Em Rusciano Takes 'The Try Hard' Tour Across The Country This December

Prepare to be drowned in the flood of fun, laughter and entertainment as the talented all-rounder and force of nature Em Rusciano takes her brand new show, The Try Hard Tour, on the road this December.

With ample amounts of glitter and side-splittingly hilarious true stories queued up, Australia’s favourite all-singing, all-dancing, all-emoting, leopard-print clad warrior will play shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart (with two consecutive performances), Melbourne, Newcastle and Townsville.

Seemingly, Em's hobby is to sell out theatres all over the country. This year alone, fifteen enormous shows completely sold out with fans and critics alike singing her praises:

"Had the crowd utterly spellbound" - Herald Sun

"Em Rusciano is an irrepressible force of nature." - Rip It Up

"Kitschy, gaudy perfection" - ArtsHub

"Hilarious!" - Theatre People

Just recently, netizens feasted on her announcement of the release of her upcoming memoir Try Hard - Tales From The Life Of a Needy Overachiever (out 1 November 2016 through Simon & Schuster Australia):

“Well, I bloody did it! I wrote a whole book by myself! Truth be told I didn’t think I could do this, there were times when I didn’t want to and times when I cried so hard I had snot coming out of my eyes – but I did. I’m so proud/terrified at this point in time I think my heart may burst in my chest. I’ve put all of my best words down in one spot. It’s called “Try Hard” because I do and I am one – always have been, always will be. It’s traditionally a putdown in Australia, I was called it relentlessly in high school; I thought perhaps I’d reclaim it and make it something good. I hope you like it, it’s the best thing I’ve ever made that isn’t alive. It will be out late October, I really hope you love it.” - Em Rusciano

Revolving around mayhem, stardom and motherhood, Em's funny, feisty and fabulous outlook into her roller coaster world is a laugh-out-loud, cry-out-loud balm for the soul...but the lawyers made her take a bunch of stuff out so she's bringing the soundtrack to her youth and the stuff she took out straight to you, live on stage! As usual, Em will be joined by her trusty sidekick Vincie (aka Dad).

Got a burning question you’ve always wanted to ask Em but had fumble fingers during Woiyne Toiyme? Raise it up during the 30-minute Q & A following all shows on the Try Hard Tour…and the lawyers don’t have a say in this bit either. Best be sure you’ve studied the book!

Catch Em Rusciano at her stripped-back, intimate and honest best and be ready to laugh, sing, cry and hear honest tales from her incredible life and learn the real names of the people she had to change to protect the guilty!
