Choir Girl

The 2012 Fringe Festival has many gems, but nothing so exciting as the choral comedy pop hit wonder Choir Girl. This dark comic monologue of isolation, connectedness, unrequited love and madness is accompanied by a fourteen-member choir that will blow you to the wall. Set in suburban Melbourne, we meet an average woman who is happily living her average life. Or so it seems. Susan is group-singing’s most dedicated member and desperately wants to be just like Annette Funicello, but life just never turns out the way it should. As our star treads the fine line between dedication and obsessive mania we see a side to her that isn’t so sweet. Original choral adaptations of Top 40 Hits and Golden Oldies are merged with harmonious aural soundscapes to create a 60-minute blast of comedy and harmonies. Come along to laugh, obsess and harmonise with us. Venue: Lithuanian Club, 44 Errol St, North Melbourne Dates: September 28 - October 13 (Except Mondays) Times: 9pm (Sundays 8pm) Tickets: Full $23, Conc. $18, Tuesday $16, Group $16 We've got double passes for the opening weekend just tell us your secret obsession.
