South East Arts is excited to present an outrageous and fun-packed musical comedy show in Candelo on Friday, May 26.

Oh My God I've Been Kidnapped And I Hate What I’m Wearing is a hilarious all-singing, all-dancing little crowd pleaser.

It follows the story of Sugar, a 1960s showgirl with a broken heart, a smoking gun and a future in the clink, when things get bad…hilariously bad.

Sugar has a wardrobe that Elizabeth Taylor would want to marry. But her high-class threads are being unpicked by her two- timing user of a boyfriend. 

Betrayal, theft, humiliation, chest hairs in the soap and a hobbling cabaret career push her to the edge.

Set in a paperback Kings Cross and featuring a series of infamous Sydney night clubs and gambling dens, Oh My God I've Been Kidnapped is a big hearted comedy about a showgirl and her dramatic late night life.

“We are pleased to be touring this show from Drew Fairley and Kate Smith,” said Andrew Gray from South East Arts.

“Local audiences may remember Bangers and Mash and The No Chance in Hell Hotel – both fantastic shows from Fairley and Smith we toured through the region a few years ago”.

Parodying Hitchcock, cabaret torch song singers, pulp fiction horror and 1960s glamour, Oh My God I've Been Kidnapped and I Hate What I'm Wearing is a hilarious sequins and gaffer tape backstage comedy - with great songs and an ironic, yet hopeful, play with ‘the girl done wrong’ trope. 

Featuring all original songs and the well-loved chemistry between Smith and Fairley.

The Candelo show is part of a tour across the region by South East Arts.

South East Arts is the regional development organisation for arts and culture in the Bega Valley, Eurobodalla and Snowy Monaro.

It aims to bring quality performances to these regional audiences. 

Kidnapped is touring the South East thanks to a grant from Arts on Tour. Funds for this grant have been made available by Create NSW on behalf of the NSW Government. 

Kidnapped will be performed at the Candelo Town Hall at 8pm on Friday, May 26 in partnership with the Candelo Arts Society. Tickets to the two and a half hour show are $30 and $25 (concession and CAS members).
