Effie - The Virgin Bride

Australia's favourite megastar Effie is getting hitched in a brand new stage spectacular, performing in St KildaMelbourneBrisbane and Sydney.

Effie’s – the original Bacheloreffe – is gonna gain a husband and lose a cherry, all in one night. Effie – The Virgin Bride extravaganza awaits your RSVPs this summer, with heaps of music, dancing, multi-media and audience interaction like youse’ve never seen before. Frontier Touring is proud to present a very special evening with Australia’s favourite Greek virgin goddess, in what will be her biggest, most outlandish mega-tour production to date – visiting Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Sydney in February/March 2016.

This mother of all weddings will be a night you’ll never forget, so make sure you get your hairs done boofheads. After years spent searching for a soulmate and having to spend her own cash, Effie’s found love at last. Starring a surprise cast of several, be sure to book your seats asaps or you’ll be spewing badlys!

Adored by Aussie audiences, Effie is the creation of Mary Coustas, a Logie award-winning, AFI nominated writer and performer, who first came to our attention with Effie, a character written for the smash hit theatre production “Wogs Out Of Work”.

In 1993 Effie earned Coustas a Logie for Most Popular Comedy Personality. She landed a Top 20 single with her duet alongside comedy legend Norman Gunston, and toured the country in the record-breaking theatre shows “Wogs Out Of Work” and “Wog A Rama”. Her one woman shows are equally as acclaimed: “Waiting For Effie”, “Effie X-Posed”, and “A Date With Effie”. On TV screens we’ve loved Effie for two decades now, in “Acropolis Now”, “Effie Just Quietly” and “Greeks on The Roof”. In 2015 Effie even got a record deal, releasing Effie’s Classic 90s Hits.

Mary Coustas’ other achievements are many. She joined the cast of “Sylvia” for the Sydney Theatre Company – gaining high praise for portraying a dog on stage! – and appeared on TV screens in shows such as “Skirts”, “Wildside”, “Grass Roots” and “The Secret Life of Us” and recently “Rake 2”. Coustas received an AFI nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the drama Mull. Other film credits include Nirvana Street Murder (1988) and Hercules Returns (1993).

Most recently, Coustas’ book All I Know was published by Allen and Unwin in 2013. Sharing her story of a decade of IVF treatments, tragedy and motherhood at 49, Coustas touched the nation’s heart with her appearance on “60 Minutes”. Currently she is a regular on Channel 9’s “Today Show – The Grill”… and now Coustas is finally back in theatres, with her biggest stage show in decades!

Just listen to Effie: “The word ‘extravaganza’ doesn’t cover how Bigger than Ben Hers this is going to be.”
