Trevor Ashley revives his annual Pantomime with "The Bodybag"

He's back, the Diamonds are for Trevor (Opera House), Liza (UK Tour) Les Mis and Jesus Christ Superstar headliner, none other than the incomparable Trevor Ashley!

Bringing his seasonal pantomime back to life with a very funny piss-take on the BodyGuard... he is joined on stage by a cast including the very cute Gus Murray.

Titled "Bodybag", Trevor's new show see's him in the lead role of "multi-award winning superstar Rachel Marinade" (not a US superstar, but a runner-up on Australian Idol)

"But after a spate of creepy 'fan mail' it's clear that Rachel needs protection. Not only that, after being charged in local court for holding a fake driver's license, she also needs transport," and that's from the show's press description!!! (Paulini lookout!)

"Enter ex-ASIO officer, and current Uber driver Tank Charmer (Gus Murray). It's not only his job to protect her –but to get her to her destination with five stars. Who knew they could fall in lust?"

Of course, with Trevor's panto's you know there is going to be a whole lot of frivolity, campness and controversy. So it's a night of theatre not to be missed.

The Bodybag runs at Sydney's Seymour Centre from December 6 to 16 making it the perfect Christmas gift. Hurry as tickets are selling fast.
