Thank You For Being A Friend

Thank You For Being A Friend web imageFrom the producers that brought Steel Magnolias, Gutenberg! The Musical! and The Hatpin to Australian audiences comes an hilarious offering straight from SOLD OUT performances in Sydney.

Thank You For Being A Friend is the ultimate Golden Girls experience with Dorothy, Sophia, Rose and Blanche delivering all the classic dialogue, razor sharp gags and taboo-breaking stories you’d expect. A wonderful introduction to the joy of the hit television series for first timers, it’ll have the uninitiated rolling in the aisles, while die-hard fans will fondly remember the brilliance of The Golden Girls!

Airing from 1985 to 1992, The Golden Girls centred on four older women sharing a home in Miami, Florida. It received critical acclaim and won several awards, including the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series twice. It also won three Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

The show dealt with many topical issues, such as coming out and same-sex marriage, aged care, homelessness, AIDS and discrimination against people with HIV. Complete with a replica of the infamous set from the TV series and “double-take” puppet design by Joey Creative, prepare for an evening of laughter, spectacular put-downs and familiar friends, as Miami’s four favourite girls reunite for this lovingly hilarious tribute show!
