Little Orphan Trashley

Starring Trevor Ashley, Rhonda Burchmore, Gary Sweet and Rhys Bobridge with Tina Jackson and Coral Mercer-Jones

Direct from a sell-out season at the Sydney Opera House, the writers who brought you the smash hit Fat Swan (Trevor Ashley and Phil Scott) team up with acclaimed director Craig Ilott (Smoke & Mirrors) to give you this uproarious new adults-only panto with an all-star cast.

Ashley stars as little orphan Fannie, a ten-year-old with a terrible secret... one that she can’t even share with her inmates at the orphanage, let alone the bad-tempered and drunken Miss Trannigan (Rhonda Burchmore). You see, Fannie is not yet all woman! To get her gender-reassignment surgery, she’ll have to find her true birth parents to get their permission.

Lucky for Fannie, she meets acclaimed photographer/multi-millionaire Daddy Warlow (Gary Sweet) who promises to sponsor her. Can she survive a rigorous set of blind auditions, a very “arty” photoshoot, and an appearance on evil controversial talk-back radio personality Ellen Jones’ show before she finds her parents?

To make her wish come true, Fannie may need more than just her trusty ex-sniffer dog Bullshit (Rhys Bobridge).

Featuring songs, audience participation, and more parody than you can poke a stick at, this brand new adults-only panto will have you in fits of laughter... and have you wishing that you too could be adopted by a sexy bald millionaire.
