Chanteuse and musical comedy star, Queenie van de Zandt, finally brings her cult-character Jan van de Stool, back to the stage in this multi-award nominated satirical swipe at self-help.

Queenie has long been well known for her many leading roles in musical theatre such as Into the Woods, King Kong, and The Full Monty and for her heartbreaking performance of the Bearded Lady in the award-winning Smoke & Mirrors. And Jan van de Stool is no slouch either – coming to prominence for her The Voice Vlogs with van de Stool – a web series satirising The Voice in 2013 and with regular guest appearances at previous MICF's.


In I GET THE MUSIC IN YOU, an evening with Jan van de Stool, Jan flogs her courses, books and BBQ aprons with hilarious monotony, takes interpretive dancing to new heights, and finishes with a 'colonic irrigation of the spirit'. Being Dutch-Australian Jan's grip on the English language constantly comes unstuck, as does the evening, when insecurity about one of her student's extraordinary singing talent makes for an ending that leaves the audience floored and screaming for more.
