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 there’s just one problem: he’s also the star of the world’s biggest boyband. Getting Harry’s attention might seem impossible, but there’s nothing that Edna won’t do to prove to Harry that she’s the one.

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

★★★★★ “Like, literally, the most fun you’ll have in the theatre this year!”
LIMELIGHT

★★★★ “Any fan(girl) of musical theatre should see it.”
THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

★★★★ “A thrill ride.”
THE GUARDIAN

A co-production with Queensland Theatre and Brisbane Festival, in association with Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP).
