Love Kylie? Love the 90’s? Love Soap? Bringing sun, songs and ’90s nostalgia, AJN Productions is taking Summer Street – The Hilarious Aussie Soap Opera Musical! out for a spin. This new musical is heading to Waterloo East Theatre to bring some sun and fun to London. As four Aussie soap stars try to resurrect their careers, there are hilarious and unexpected consequences – and, of course, plenty of songs to tap your foot to.
With the 30th anniversaries of Neighbours and Home and Away last year, Summer Streetprovides the perfect opportunity to recapture the glory days of Kylie and Jason and relive the joy of tuning in every week to watch the captivating tales from Down Under. Writer and director Andrew Norris looks back to the ’90s Aussie soap opera scene and brings it to life with this original musical comedy.
Norris comments: ‘This is a nostalgic trip down memory lane to the heyday of the Aussie soap opera, which is packed full of fun and accompanied by a soundtrack of pastiche songs from the 1990s. Summer Street explores the world of soap, the stars who inhabit it and exactly how much some people are prepared to pay for fame. Everyone has their price!’
