Kinky Boots heads for Brisbane


Winner of every major international Best Musical award, Kinky Boots features Tony and Grammy-winning songs by Cyndi Lauper, a book by Harvey Fierstein and direction and choreography by two-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell.

Kinky Boots takes audiences on a journey from a bankrupt shoe factory to the runways of Milan. Callum Francis and Toby Francis lead the company as Lola and Charlie, the fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos and the young man he inspires with an outrageous idea to revamp the family business.

Sydney-based singer, writer, producer, and musical theatre performer Toby Francis was most recently a member of the Australian music ensemble The Ten Tenors.

British star Callum Francis made his Australian debut directly from London, where he wowed audiences as the understudy Lola on the West End stage and performed in UK productions of The Lion King, Ghost and Miss Saigon.

The cast also includes Sophie Wright (Lauren), Joe Kosky (Don), Teagan Wouters (Nicola) and Nathan Carter (George), along with Blake Appelqvist, James Delisco Beeks, comedy veteran Glenn Butcher, Hilary Cole, Jessica Condon, Denise Devlin, Euan Doidge, Daniel Downing, Bronte Florian, Linden Furnell, Ryan Gonzalez, Samm Hagen, Anthony Harkin, Nicholas Kyriacou, Jenni Little, Liam Peel, Emma Powell, Matthew Predny, Eric Rasmussen, Mark Simpson, Mark Stefanoff and Mitchell Woodcock.

Kinky Boots is inspired by a true story and based on the 2005 British film starring Joel Edgerton. It opened on Broadway in April 2013 scooping six Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score Written for the Theatre, and a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album. The blockbuster hit opened in London’s West End in September 2015, winning three Olivier Awards including Best New Musical.
