A new Australian musical comedy celebrating the wonderful world of grandparenting is set to tour.
The Grandparents Club will tour metro and regional venues throughout NSW, the ACT and Victoria from May 31-August 4.
The musical boats a hilarious script by Aussie comedy legend Wendy Harmer with music by John Field.
Featuring a mix of stand-up, send-up and song, the musical takes place in the titular club's famous bar, café and spa with characters including club president and host Jimmy Bigelow and regulars Jeff, Liz and Maria.
Wendy said the show was all about upending stereotypes of grandparents baking scones and tinkering away in sheds to show them in a new light.
"Today's grandparents are adventurous, engaged and no longer 'invisible'," she said.
"They play a vital role in modern family life. But one thing never changes... the deep, abiding bond between loving grandparents and their adored grandies."
Performing the role of Liz, is Lynne McGranger - best known for her portrayal of Irene Roberts for more than 30 years on Home & Away.
Lynne said she is thrilled to be involved with the "wonderful new Australian musical comedy" which "celebrates grandparents in all their glory".
"I am so excited to be working with the doyenne of Australian comedy Wendy Harmer, the much-heralded director Luke Joslin and the exceptionally talented MD (musical director) John Field," she said.
The show also stars Laurence Coy, Meredith O'Reilly and Andrew James.
