The heartwarming all-Australian musical, adapted from Margaret Fulton's bestselling autobiography - "I Sang For My Supper".

Before Margaret Fulton burst into the nation’s kitchens in 1969 with her burnt orange crockpots and chunky stoneware serving dishes, encouraging housewives to try their hand at Nasi Goreng and Apricot Chicken, Australian food was bland, boring and British, or overly fussy, fancy and French!

With hundreds of recipes, step-by step instructions, hints, tips and full-colour pictures, The Margaret Fulton Cookbook was a huge success, and taught a generation of women how to make delicious, economical dishes for family and friends.  The era of the dinner party was born!  Armed with a fondue set, a pressure cooker and their new confidence, women transformed themselves from family cooks to elegant hostesses, serving Chicken Liver Pâté, Sweet and Sour Pork and Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding.

In 1983 Margaret was awarded an Order of Australia in recognition of her services to cookery, and in 2006 she was named by the National Trust as an Australian Living National Treasure.  In 2009 Margaret was named as one of the 25 Australians who have most changed the nation.  Sadly, Margaret Fulton passed away on July 24th 2019, aged 94 years. 

This delightful musical romp follows Margaret Fulton's journey from humble beginnings to super-stardom.

This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. 

"Genuinely funny, heart-warming theatre"
— The Age
"This musical brims with love and energy and is almost like chicken soup for the soul... a fun night out and a love letter to Australian ingenuity... every bit as tasty and kitsch as Fulton and her delectable, sweet treats."
— AU Review
"A joyous celebration of the life of a great Australian, and the country that grew up with her, Margaret Fulton The Musical is eighty minutes of delectable enjoyment, as lightly whipped and deliciously sweet as any of the pavlovas on display."
— Simon Parris
