The Thunder Girls follows an Ď80s girl group
reuniting 30 years after greed, envy and egos tore
their friendship and the band apart. The play
focuses on what goes on during the night from hell
when lead singer Chrissie tries to reunite the
band she dumped.
They havenít spoken in decades Ö. Ever
wondered what goes on behind closed doors when
legendary bands meet up to discuss a reunion?
Whatís really going on behind the hugs and
kisses at those reunion press conferences?
THUNDER GIRLS were a successful Ď80s girl band
until lead singer, Chrissie, sensationally quit
the Band to pursue a solo career taking with her,
Rick, the Bandís manager. Chrissie broke
the Girl Code as Rick was also the boyfriend of
Band mate, Roxanne.
At the reunion dinner from hell, Chrissie tries to
reunite the band to salvage herself from
bankruptcy after being conned out of her fortune
by her toy boy husband. But is there a price which
can heal the wounds? Or maybe some friendships
never die, even if you want them to? 30 years
later, can lightning strike twice?
Coleen revealed her nerves ahead of her debut, admitting
it would be her first acting role. Iíve always had terrible stage fright and never had the
confidence to star in a play before but I feel I
can do Anita justice because I can draw on my
past to play her," Coleen explained. Iím
also incredibly inspired by the fact that this
play has created roles for women who are fabulous
over 50. I am nervous, but Anita was just too
delicious to turn down Ė I canít wait to play
