|FREE TIX - Desperate and Dateless|

| The Ginger and Tonic gals are at a loss as to why their relationships never work out, after all they're vivacious, outgoing, gorgeous women?! They've played hard to get, then easy to get, tried salsa classes, and also swiped right on Tinder. They've even tried just "being themselves", and nothing seems to work. |
But every pot must have a lid and these determined women won't stop until they find theirs...
Specialising in original songs as well as impertinent parodies, female a cappella group Ginger and Tonic's combination of superb voices create their unique, much lauded sound. Making their Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut with award-winning production Desperate and Dateless at The Coopers Malthouse, these ladies know how to wow an audience.
Since forming in 2010, Ginger and Tonic have performed as a headline act at the Festival of Voices in Hobart, toured to Germany to perform at the International A Cappella Festival in Leipzig, and in 2012 won first place at SingFest – Australia's leading a cappella festival and competition. They have also performed at festivals all around Australia including Port Fairy Folk Festival, Perth's FringeWorld, Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Cabaret Festival and the Queenscliff Music Festival.
