Mortality, vitality and virility are under the knife with the best of Broadway in this Botox-pumping, lipo-sucking, wrinkle-relaxing cabaret that will take years off your life!

DivaLicious and their band will attempt to defy gravity, claw back their lost youth, and launch themselves into the stratosphere! High notes, heavenly bodies, the count-down has begun...

Fremantle & Joondalup:


Inspired by Absolutely Fabulous, DivaLicious will attempt to claw back the years as they explore the dubious joys of being "midults" in a world which worships youth and beauty, flawless skin and stick-like figures.

"Women of a 'certain age' have a lot to put up with" said DivaLicious soprano, co-producer and writer, Penny Shaw.

"Approaching this subject with our usual irreverence, we have put a new twist on popular musical theatre songs, rewritten lyrics and made a few delightful new discoveries that deal with this delicate subject matter in a humorous way!"

"Men don't get away with it either but it is not their drooping faces they are concerned with...," she said.

Directed by Nicole Stinton and accompanied by Musical Director on keyboard, David Wickham, plus the groovy sounds of bass and drums, the DivaLicious divas, Fiona Cooper Smyth and Penny Shaw will attempt to defy gravity (and everything/one else) and launch themselves from their earthly existence into the stratosphere!

High notes and heavenly bodies, the countdown has begun....

"Fiona Cooper Smith and Penny Shaw provide such a fantastic night out. They combine their two powerful soprano voices to tackle some songs that shock, make you laugh out loud, and make you feel insecure – in the best way possible. We are all going to have an experience with "gravity" one day. They transport you into a world of an untouched cabaret market which proves to be a goldmine of success." Dircksey Magazine ★★★★★
