Muriel’s Wedding The Musical

Better than an ABBA song and terrible at the same time, Muriel’s Wedding is back with more music and more laughs.

One of Australia’s most iconic films, Muriel’s Wedding is a much-loved fixture of Aussie cinema. Now, fans are able to experience the joys – and lows – of Muriel Heslop in an entirely modern manner.

Starting on November 6 at Walsh Bay’s Sydney Theatre Company, Muriel’s Wedding The Musical brings all the characters back together in Porpoise Spit with a Millennial twist.

Still undateable, still unemployable, and definitely still unbeatable – Muriel is determined to leave behind both family and her old self and achieve the dream wedding she always wanted. She just has to find a man who will marry her.

Combining an original score along with everyone’s favourite ABBA hits from the original film, Muriel’s Wedding The Musical tapped the talents of the movie’s original writer-director PJ Hogan, who updated his screenplay into the dazzling new stage show, bringing keeping all the irreverence and naughtiness of the film along with its darker messages.

Taking of the titular role of Muriel is the incredible Maggie McKenna (daughter of actress and comedian Gina Riley of Kath and Kim) who will be joined by Ben Bennett as love interest Bryce and the wonderful Justine Clarke who plays the fragile yet stoic Betty Heslop, Muriel’s long-suffering mother.

 

 

Muriel’s Wedding the Musical will be playing at The Sydney Theatre Company in Walsh Bay from November 6. For more information, including ticketing, head to the official website.
