Drummer Queens is not a show one would expect when you think what the show could be. From the very start of the 80 minute show you are transported to a steampunk inspired world.
The show’s creator, composer and musical supervisor is Joe Accaria who with Nigel Turner-Carroll as creative direction and Peta Anderson as choreographer is an unique experience.
Drummer Queens consists of 8 main members and 2 swings: Georgia Anderson as Bey-B, Peta Anderson as Freedom, Stef Furnari as Rebel, Niki Johnson as Switch, Salina Myat as Zen, Lisa Purmodh as Sass, Claudia Wherry as Luna, Ned Wu as Cap, Sasha Liab Diniz and Astrid Holz.
The set is incredible and is used throughout the show with the girls interacting with it and moving pieces all over the stage. It was great to see the different kinds of drums as well as their different talents highlighted throughout the show. Drummer Queens really showcases the incredible female percussionists that we have in Australia which is amazing to witness especially at the moment.
The lighting really enhanced the experience and was used throughout the later part of the show really cleverly and to great effect. The costumes were unique to each person while keeping to the white, yellow and black colour scheme. It showed the collective but as well as the individual character they were embodying.
Overall I really loved Drummer Queens and it is a must see show!
Drummer Queens is playing at the Sydney Lyric Theatre until February 13
