DAHLIN! IT’S THE JEANNE LITTLE SHOW

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED by KIERAN CARROLL
PERFORMED by CAROLINE FERGUSON
SOUND DESIGN by ADRIAN BLACK

Written and directed by award-winning Melbourne playwright, Kieran Carroll, DAHLIN! IT’S THE JEANNE LITTLE SHOW is a show in story and song dedicated to one of Australia’s most loved entertainers.

Gold Logie winner, Jeanne Little, rose to prominence in 1974 when she began regular appearances on the extremely popular The Mike Walsh Show. After becoming the most popular woman on Australian television in the mid-70s, Jeanne’s talents and career blossomed in numerous ways. From many other appearances on numerous TV shows, to starring in the hit musical Jerry Girls, to singing for Princess Diana and Prince Charles at the Sydney Opera House, to worldwide touring shows playing Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe.

Jeanne Little’s contribution to Australian entertainment is immeasurable.

DAHLIN! IT’S THE JEANNE LITTLE SHOW performed with great aplomb by Melbourne performer Caroline Ferguson moves seamlessly from story to song and back again. Jeanne’s humble beginnings raised by a single mum, her youthful years in London, her successful and loving marriage to interior designer, Barry Little, the many famous people she met along the way and her attempts to be both mother and TV star are all delightfully covered. The stories are wrapped in warmth, with Jeanne’s own brand of zany and irrepressible humour always present.

This high energy and fantastically funny show also has a wonderful batch of hit songs from many eras. Shirley Bassey, Marlene Dietrich, Anne Murray and Loretta Lynn and many others compliment the narratives and help tell the full story of an Australian icon who did things her way.

Jeanne Little found great success through hard work, perseverance and an irresistible love for life to take her honoured place in Australian entertainment history.

DAHLIN! IT’S THE JEANNE LITTLE SHOW is a fantastic show for all school children and teenagers. It will bring a smile, a laugh and joy to everyone and remind us all what hard work can do!
