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
