Feeling Pretty is a story of women reclaiming their power. It is a musical commentary on the daily frustrations and the unnecessary yet inhibiting powerlessness felt by women throughout time. Written and directed by Ariella Barnett, choreographed by Ariella Barnett, Liné Koen and Amy Reed, and with musical direction by Liné Koen, this original production is unique in its style and in its collaborative nature.
Set in the recording studio of the fictitious Good Time Radio, the vibrant radio trio, Raquel, Belle and Michelle endure the chauvinism within our society with grace and gusto, and allow the audience to be immersed in their thought-provoking and vulnerable journey. Through the musicalization of jazz, pop and barbershop classics, the actors show their finesse when it comes to both collaboration and performance. Feeling Pretty uses music, dance and comedy to address a deeper message. This exciting and impactful production is sure to captivate your minds and have you dancing in your seats!
After an amazingly well received, sold-out run in 2021 at The Kalk Bay Theatre, Buttermoon Productions revamped and revitalised Feeling Pretty, and performed this popular production again in April 2022 to even more sold-out crowds at the SixtyNine Theatre, as seen in this virtual recording.
