New Zealand Premiere
Don’t miss the New Zealand premiere of this scrumptious coming of age musical set in the 1950's.
Directed by Joanne Simpson
Music Directed by Anna McBride
The lead character is a teenager Lisa who joins the staff of a fashionable department store while she waits for her exam results. Over a summer that changes her life, she befriends the colourful characters of the women's clothing department. Each is on the precipice of change - facing independence, working for a living and what it means to be a woman.
The Age wrote "Tim Finn's songs range from Broadway-inspired numbers to true blue ballads, from witty patter songs to shares of blues and jazz standards. They're beautifully integrated with the dramatic action, and the comic lyrics are priceless."
