Have you seen the news? Sydney’s Belvoir Street Theatre company are petitioning Taylor Swift (or anyone who can get in touch with ‘her Royal Swiftiness‘, according to musicfeeds.com.au) to convince them to grant the rights to her pop anthem ‘Shake it Off’ in their production of Seventeen, which opens tomorrow night.
Seventeen is about a group of teenagers drinking, singing, dancing, gabbling, worrying and maybe even pashing their way through their last night of childhood and their first night of adulthood. And they are played by Australian theatre veterans Barry Otto, Peter Carroll, Maggie Dence, John Gaden, Genevieve Lemon and Anna Volska.

“Dear Tay Tay…”
All’s well that ends well – Taylor Swift eventually granted permission and opening night went ahead.
Ah, the power of social media!
