JERRY’S GIRLS PROGRAM

CELEBRATING JERRY HERMAN’S WONDERFUL MUSICALS & HIS LEADING LADIES

Created to showcase his leading ladies, this new staging of Jerry Herman’s JERRY’S GIRLS will feature the dazzling talents of twelve of Australia’s leading ladies including Rhonda Burchmore, Nancye Hayes, Silvie Paladino, Christie Whelan-Browne and Kirby Burgess. Herman’s hits in this musical feast include Hello, Dolly!, Bosom Buddies, Wherever He Ain’t, I Won’t Send Roses, The Best of Times and I Am What I Am. More than most songwriters, Jerry Herman has put the leading ladies of his shows centre stage – Dolly Levi in Hello, Dolly!, Auntie Mame in Mame, Mabel Normand in Mack and Mabel and female impersonator Zaza in La Cage Aux Folles. Jerry’s Girls affectionately celebrates Jerry Herman’s unique gift for writing songs that capture the true spirit of these extraordinary characters of musical theatre.

The dynamic duo Director Dean Bryant and Choreographer Andrew Hallsworth (Anything Goes, The Producers, and La Cage Aux Folles) together with Musical Director Mathew Frank are shaping this musical to be a unique celebration of Australia’s leading ladies.

REVIEWS

“A BRILLIANTLY LIVELY AND SCINTILLATING EVENING”

THE NEW YORK TIMES

★★★★½

“This Production Company version is the first professional revival in more than two decades and as a showcase of talented women in Australian musical theatre, it can’t be beaten… Director Dean Bryant has tweaked and elaborated the script into an irreverent, light comic romp that feels fresh and improvised, and has been neatly tailored to the offstage personas of each performer… There are too many highlights to name them all. The only shortcoming in this ridiculously entertaining show is its short, two-week season. Get your tickets quickly.”
