One of Australian cinema's most enduring and iconic films is coming to Sydney Theatre Company in musical form. The film's writer and director P.J. Hogan is back on board, teaming up with musicians Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall to transform the enduring story of Muriel's Wedding into a musical extravaganza. Audiences will also enjoy the immortal ABBA hits that were such highlights of the original film.
Stuck in a dead-end life in Porpoise Spit, Muriel dreams of the perfect wedding – the white dress, the church, the attention. Unfortunately, there’s one thing missing. A groom. Following her dreams to Sydney, Muriel ends up with everything she ever wanted – a man, a fortune and a million Twitter followers. That’s when things start to go really wrong.
This new adaptation brings the story into the present but keeps all the irreverence and naughtiness of the film along with its dark edge.
With a big cast and a live band, this world premiere will be the theatre event of the year.
