Little Orphan Trashley

It’s been a long decade working hard for no money at The Sutherland Shire’s Orphanage for Talented Girls and it’s high time little orphan Fannie (Trevor Ashley) came out with the truth; she is not yet all woman.

To get her gender reassignment surgery she’ll have to seek the permission of her birth parents and escape the gin-soaked clutches of headmistress Miss Trannigan (Rhonda Burchmore).

Luckily Fannie meets acclaimed photographer and multimillionaire Daddy Warhorse (Gary Sweet), who promises to make her wish come true but not before surviving one of his famously arty photo shoots.

Little Orphan Trashley shakes up the classic pantomime and serves it with a twist. The show features panto-staples of audience participation, songs and parody; but the wickedly funny lines, cheap shots, and one rather frisky ex-sniffer dog (Rhys Bobridge) definitely make this show adults only (sorry little baby in the third row but cute outfit!).

The show has the right blend of humour, crudeness and social and political satire to keep the audience entertained and engaged from go to woe. There are a couple of Sydney references that could fly over heads but they’re later forgiven with some Melbourne-centric lines.

Fannie may well be the centre of attention but Burchmore’s impromptu tap dance just may have stolen the limelight. Those legs just won’t quit.

Little Orphan Trashley is playing at the Comedy Theatre from the July 4 to 14.
