Kinky Boots Childrens Casting Materials

KINKY BOOTS is Broadway’s huge-hearted, high-heeled hit and it’s coming to Brisbane!

With songs by Grammy® and Tony® winning pop icon CYNDI LAUPER, this joyous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind.

Inspired by true events, KINKY BOOTS takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

With direction and choreography by two-time Tony® Award-winner JERRY MITCHELL (Legally Blonde, Hairspray) and a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony® Award-winner HARVEY FIERSTEIN (La Cage Aux Folles), KINKY BOOTS is the winner of 6 Broadway Tony® Awards including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Choreography.
