the word. Executive Producer, Tim O’Connor, is delighted to announce a third and final show at

International Drag superstar singer and entertainer, Courtney Act (aka Shane Jenek) will take on
the role of Teen Angel – regarded as one of most fabulous roles in musical theatre.
Courtney Act first rose to national prominence when he was bumped out of Australian Idol as
Shane Jenek, but then re-auditioned as Courtney Act and raced through to the Semi Finals. She
then took off for the bright lights of the USA and landed on the international hit show, “RuPaul’s
Drag Race”. 2018 is a massive year for Courtney. Apart from starring as Teen Angel, Courtney
has been appointed Ambassador for the 2018 Adelaide Fringe as well as touring her own show
“Under the Covers”.
The Footy Show’s very own long-time larrikin Beau Ryan will showcase his zany humour and suit
up in the role of the cheesy DJ Vince Fontaine.
Beau Ryan is well known to Sydney audiences as the loveable larrikin on the NRL Footy Show,
but this is not his first venture onto the stage. In 2015 he starred in Bonnie Lithgow’s Aladdin,
which gave him a taste for the ‘live theatre’ experience.
Meghan O’Shea (Singing in the Rain) returns in the iconic role of star-crossed lover, Sandy and
making his debut in a lead role, Damon Wade as Danny. Lauren McKenna – who played Tracy
Turnblad in Hairspray – the Big Fat Arena Spectacular, will swap a can of hairspray for a Pink
Ladies jacket when she takes on the role of Jan. Also starring Chris Geoghegan as Kenickie,
Ruby Clark as Rizzo, Stacey de Waard as Frenchie and Emily Monsma as Marty alongside a
mass ensemble of over 500 young performers.
