Frankston City Council’s International Women’s Day 2020 Community Celebration is not to be missed.

The afternoon session features a performance of You Throw Like A Girl, this sketch comedy celebrates some of the game changing women in Australia’s history.

Did you know the first Australian on the cover of Time magazine was a girl? Or that the first person to fly an airplane from Australia to South Africa was also…wait for it… a girl!?

Following their sell out shows at the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Jess Pratt, Darcy Dann and Grace Sabbatucci are bringing their show to Frankston.

The evening session will kick off with Nova Peris OAM sharing her story, from representing Australia at the Olympics in two different sports; hockey and athletics, to being the first Aboriginal woman elected into Federal Parliament.

Our MC for the evening is Joanna Hayter AO with Peta Murphy MP, Cr Sandra Mayer and Cr Quinn McCormack joining Nova Peris OAM for a panel discussion.  

The second performance of You Throw Like A Girl will then commence at 8pm.

Book your tickets today before they are all gone.
