SUPERGIRLY

By Lulu McClatchy

It’s big call, but this could be the funniest live show I have ever seen.
Jeni WilsonWeekend Notes
SuperGirly Lab Kelpie

Strap yourselves in for an all-singing, all-glamour laughfest that skewers those headline-grabbing pop-singers right through their shallow, celebrity-obsessed hearts… delivered by an adorably insane character who secretly wants to be one of them!

A self-crowned “Pop Princess”, SuperGirly used to be an elite A-list celebrity before things went sour and she retreated into both her gaudy mansion… and her fantasy-filled head. Now, with her favourite movie star Bradley Cooper by her side (or perhaps just an unemployed actor who answered an ad in the paper) she feels like nothing can stand in her way to the top.

This is a place where anything can happen… and usually does. No star is safe from SuperGirly’s killer vocals, outrageous lyrics and razor-sharp wit. She takes on some of pop music’s biggest stars, with hysterical digs at the likes of Madonna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, One Direction, The Black Eyed Peas, even the doe-eyed Lorde… and what she does to Britney Spears can only be described as pure justice!

SuperGirly (the alter-ego of Bogan Pride’s Lulu McClatchy) has performed sold-out seasons in the West End and Edinburgh, supported Elton John on his 2002 Australian tour, brought the invite-only Montreal Just For Laughs concert to its knees, and starred in her own BBC sitcom.

SuperGirly: Return of the Pop Princess is a musical rollercoaster, and there are plenty of huge laughs for everyone.

If you LIKE pop music, you’ll love this show; if you HATE pop music, you’ll DEFINITELY love this show. And if you can’t tell the difference between a One Direction and an S-Club 7, you’ll be laughing so hard you won’t care!

An all-out assault on the world of pop that will have you screaming, laughing and wincing – all at the same time – SuperGirly will change the way you listen to pop music forever.

Running Time: 120 minutes (including a 20 min interval).

Audience advice: Strong language and adult themes.

The Weekly Review

“This is quite simply one of the funniest shows of the decade, if not the century.”
Stage Whispers

“McClatchy and Brooks nail it.”
Theatre Press

The Blurb

“What I loved about this show was its appeal to a wide range of audiences… a show you can take your girlfriend, boyfriend, best friend or Great Aunt Betsy to.”
Lip Magazine

“SuperGirly is super fun, super wrong and, quite frankly, I never want to hear another pop song unless SuperGirly is singing it.”
