Review by Giorgia Beasley | 20 January 2022

When I read the description for Golden Age Girls and bought my tickets, I figured I was in for an upbeat evening of being wowed by the vocal prowess of two WAAPA graduates. But what I got, was so much more.

Taking on four characters between the two of them, the hugely talented Amy Fortnum and Jess Clancy took the audience on an ever surprising, hilarious and original journey through the trials and triumphs of two suburban mums desperate for success on the stage, at literally any cost.

While the storyline is a little bit patchy, with one seemingly focal character from the early scenes quickly disappearing never to be mentioned again (hope you’re okay Barbra!), the comedic timing of our two heroines more than makes up for it. Every line landed with bursts of laughter from the audience, as we were continually shocked by how far the ladies were willing to go to be the stars of the show.

Weaving the story together were pieces of musical theatre, pop and cabaret classics. And just when you might have been thinking they couldn’t possibly have another genre up their sleeves, out comes some wildly impressive tap dancing. The talent and energy with which they performed every song made for such an engaging 50 minutes, the show absolutely flew by. I can easily see how and why they’ve introduced a two hour version of the show for their Friday and Saturday sessions, the audience truly couldn’t get enough of them.

Their sidekick in Peter was equally impressive, landing jokes and singing his own pieces, all while keeping the show moving as the pianist for our two stars.

Golden Age Girls is a awesomely crowd pleasing show, a great one to take along friends and grandparents alike for an overflowing barrel of laughs.
