Following a hugely successful and sold-out, world premiere season in Sydney last year, Muriel’s Wedding The Musical will play a limited season at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne’s East End Theatre District from March 2019. This will be followed by a previously announced season return to Sydney in June.
The musical adapation of PJ Hogan’s hit film has been given a present day makeover and wowed audiences and critics alike during its premiere season. Muriel’s Wedding The Musical features new music and lyrics by Australian award winning songwriters Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall, as well as some ABBA favourites.
Muriel’s Wedding The Musical received five Helpmann Awards this year: Best Original Score (Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall), Best Music Direction, Best Costume Design, Best Sound Design and Best Choreography.
Casting details are yet to be announced.
