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.
