Glorious! is the heartwarming musical comedy following the tale of the world’s worst opera singer. It’s the 1940s and the soprano everyone is dying to see perform is the enthusiastic Florence Foster Jenkins. The eccentric Jenkins surrounds herself with devoted friends of the same calibre while she ignores her critics and continues to screech and warble to her audiences — most bent over in laughter. Diana McLean ( The Young Doctors, All Saints) is Florence and Mitchell Roberts ( Blue Heelers, Tripping Over) is pianist Cosme McMoon. Riverside Theatre, corner of Market and Church streets, Parramatta. Opens Tuesday, 7.30pm. Tickets: $38-$52. Bookings: (02) 8839 3399 or online. Until September 9.
