“A live music experience of such vein-throbbing, entertainment-packing stagecraft … DRUMMER QUEENS is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser, and suitable for families too. Having seen this in Brisbane and visited some dress rehearsals the vibe of girls and stage set was thrilling enough to know that this was going to be a unique show and it was! Energy combined was pretty special and there were some big moments and great stage effects.
Joe Accaria, co-created the mastermind of getting this together and directed by Nigel Turner-Carroll and with choreography by drummer girl dancer Peta Anderson, the extraordinary Australian cast includes Georgia Anderson, Peta Anderson, Stef Furnari, Niki Johnson, Salina Myat, Lisa Purmodh, Claudia Wherry and Ned Wu, with Sasha Lian Diaz and Astrid Holz as swing performers.
DRUMMER QUEENS delivers a brilliant blend of movement and rhythm, with a huge variety of rhythmic styles that are irresistible and powerfully inspirational. DRUMMER QUEENS is the new must-see original Australian theatrical experience.
This is women in power here with the DRUMMER QUEENS I sure when the international border’s open they will conquer the world and they deserve as don’t we all love to hear the drums it is an instrument that I get lost in.
