Noosa-based professional theatre company Jally Entertainment will be hitting the road yet again with ‘Ladies Night’ featuring American actor Christopher Atkins, of Blue Lagoon fame.
This will be the fourth Australian tour of this production, coming to The Gympie Civic Centre on 25 May at 7.30pm.Jally Entertainment Producer John Bailey believes the continued success of the show is it’s appeal to general theatre-goers.
“It’s a light-hearted comedy with great music, suitable for everyone- not just the ladies. It’s about real men,” he said.
It’s the ultimate night out, starring Christopher Atkins (Blue Lagoon), Steven Tandy (The Sullivans), and Alli Pope (Menopause The Musical). The story of five unemployed guys, motivated by ‘The Chippendales’ to form a male stripping act, in order to make some fast cash. They pitch the notion to a local club owner and take lessons from a slightly shop-worn, dance instructor with a heart-of-gold in all manner of things, including what women really want from a male stripper.
Written by Anthony McCarten and Stephen Sinclair ‘Ladies Night‘ has been translated into twelve languages and remains New Zealand’s most commercially successful play, of all time. With eight sell-out tours of Britain and the U.K, it won France’s premiere theatre award for comedy- The Molière Prize, in 2001.
With fabulous tunes from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s such as ‘Hot Stuff’, ‘Smooth Operator’, and ‘I will Survive’, ‘Ladies Night’ will leave you hyperactive and ready to party.
