Trevor Ashley's FAT SWAN Returns to Melbourne, Now thru Oct 6
Double Helpmann Award nominee (Best Cabaret Performer – Diamonds Are For Trevor / Best Lead Male in a Musical -Fat Swan) Trevor Ashley is back. After sell-out seasons of FAT SWAN at the Spegieltent, Melbourne in March and the Seymour Centre Sydney, Natalie Portly is back to delight and disgust audiences for a return - but this time she has brought with her a couple of new friends.
Trevor Ashley stars in this "delightfully campy" and crass adults-only panto about a ballet dancer with body dysmorphia who dreams of being a star! Can she overcome the obstacles of a psychotic mother, the choreographer from hell, and a lesbian ballerina with a dark side, and make it out the other end alive? Well, no actually.
Joining the cast is the Helpmann winning star of Billy Elliott, fresh from a two-year stint on The West End, the incomparable Genevieve Lemon. She will play Natalie's demented mother, Barbara Hershey-Bar. Starring opposite Trevor and Genevieve is TV's BRENDAN MOAR and Jersey Boys' Danielle Barnes.
