A witty, wildly energetic musical, filled with all the agony and ecstasy of teen longing.

Book, Music & Lyrics by Yve Blake
Directed by Paige Rattray

Big and bold, this joyous Australian musical about a young girl’s obsession was a runaway hit at Belvoir St Theatre, heralded for making fangirls in every raucous audience of its premiere season.  Now, after its much-anticipated Sydney return, this electrifyingly fresh work is set to thrill Wollongong with its hilarious and heartbreaking look at teenage infatuation.

Edna is 14 and head over heels in love with Harry – he’s beautiful, talented, perfect, but there’s just one problem: he’s also the star of the world’s biggest boyband. Getting Harry’s attention might seem impossible, but there’s nothing that Edna won’t do to prove to Harry that she’s the one.

Yve Blake’s uproarious work is refreshing and effervescent, with a soaring soundtrack featuring the next generation of rockstars in musical theatre. The IPAC stage will be transformed into an atmospheric stadium pop experience full of visual thrill and spectacle.
