THE BLUE KOALA - A real british comedy.

The year is 1972 and the International Women’s club has arranged an event to be held at the boulevard theatre to raise funds to save the endangered koala. Their mission is to display their commitment to the Queen Mother who has agreed to attend the event and be patron of this cause.

What follows is a roller coaster ride of excitement, the ladies passion spilling into many areas, this, mixed with some bad luck, some outrageous guests and even more outrageous ideas to save the Koala, all contribute to making this show into an excitingly unforgettable event.

A modern, fresh comedy with a large cast, some singing and the enviable charm of some very special women.
