Following a sold-out run at the Roslyn Packer Theatre, this acclaimed new musical will return to the stage in July 2019!
Muriel Heslop is back in this laugh-out-loud musical based on the iconic Australian film. Stuck in a dead-end life in Porpoise Spit, Muriel dreams of the perfect wedding. 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.
Adapted by the film’s original screenwriter and director PJ Hogan, with a score full of ABBA hits and addictive original songs by award-winning singer/songwriters Kate Miller Heidke and Keir Nuttall, this dazzling stage show brings Muriel’s story — its naughtiness, its irreverence, its irresistible edge — vividly into the present. Simon Phillips (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Dream Lover) directs this riotous production, with eye-popping sets and costumes from Gabriela Tylesova (Love Never Dies), an unforgettable ensemble of hilarious characters and a phenomenal live band. Don’t miss the hotly anticipated return of MURIEL’S WEDDING THE MUSICAL.
