Continuing their success in delivering forgotten musicals in a free-spirited manner, Neglected Musicals will present ME & MY GIRL at Hayes Theatre Co from Wednesday 25 October.
Directed by Trevor Ashley, this West End and Broadway hit of the 1980’s will be the first time the musical has been performed in Australia for over 20 years Winner of two Olivier Wards and three Tony’s, ME & MY GIRL is set the late 1930s and tells the story of an unapologetically unrefined cockney gentleman named Bill Snibson, who learns that he is the 14th heir to the Earl of Hareford. Featuring the popular musical numbers Lambeth Walk, Leaning on Lamppost and Me & My Girl.
“I adored Me and My Girl when I saw it in Sydney in the mid-nineties and it’s a thrill to re-introduce this delightful comedy to new audiences, and those who want a trip down memory lane alike. It’s got a wonderful score, fabulous gags, and we’ve assembled a top rate cast. A bright and breezy night at the theatre, it will have you in stitches and tapping your toes in equal measure,” said director Trevor Ashley.
Established in 2010, Neglected Musicals presents musical theatre that has never or rarely been seen in Australia. Presented with scripts in hand, and with piano accompaniment after only a day’s rehearsal.
“What a fantastic cast, I so pleased that we will be presenting this wonderful show and I can’t wait to see what Trevor Ashley can do with just one day,” said producer Michelle Guthrie.
