A QUEENSLAND THEATRE PRODUCTION

A CELEBRATION OF GLAMOUR, GOWNS AND GROWING UP

The swankiest new home-grown musical since Priscilla was queen, Ladies in Black is a whirling, toe-tapping trip back in time. Based on the novel by Madeleine St John, this uniquely Australian fashion-forward fairy tale has all the shine and sparkle of Broadway.

Sydney, 1959 – a city at the crossroads between the stuffy repression of the 1950s and the glorious liberation of the 1960s … Bright-eyed, bookish school leaver Lisa steps through the doors of the city’s most prestigious department store. She dreams of a life of passion and poetry. Unknown worlds open up as she befriends the colourful denizens of the Ladies Cocktail Frocks Department – including exotic Magda, mysterious mistress of Model Gowns.

With tunes by Tim Finn (Split Enz and Crowded House) and costumes by Gabriela Tylesova (The Rabbits),
woven together by director Simon Phillips (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the Musical, Dream Lover, Muriel’s Wedding – The Musical), Ladies in Black has already wowed audiences in Brisbane and Melbourne. Now it’s Canberra’s turn to get frocked up for the most alluring little number of the season.

A Queensland Theatre Company Production. Originally produced by Queensland Theatre Company in association with Queensland Performing Arts Centre.
