Australian Theatre For Young People (ATYP) is excited to present the world premiere of The Deb. The Deb marks the company’s first show in 4 years back at their newly renovated home at Pier 2/3 in the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct. 

The winner of the 2019 Rebel Wilson Comedy Commission, The Deb follows high school outcast and whimsical mega-dork Taylah, who longs to be the princess of her own fairy tale, which isn’t easy in Dunburn – a drought-stricken Aussie town struggling for survival, where cool girls and footy hunks lead the pack. 

When Taylah’s hyper-woke, inner-city cousin Maeve comes to stay, the pair join forces on a quest to make their mark on the best night of the year: the town’s annual Debutante Ball. In their search for social redemption and the spotlight, chaos ensues – along with a whole lot of fake tan, lace, and diamante tiaras. 

Conceived and co-directed by Hannah Reilly (ABC TV’s Growing Up Gracefully) with original music by multi-ARIA Award-winning Megan Washington, The Deb is a heart-warming and uproarious coming-of-age story about friendship, courage and learning to love who you are.
