Ladies in Black – Nov 20th 2020 7:30pm




Ladies in Black is based on the 1993 novel The Women in Black by Madeleine St John.  It is a ‘coming of age’ musical set in 1959 in the department store “Goodes”.

A shy teenager joins the staff of the women’s clothing department. Each staff member is on the precipice of change – facing independence, working for a living and what it means to be a woman.

The Age described Ladies in Black as “probably the best Aussie musical since Priscilla went global.” It wrote “Tim Finn’s songs range from Broadway-inspired numbers to true blue ballads, from witty patter songs to shares of blues and jazz standards. They’re beautifully integrated with the dramatic action, and the comic lyrics are priceless.”
