Melbourne season extended for FRIENDS! THE MUSICAL PARODY

It was announced today that the hilarious New York and Las Vegas hit Friends! The Musical Parody has extended its Melbourne season by two weeks. Friends! The Musical Parody national tour will now play from 15 June until 4 July at Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre before touring to Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth.

During a short preview season on the Gold Coast in February, Friends fans were effusive in their praise on social media, saying:

“Hilarious, 5 stars! Highly recommend this musical” (Louise Watson); “My daughter and I had an amazing night! Would highly recommend everyone see it for themselves, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks again for bringing our favourite TV show to the theatre! We loved how much all the performers encapsulated the true essence of their characters!’ (Madonna Chapman); “It was a perfect parody and the songs were hilarious. Really well put together! Thanks for a great night!” (Felisimina Jom); and “It was such a great show!!! It was so creative, funny and not what I expected. The actors have done a great job recreating the characters and if you are a friends fan then you won’t want to miss this. Grab your tickets!” (Michelle Price).

Join your six favourite friends at their favourite café for a night of unstoppable laughs with a new musical that lovingly lampoons the beloved NBC sitcom. Friends! The Musical Parody celebrates the misadventures of our favourite group of 20-something pals as they navigate the pitfalls of work, life and love in 1990s Manhattan.

It’s a seemingly typical day in New York coffee shop, Central Perk, until an unexpected runaway bride enters the picture and kicks the whole gang out of second gear!

Follow Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey and Phoebe as they navigate life and friendship, all the while reliving favourite moments from the smash hit TV show. Friends! The Musical Parody plucks the best moments from the show’s decade long run and recreates the moments through an uncensored, fast-paced, music-filled romp.

Friends! The Musical Parody is directed by Dash Kruck, with choreography by Cameron Mitchell, set and costume design by Frances Hannaway, lighting design by Jason Glenwright and musical direction by Steven Kreamer.

We know this news will make your day, your month or even your year! Friends! The Musical Parody will not only keep you laughing but will tug at the heart strings drawing audiences into stories we know and love.
