Gentlemen Prefer Blokes

2010 | Ticketing Manager & Lighting Operator | Melbourne

Screen sirens Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell had it all! They were glamorous, could belt out a tune and diamonds were their best friend. Fame, fortune and scores of suitors were inevitable. In the parallel universe of today the girls are still glamorous belters with a penchant for diamonds, but with one not-so-little difference: these two little girls from little rock are two little boys from Darlinghurst.
Courtney Act & Trevor Ashley team forces and take on some of history’s greatest duos as only they can. This hysterical musical comedy stars Australia’s two brightest stars of drag together in a full show for the first time. Both Trevor and Courtney have toured the country and indeed the world with their solo shows, having both just returned from individual seasons in Europe. This unique show is set to create new standards as Act & Ashley sing live, perform sketches, appear in camp video sequences and dish out their own brand of stand up.
Trevor and Courtney are sure to dazzle and with Phil Scott at the pen they are also sure to be, and cause, a riot.
