – the biggest boyband in the world. When True Connection announces a tour stop in Edna’s city she realises this is her one chance to convince Harry of their destiny, and she’ll do anything – ANYTHING – in the name of true love…
Fangirls is a thrilling new musical by a barnstorming young talent called Yve Blake. Proof that young women can do anything, Yve is also playing Edna. She’s joined by a cast of new young faces with brilliant voices for a show that’s Beyoncé concert-meets religious revival, with a wicked sense of humour, about love and other big feelings in the age of the internet.
This show is for anyone who’s ever been a fan. It’s especially for anyone who is or has ever been a girl with a screaming stadium of feelings inside them. It’s dreamy, wild, and hyperalive.
A co-production with Queensland Theatre, Belvoir and Brisbane Festival in association with ATYP.
