This is Girl Band. It’s 1994 and powerhouse record label managers, Craig and Darren, have created the girl band to end all girl bands. They have been moulded, twisted, and worked to become the girls that everyone wants. The Sensation Girls. Problem is, The Sensation Girls don’t know who they are anymore.
When unofficial leader DeeDee unexpectedly quits, things begin to unravel. The girls are getting older and bolder, and they know what they want, what they really, really want.
Supporting New Ghosts Theatre Company through National Theatre of Parramatta’s True West Program, Girl Band by award-winning playwright Katy Warner premieres on Thursday 18 May at Riverside Theatres.
Directed by Sydney Theatre Award winner for Best Director, Lucy Clements (New Ghosts Theatre Company’s Albion), and starring a sensational cast featuring Amy Hack (Griffin Theatre Company’s Ghosting The Party), Jade Fuda (Sport For Jove’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Meg Clarke (Australian Theatre for Young People’s Past The Shallows), Chaya Ocampo (Hayes Theatre Co’s Godspell), LJ Wilson (Little Eggs Collective’s Symphonie Fantastique), and Madeline Marie Dona (Outhouse Theatre Co’s How To Defend Yourself), Girl Band powerfully challenges the exploitation of women in the music industry and amplifies female empowerment.
Laced with the nostalgia of 1990s pop culture and music, Girl Band will transport audiences to a world of lowrise jeans and Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes-inspired rap.
