AIN'T WE GOT FUN (2006)
MUSICAL / CABARET SHOW FROM THE 1920s
Written By Sue Oldknow
Directed By Terry Crowe
It is the 1920s and we are invited to spend the evening as customers at "Tootsie's".
It's a glittery dive, shabby but shiny, a slightly sleazy Speakeasy owned by feared gangster boss, Babyface Balconi and starring his foozy, Tootsie Trallie.
She may have a little brain and little talent but as long as she's got big......well, you know what I'm saying.
The dancing girls at "Tootsie's" have seen better days, some are feeling as worn out as their faded costumes. All of them dream of a better life and scheme to get out of the Speakeasy.
Greta wants to go to Hollywood and be a star in the Talkies, Lulu knows her only escape is to hook a rich man. All of them have a story to tell.
Set in this fascinating time in history with plenty of fabulous songs of the era "Ain't We Got Fun" is a perfect opportunity to get dressed up as a gangster or flapper and escape into the decade frantic to have a good time.
