After sold-out seasons across Queensland, Rachel Terry and Roz Pappalardo (women in docs, Soldiers Wife and Lontano), are set to bring their uplifting, epic adventure to The Boboli at Garden of Unearthly Delights.
A 60-minute, jam-packed show featuring Rachel and her real- life daughter, Scarlet Terry, who time travel to tell the story of the power of the arts solving life’s problems, with Roz Pappalardo as your favourite radio DJ “Neon”, All Fired Up is set to inspire, excite and literally have you singing and dancing in your seats.
Roz says the show for all ages is a whole lot of fun and a bucket load of nostalgia for those of a certain age.
“Those of you who remember the 80s with some heartwarming nostalgia will love the show, as will anyone who loves a good 80s tune and a dance. It’s fit for the whole family,” she says. “You’re going to love finding your ‘Choose life’ t-shirt, donning all the fluoro you can find, and getting amidst a bit of Footloose action.”
Who doesn’t love an 80s mixed tape? No one. And maybe a trip back in time and a chat with 15 year old you might really help a mid life crisis. All Fired Up is solving the problems of your world, one 80s song at a time.
And the team is stellar, with a full band and a cast that is so tight-knit they’re actually family, the show is set to be a lesson in friendship and fun.
“Rachel Terry (our co-writer and co-producer), and Scarlett Terry are the mother and daughter team in real life who bring the Back to the Future feel to the show,” Roz says.
“I play the radio DJ, weaving the songs through the narrative, while fronting a live, four piece band. Our musicians are Tnee Dyer (keys), Scott French (guitar), Cameron Nicholls (drums) and Patrick Savina (bass) come from almost all of the four ‘corners’ of Australia and have rehearsed for this show on Zoom. They are radio soundtrack of the show, dressed in appropriate 80s attire, and isn’t it fun to dress up a formerly ‘cool’ rock band?”
Wanting to sing, dance, or just sit back and enjoy a night of live music and old favourites, All Fired Up has it all.
“The show carries the soundtrack to generations and beyond, and is a heartwarming kick for those who really just need the inspiration to follow their dreams, whatever that may be. And, in two pivotal moments of the show, it engages local women who’ve always wanted to dance on stage in a professional production, but never quite gave themselves the chance, which leads the show to its climax,” Roz says.
