Fabulous new show

Stars: Rhonda Burchmore and Lara Mulcahy.

If you love ABBA and think of yourself as a bit of a dancing queen then prepare yourself for ABBA-solutely Fabulous.

This hilarious new concert sees award winning entertainers Rhonda Burchmore and Lara Mulcahy reunite in their first live performance together since Mamma Mia.

Ms Burchmore was thrilled to be bringing the show to Greater Shepparton in August.

‘‘It is such a joyous show and brings me such joy to do it with one of my best friends,’’ she said.

ABBA-solutely Fabulous is about two girls growing up in the 1970s who are mad ABBA fans and desperately want to see them perform live.

Ms Burchmore said so many people were obsessed with ABBA when they toured Australia 40 years ago and they wanted to recreate that magic.

For Ms Burchmore and Ms Mulcahy, ABBA was an important part of their lives and while growing up they had crushes on band members Benny and Bjorn and dreamed about what it would be like to be Frida or Agnetha.

Ms Burchmore said the show was likely to appeal to many who, like themselves, loved songs such as Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, Take a Chance, Fernando and Ring Ring.

Many ABBA songs are now regarded as iconic and are often played at events and parties.

‘‘I think the songs are really well-written,’’ Ms Burchmore said.

‘‘For them to survive and still be loved 40 years later they must have done something right.’’

ABBA-solutely Fabulous will be held at Westside Performing Arts Centre, Echuca Rd in Mooroopna on Sunday, August 19, from 8pm to 10pm.

Tickets are $60 for adults, $55 for concession, $55 for a group of six or more, $54 for Riverlinks members and $49.50 for Riverlinks concession members. Tickets can be brought from the Riverlinks Box Office by phoning 58329511 or going to www.riverlinksvenues.com.au/whats-on/event-details/!/calendar/event/the-harbour-agency-presents-abbasolutely-fabulous
