Mettle, Moxie & Melody
Mettle, Moxie & Melody is musical theatre like you’ve never seen before. A beautiful web of intimate moments weaved together with powerful ballads, gutsy show tunes and poetry.
Three modern day damsels-in-distress discover their inner dragons in a musical traversing marriage, sexuality and careers.
Renae is a young mother who learns she can’t rely on her video-game addicted husband. Stella is an overqualified, underemployed phone sales worker who loves to write music. Evie has long concealed her sexuality but a budding romance creates tension with her conservative mother.
The book, music and lyrics were written by local Brisbane composer, Anina-Marie Warrener. Her work captures exaggerated true experiences and cuts to the core of the hearts of young women. This is a brave new musical theatre work that challenges the norms of the genre.
Join Stella, Renae and Evie on their journey as they discover that they are not damsels-in-distress but really dragons.
