"The story of KINKY BOOTS has a lovely subtext that not only makes you think, but connects on so many levels. I believe that as far as a piece of theatre goes, it has something to offer for everyone, from all walks of life.

Theatrical education programs are vital in ensuring our young people are exposed to quality theatre that inspires on two levels; as audience members wanting to be entertained and as future artists and producers themselves.

Being able to do this and have them exposed to exceptionally high quality productions at affordable prices is so important. I hope New South Wales students, like Victorian students, have an opportunity to experience this production, to be both thoroughly entertained, and to engage with the important issues it raises.”
