If you’re a fan of Dolly Parton, then this just might be your happy place for the summer. Seriously Red is a rowdy and rambunctious musical dramedy, finding Red (Krew Boylan) at a crossroads in her life. A vivacious and hilarious red-haired woman grappling with high expectations and low self-esteem, she pours herself a cup of ambition and trades her 9-to-5 career in real estate for a life under the spotlight as a Dolly Parton impersonator. After misreading her work’s party dress code, Red tumbles out of bed into a new world of tribute artists and impersonators in a wild and messy journey that includes romancing a Kenny Rogers (Daniel Webber) impersonator. Red has to lose herself in order to find herself.
For locals in the Northern Rivers you might find that a few of the streets look familiar; some of the venues may have been on your last pub or theatre crawl and some of the voices are impersonated by some of the folk you have heard around the traps. Not naming names, but you’ll hear them if you listen carefully. You will even see Celeste Barber!
