With the sold-out season at Roslyn Packer Theatre set to close this Saturday, Global Creatures has announced that Muriel’s Wedding The Musical will commence a return season at the Sydney Lyric from July 2019.
Muriel’s Wedding The Musical celebrated its world premiere in Sydney on 18 November 2017 as a co-production between Global Creatures and Sydney Theatre Company. The show has been a smash hit with the season completely sold out.
“We are excited to partner with Destination New South Wales to bring this new season of Muriel’s Wedding The Musical to Sydney in July 2019,” said Carmen Pavlovic, Global Creatures CEO. “The city has embraced this all-Australian musical and the audience response to the production has been nothing short of phenomenal.”
“I am also delighted to announce that the cast recording featuring the stunning music and lyrics of Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall released by Sony Music last week has debuted on the national ARIA chart at Number 17 and Number 6 on the Digital Chart. This is a testament to the music producing team and all involved in the making of this cast recording.”
Muriel’s Wedding The Musical is a theatrical version of PJ Hogan’s iconic hit film, updated to today by the writer himself with music and lyrics by Australian award winning songwriters Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall with additional songs by Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus and Stig Anderson written for ABBA.
The stellar creative team behind the critically acclaimed production is led by theatre director and designer team of Simon Phillips and Gabriela Tylesova, choreographer Andrew Hallsworth, lighting designer Trent Suidgeest, sound designer Michael Waters, musical supervisor Guy Simpson, musical director Isaac Hayward and video designer David Bergman.
Tickets to the return season of Muriel’s Wedding The Musical at the Sydney Lyric go on sale on Wednesday 20 February 2018. A waitlist for tickets is open now at: www.murielsweddingthemusical.com
