The Deb

For the very first time…

THE DEB

A co-production with Camp Sugar Productions

YOU’VE GOT A BALL? WELL HERE’S YA BELLE!

SEASON EXTENDED

That’s right! By popular demand – after receiving rave reviews and performing to sold-out houses – we are ecstatic to announce that we are extending our season of The Deb by TWO WEEKS!

We have added 8 new shows, playing 26 May – 4 June. The season MUST END 4 June so get your tickets while you still can!

High school outcast and whimsical mega-dork Taylah longs to be the princess in her own fairy tale. Which isn’t easy in Dunburn – a drought-stricken Aussie town struggling for survival, where cool girls and footy hunks lead the pack. But when her hyper-woke, inner-city cousin Maeve comes to stay, the pair join forces on a quest to make their mark on the best night of the year: the town’s annual Debutante Ball. In their search for social redemption and the spotlight, chaos ensues – along with a whole lot of fake tan, lace, and diamante tiaras for ya up-do.

Conceived and co-directed by the hilarious Hannah Reilly (Winner of the 2019 Rebel Wilson Comedy Commission) with original music by multi-ARIA Award-winning Megan Washington, The Deb is a heart-warming and uproarious coming-of-age story about friendship, courage, and the beauty of coming out as yourself.

Don’t miss the debut of what will no doubt join Muriel’s Wedding and FANGIRLS in the ranks of beloved Australian stage musicals.

WARNINGS: Strong language, sexual references, high chance of a mullet
