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.
"Experience this show or miss out on life!"
"It’s kooky and distinctive and hilarious and fun!"
"A cracker of a show! Brought back great memories."
Tour supported by the Touring Queensland Fund and arTour, initiatives of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
