Muriel Heslop is back! And this time she’s singing.
For Muriel’s Wedding The Musical, original writer-director PJ Hogan has updated his own screenplay to today, creating a stage show with all the irreverence, naughtiness and dark edge of the film. The new show features original music by award-winning singer-songwriters Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall, alongside those fabulous ABBA numbers.
The dream theatre director/designer team of Simon Phillips and Gabriela Tylesova (Love Never Dies, Ladies in Black and STC’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Dead) lead a stellar creative team.
Stuck in a dead-end life in Porpoise Spit, Muriel dreams of the perfect wedding – the white dress, the church, the attention. Unfortunately, there’s one thing missing. A groom. Following her dreams to Sydney, Muriel ends up with everything she ever wanted – a man, a fortune and a million Twitter followers. That’s when things start to go really wrong.
An exhaustive casting process is now underway for what promises to be STC’s biggest show in years.
General Tickets go on sale at 9.00am on Monday 13 March 2017 via www.sydneytheatre.com.au STC Box Office: 02 9250 1700 or in person
