First Date

16th to 24th June, 2017
The Arcadians' Miner's Lamp Theatre

When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner.

As the date unfolds in real time, the couple quickly finds that they are not alone on this unpredictable evening. In a delightful and unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron’s inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines.

Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the cheque arrives?

First Date should be the first show you see this season.”

“Sassy, madcap fun.”

“This is one first date you don’t want to end! Fun and very funny by a pair of boffo lead performances that make a perfect match in Broadway’s newest musical.”


“A winning crowd-pleaser delivered with comic verve and charm.”
