Trevor Ashley’s adults-only Christmas show takes a hilarious and bawdy look at pop culture
First there was Fat Swan, then Little Orphan TrAshley and The Bodybag. Now Trevor Ashley is back with another Christmas panto spoofing just about every movie set in or on an island. Ashley plays Gaye Wray (from Home and Away), an actress trying to leave her soap opera roots behind now she’s starting to make it in Hollywood. But when she returns home from Los Angeles to star in the commercial for a new island theme park, she finds herself in serious trouble. An electrical storm hits the island and chaos ensues. Will the park’s star attraction – King Schlong – stay safely behind bars? What do you reckon?
The show is co-written by The Wharf Revue’s Phil Scott, who co-stars as Dr Richard Rabbitborough, alongside Shannon Dooley, Elenoa Rokobaro and Brendan Irving. Expect a song and dance spectacular, plenty of raunchy gags, and spectacular costumes. The show plays a brief season at the Sydney Opera House before transferring to the Eternity Playhouse in Darlinghurst.
