Butterfly Dandy

Coming to you in May 2015 from Valley Artists Inc

A musical written by Alana Valentine, directed by Dain Southwell and starring real-life husband and wife team Daz Philip and Fiona Migan-Philip, “Butterfly Dandy” tells the story of ageing soubrette Miss Mirabella Martin.

It’s 1905 and Australian woman have just secured the right to vote, but the only thing on Mirabella’s mind is securing a spot with the King of Tivoli, Mr Harry Rickards.

Rickards is traveling the country searching for new acts for his internationally renowned Tivoli Circuit.

With the help of her accompanist Tommy, Mirabella works to develop a new act with some surprising and quite unexpected results.

Performances 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8 and 9 May at Laguna Community Hall

Can Pay. Should Pay….cause it’s entirely worth it.

Just to make clear the political orientation of this play – on more than one occasion, it pointedly accuses the Communist Party, yes that Communist Party, of being not really left wing enough. So not likely to be on Andrew Bolt’s list of things to see and almost definitely absent from the National Curriculum being currently prepared by our duly elected Minister for Education.
