FANGIRLS: World Premiere Cast Recording – based on the award-winning Australian stage musical sensation – is OUT NOW! Released via Ghostlight Records, the label will present their first ever Australian cast album.
FANGIRLS follows the story of Edna. She’s fourteen, awkward, blisteringly smart and, also, in love with a boy called Harry. The only problem is, so are 38 million other people – because Harry’s in the world’s biggest boy band: True Connection. When Harry’s band announces a show in her hometown, Edna knows that this is her ONE chance to try to meet Harry and save him from his miserable overworked life. But just how far will she go in the name of love? With a dazzling cast, inexhaustibly witty dialogue, and a score best described as a “Pop Concert meets Rave meets Church,” FANGIRLS is a subversive musical comedy about how we ask young women to see themselves. Whether or not you’ve ever been a fan, FANGIRLS will move you, because this is a story about feeling underestimated, and choosing to love without apology.
The album features cast members Yve Blake as Edna, Chika Ikogwe as Jules, Kimberley Hodgson as Brianna, James Majoos as Saltypringl, Sharon Millerchip as Caroline, Ayesha Madon as Lily, and Blake Appelqvist as Harry. Produced and mixed by David Muratore, and featuring vocal arrangements by Alice Chance. Zara Stanton serves as music director, and she provides additional vocal arrangements. Featuring book, musics and lyrics by wunderkind Yve Blake, the show will continue its blockbuster, soldout Australian national tour at Arts Centre Melbourne from April 28 to May 9.
