Introducing ‘Call Girl The Musical’ by Tracy Harvey – a brand new Australian production set in a call centre. This show is an absolute must see for anyone who’s ever had a job!

NEWS!! ‘Call Girl the Musical’ is pleased to announce one of Australia’s finest performers, Alan Fletcher (Dr Karl – Neighbours Channel 10) performing in the lead male role as super salesman, Frank.

His female counterpart – compulsive volunteer and do-gooder Jean Brown will be played by Tracy Harvey, co-producer and writer.

Tracy says ‘Customer contact centres are the factories of the future – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s not necessarily a good thing, either!” And she speaks from experience. ‘Call Girl The Musical’ was conceived during a 6 week stint in a St Kilda Rd call centre. Tracy was compelled to take notes in between making calls and hasty trips to the Tea Room and those notes eventuated into this tuneful, compelling and hilarious new Australian musical.

‘Call Girl The Musical’ features the voices of Bert Newton and Steve Vizard with a talented ensemble of local actors and is funded by the City of Port Phillip Cultural Development Fund.

‘Call Girl the Musical’ has 23 original songs penned by Harvey, arranged by Jack Howard – (Hunters & Collectors) and performed by the entire singing and dancing cast with the Elwood Dads’ Band & Friends.

‘Call Girl The Musical’ was developed under the watchful eye of local script editor, Doug MacLeod of ‘Kath & Kim.’ It will be directed by dynamic young media producer, Bryce Ives.

A special preview season will run at the Phoenix Theatre in Elwood 23 – 31 October.
