Billy Loves Cha Cha Forever

Kings Cross, Australia – New Year’s Eve, 1968. On the floor of a pokey flat lies the dead body of a street hustler shot at close range, straight through the heart. A man stands over him whistling Auld Lang Syne. A year earlier, in a seedy nightclub called The Boom Boom Room, dressed in a fake fur and sequined frock, Cha Cha weaves her magic on the small appreciative crowd. That night she meets Billy, a brash young boy from Melbourne and falls in love. Then the fairy-tale ends. Local pimp, Louis, has a less romantic idea for the star-crossed lovers…

CAT take great pride in presenting this Cracked Actors production by award winning playwright/director Noel Anderson. Few plays capture the Zeitgeist of one era. This one captures both the rough ‘n’ ready iconoclastic time in which it is set with the current yearning and nostalgia for an era that entrenched the LGBTIQ community in the mainstream of Australian culture.

Billy Loves Cha Cha Forever! is a bittersweet story. It has more frocks than Priscilla and more plot twists than Sleuth. Go on, you know you’ll love it!

Noel Anderson has written plays including ‘Audrey Hepburn and I Consider Our Assets’ (Melba Spiegeltent, Melbourne), ‘Andy Warhol’s Fifteen Minutes of Fame’ and his play on the AIDS epidemic, ‘Dark Victory’ (Playtime finalist Midsumma Festival 2016). He has directed more than fifty shows, including the 2017 hit Melbourne Fringe season of ‘Love Kills’.

Billy Loves Cha Cha Forever! will be Noel’s first production at Cracked Actors.

He’s Every Woman

“Exceptional… A first-class duo” – The Advertiser (Fringe World Winner)

Justin Clausen (The Voice) and Jamie Burgess (Fortified, Highway Superstar) want you to strap in for a night of big songs, big laughs and big… hair. Bolder and sassier than ever, the boys are ready to forget about the breaks, and drive headlong into a show stuffed full of hits from the ’80’s to now… but mostly Celine.

2019 FRINGE WORLD WEEKLY AWARD – Winner ‘Best Cabaret’
2019 FRINGE WORLD BEST CABARET AWARD – Finalist

“He’s Every Woman is a real winner. I guarantee they will have you up and dancing… I can’t think of a more pleasurable way to spend the evening.”

— Theatrepeople

“Great music, great showmanship and despite making fun of themselves and their divas, an obvious love for their craft and the songs they sing. I loved it!”

— The Clothesline

“With or without the frills and sparkles, Clausen and Burgess are a first class vocal duo.”

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.

As part of Midsumma Festival.
