STRAUSS, OFFENBACH, LEHÁR AND MORE
two weddings, one bride
Wednesday 13 November 2:30pm & 8pm
Riverside Theatres Parramatta
Corner Church and Market Streets, Parramatta NSW 2150
Set sail for French Morocco where the champagne flows, the clothes are fabulous and the music is never dull.
All of your favourite operetta waltzes, polkas and songs by Strauss, Offenbach, Lehár and Kálmán come together in this raucous musical comedy created by Robert Andrew Greene after some of the biggest names in operetta.
Some of Australia’s hottest young talents join musical theatre stalwarts John Bolton Wood and Geraldine Turner in this frivolous farce.
The fizzy, fast-moving plot gives the cast a chance to flaunt an array of gorgeous, colourful costumes by Priscilla’s Tim Chappel.
The governor is in a pickle.
Those bankers are so fickle!
He's stretched the state purse a little too far and his creditors will soon come a-knocking.
But twin daughters he's got, so he hatches a plot, which might save him from a royal bollocking!
A double wedding could save the day, but when pesky pirates get in the way, it's up to Giroflé to make things ok.
