Meet The CLINTS: an all-80s, all-cousin, all-Queensland cover band who have survived many things – the 80s perm, one of their members being incarcerated in Boggo Road Jail, too many Bunnings sausage sizzles, and now the Coronavirus.

With this in mind they’re saying F*%$ it, embracing the‘new normal’, scooping up their lost dreams and aspirations and, through an unexpectedopportunity, making a tilt for Eurovision as Australia’s wildcard entry. Sometimes ageing is a CLINTand you just have to get on with it.

Catapulted back into the limelight by an ex-member’s murderous scandal, these has-beens who almost-were-beens are resurrecting their '80s costumes, dusting off their sensationally tacky repertoire of 8'0s one-hit wonders, and making a last-ditch effort to get themselves to Eurovision as Australia’s wildcard entry.

Along the way, they’re going to set the record straight with a mind-boggling, chart-topping, riotous, tell-all musical exposé.

This topical, tight, tenacious cabaret follows three women who won’t give up on their dreams – even when circumstances suggest they probably should. Equal parts heart-warming and riotously ridiculous, this is a show about ageing disgracefully, and the real-life compromises women make between caring for their families and following their dreams.

This rollicking new cabaret work, performed by acclaimed Queensland artists Elise Greig, Laine Loxlea-Danann and Lizzie Moore, will have you dancing in your seats and regretting the fashion crimes of your youth.
