All Fired Up - an 80's mixed tape musical

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Musical theatre
Queensland • SA Premiere

Meet Tammy Tooth who’s on the brink of an epic existential midlife crisis. Through an unexpected quirk of fate, Tammy travels back to 1987 and comes face to face with her 15 year old self.  Younger Tammy is on the floor of her teenage bedroom, recording the hits of the decade on her Sanyo double red cassettte player, chewing Hubba Bubba and practising pashing on her Cabbage Patch Doll. Can older Tammy possibly rediscover the meaning of life from her younger self?

Join Tammy in the front seat of the Delorean, crank up the radio and take on a few life lessons from your favourite radio presenter, DJ Neon. Dig out your leg warmers, Choose Life shirt and bust a move to our banging live band rocking the soundtrack of our youth.

Solve the problems of your world; one 80's song at a time.
