World premiere!

Long before we were introduced to the furrowed brow of Gordon Ramsay and the saccharine finger licking antics of Nigella Lawson, Margaret Fulton was teaching Australians how to cook.

From crispy potatoes with capsicum to her legendary pavlova, Margaret Fulton: Queen Of The Dessert will be a culinary food experience full of all the right ingredients to make a musical: romance, drama, money, sex, power and a spoonful of jam.

In 1943 she rented a modest flat in the bohemian district of the Rocks. With dreams of being a cabaret dancer, she found herself working in the Munitions Supply Laboratories X-raying nuts and bolts. Today, Fulton is recognised as a National Living Treasure and has become one of the biggest influences in awakening the palates of meat-and-three-veg eating Australians.

Written by comedy doyen Doug Macleod (Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, Midnite and The Clockwork Forest) and composer Yuri Worontschak (Eric Bana’s Love The Beast and Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell), Margaret Fulton: Queen of the Dessert is a singing, dancing and eating production that brings Australia’s best-loved recipes face to face with Melbourne audiences.

The matriarch of Australian cooking will be immortalised on stage by Amy Lehpamer. Amy’s theatre credits include
The Threepenny Opera, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Follies, Shane Warne The Musical and the hit Broadway musical Rock of Ages, receiving both Helpmann and Green Room Award nominations for the lead role.
