Laugh out loud with this musical comedy about four parents whose only common ground is the football field where their kids play Every Single Saturday.
Meet Neil, an aloof orchestra conductor, unaccustomed to the pressures of being a father to his estranged son; Sandy, a hard-driven working class fitness freak trying to avoid her struggles at home; Liz, a well-educated North Shore mum trying to rebuild her life as a single parent and the team’s coach, Carlo, an Italian soccer dad reliving his days as a former sports hero. Follow their sideline dramas as the junior team goes nowhere fast until Neil’s son, the talented Becks, arrives.
Featuring more than a dozen original songs, dazzling dancing, plenty of laughs and a few tears, this heart-warming, inspiring, poignant and romantic new Australian musical comedy celebrates the pain and the passion – the oranges and the lemons – of being a parent on the sidelines. After all, that’s where the real action is!
