Boyle and Waters in LEOTARD

On tour in Western Queensland
Camp and ridiculous, joyous and incisive, powerfully feminist and surprisingly touching, it’s a true master-class in physical comedy and storytelling.
– Ads J, Nothing Ever Happens in Brisbane

A hilarious nostalgia-blaring homage to the humble leotard and its epic transformational possibilities.

Vintage leotards, glittering with sequins, Lycra in every colour of the rainbow. One by one, the performers pull on the Lycra and are transformed. Who were the women who wore these leotards? What were their secrets? And how many interpretive dance routines will there be?

Two of Australia’s most fearless physical comedians, Bridget Boyle and Neridah Waters, present this joyous celebration of performance, body-positivity and glitter.

... funny and surprisingly poignant ... Neridah Waters and Bridget Boyle made an unmatchable duo.
– Chloe Hutchins, Theatre Haus
... two of Australia’s finest physical comedians that had the audience in stitches from beginning to end. If you missed this debut season, make sure to bedazzle all your bits in anticipation of its return.

Do you remember the first time you “dressed up”? When you pulled on a piece of clothing – be it a leotard, a home-made Halloween costume, or your first formal frock/ suit and you felt it change you somehow? Made you perform yourself differently? Filled you with that joyful buzz of specialness that comes from knowing you look EXTRAORDINARY?

In LEOTARD we want you to all feel that awesomeness again! People from all over have been sharing stories and pictures of themselves taking their first steps on stage to be featured in the show. Check out Bridget and Neridah in their first leotards:
