Winner of Best New Australian Work at 2017 Helpmann Awards, Ladies in Black will tour nationally in 2017 after its successful debut season in Brisbane this year by Queensland Theatre Company. This home-grown musical will play a strictly limited 3-week season as part of the Sydney Festival before touring the eastern states.
It has also been announced that one of Australia’s most acclaimed stars of the stage and screen, the multi-award winning actor Trisha Noble, will join the cast for the national tour. Trisha will play the dual roles of Miss Jacobs and Mrs Crown.
In conjunction with Sydney Festival and the Lyric Theatre, the smash hit musical Ladies in Black will open in Sydney on 3 January 2017 for its premiere season in the city in which the story is based. The stylish story of fashion, friendship and 1950s Australia is based on an adaptation of Madeleine St John’s 1993 novel, The Women in Black, and features 20 original songs written by legendary singer songwriter Tim Finn OBE (Split Enz, Crowded House) as well as 30 custom-designed suits and dresses. This uniquely Australian musical has been brought to life on the stage by Australian screenwriter Carolyn Burns and internationally-acclaimed director Simon Phillips (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Love Never Dies).
Cast includes: Natalie Gamsu, Bobby Fox, Kathryn McIntyre, Carita Farrer Spencer, Greg Stone, Kate Cole, Madeleine Jones, Ellen Simpson, Sarah Morrison as Lisa, and now Trisha Noble.
Ladies in Black is a magical modern-day fairytale set in a stylish department store – F.G. Goode – in Sydney- a city on the cusp of becoming cosmopolitan. Donning a distinguished black dress, the bright-eyed, bookish school leaver Lisa is about to join the ranks on the sales floor of the city’s most prestigious department. In that summer of innocence, a world of possibilities opens up as she befriends the unlucky Fay and the frustrated Patty; and the exotic, compelling European refugee, Magda, mysterious mistress of the model gowns, who takes Lisa under her wing. From the Christmas rush to the chaos of the sales, these women stand shoulder to padded shoulder and together learn lessons in life, love and longing .
DanceLife has a double pass to the performance of Ladies in Black on Thursday 5th January at Sydney Lyric Theatre at 8pm. To enter please send in your name and number to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Ladies in Black Tickets’. Entries close 2nd December.
