AussieTheatre has a double pass to giveaway to Ladies in Black at the Sydney Lyric Theatre, Sydney on Thursday 5 January at 8pm.
In conjunction with Sydney Festival and the Lyric Theatre, the smash hit and Helpmann-Award winning musical Ladies in Black produced by Queensland Theatre Company will open in Sydney on 3 January 2017 for its premiere season in the city in which the story is based.
Featuring 20 original songs written by legendary singer songwriter Tim Finn OBE (Split Enz, Crowded House), the story is based on an adaptation of Madeleine St John’s 1993 novel.
The world premiere of Ladies in Black, the stylish story of fashion, friendship and 1950s Australia took place in Brisbane in November 2015 and won the coveted Helpmann Award for Best New Australian Work and was nominated for another five awards.
Starring Bobby Fox, Sarah Morrison and Natalie Gamsu, 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.
Competition closes 19 December, 2016 at 6pm AEST. Winners will be contacted via email/phone.
