About

Back after a sell out debut season.

Edna’s fourteen and is head over heels in love with Harry – he’s beautiful, talented, perfect. But he’s also the face of ‘True Connection’, the world’s biggest boy band. And getting his attention will stretch the resources of anyone – even someone as clever and resourceful as Edna.

Yve Blake’s uproarious musical makes its much-anticipated return.

Reviews

★★★★★ “Believe the hype. The Fangirls phenomenon is real. This could be the most fun you have in the theatre this year!”

Limelight

★★★★ “Witty and agile with a powerhouse cast, Yve Blake’s musical balances serious social reflections with a loving twinkle in its eye.”

The Guardian

★★★★ “The magic of the show and Paige Rattray’s production lies in celebrating rather than frowning upon the fizzing wonder of being hormonally out of control.”

The Sydney Morning Herald

“This is a powerhouse event: musical, concert, drama, comedy. All staged with brilliance, enthusiasm, finesse, and joy.”

Broadway World

★★★★★ “The cast is young, fierce, diverse and with vocal chops to boot, with many flipping between roles and characters throughout.”

The AU Review

★★★★★ “Fangirls will have you rocking out just as though you were at your favourite band’s concert.”
