Live On Stage
Sydney Theatre Company and Global Creatures present the world premiere of “Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical”, exclusive to Sydney. PJ Hogan, who wrote the original hit film, has updated his masterpiece into a dazzling musical show. Follow Muriel, a dissatisfied woman stuck in a dead-end life, as she dreams of her perfect wedding. She’s got everything planned out—her dress, the church—all that’s missing is the groom. When she chases her dream to Sydney, Muriel winds up with everything she hoped for: a man, money and social media fame … but then things start going wrong. With original music and lyrics by Kate Miller-heidke and Keir Nuttall alongside beloved ABBA tracks, and stunning costumes from designer Gabriela Tylesova, “Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical” is a theatrical delight for the eyes and ears. It stars Maggie Mckenna as Muriel and Madeleine Jones as Muriel’s “fierce, fearless and fun” best friend Rhonda.
