Confessions of a Mormon Boy

“Before The Book of Mormon there was a Mormon Boy!”

The international one-man sensation Confessions of a Mormon Boy comes to Australia!

This transformational true story of extremes–from perfect Mormon Boy in Utah to perfect Rent Boy in Manhattan–is told with humor, song, and unflinching honesty as outcast Oxy-Mormon and Outer Critics Circle Award Nominee, Steven Fales, ultimately finds a middle ground and learns what it means to finally come home. Based on original off-Broadway direction by Tony Award-winner Jack Hofsiss (The Elephant Man), this critically acclaimed 90-minute solo play has educated and entertained audiences across the US and around the world.

After conversion therapy, excommunication, divorce, prostitution and drugs, an exiled sixth-generation Latter Gay Saint reclaims his kids and Donny Osmond smile. This extraordinary, life-affirming journey to hell and back is now Part One in Mormon Boy Trilogy.

Dahlin! It’s the Jeanne Little Show – at The Butterfly Club

Written and directed by award-winning Melbourne playwright, Kieran Carroll, DAHLIN! IT’S THE JEANNE LITTLE SHOW is a portrait of one of Australia’s most loved entertainers and is being performed at The Butterfly Club as part of the 2020 Midsumma Festival.

Gold Logie winner Jeanne Little, rose to prominence in 1974 when she began regular appearances on The Mike Walsh Show. After becoming the most popular woman on Australian television in the 1970s, Jeanne’s talents and career blossomed in numerous ways. From appearances on numerous TV shows, to starring in the hit musical Jerry Girls; singing for Princess Diana and Prince Charles at the Sydney Opera House, to worldwide touring shows playing Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe, Jeanne Little’s contribution to Australian entertainment is immeasurable.

DAHLIN! IT’S THE JEANNE LITTLE SHOW performed with great aplomb by Melbourne performer Caroline Ferguson traces Jeanne’s humble beginnings raised by a single mum, her youthful years in London, her successful and loving marriage to interior designer, Barry Little, the many famous people she met along the way and her attempts to be both mother and TV star. The stories are wrapped in warmth, with Jeanne’s own brand of zany and irrepressible humour always present. This high energy and fantastically funny show is the story of an Australian icon who did things her way.

DAHLIN! IT’S THE JEANNE LITTLE SHOW is a wonderful show for all. It will bring a smile, a laugh and joy to everyone.

‘A great show bringing back fantastic memories. Laughs, sing-alongs, feet tapping. We couldn’t stop talking about Jeanne.’
