Geogry Girl the Seekers Musical

 

Georgy Girl the Seekers Musical at theatregold.com

Judith Durham, a shy, insecure, overweight teenager with a golden voice joins a folk group, The Seekers: Athol Guy the wheeler-dealer, Bruce Woodley the aspiring songwriter and Keith Potger the cool guitarist. After finding success locally, they travel to Britain, where thanks to Athol’s marketing skills, they get a foot in the door and, despite knockbacks, soon burst on to the international Pop Scene.

Judith, unprepared for stardom, struggles with what she sees as her weight problem, finds love, and tries to figure out what her future should be. The Boys just enjoy the party while musically delivering the goods. As Ron demonstrates, there’s laughter and tears, highs and lows. Keith marries, Bruce becomes a hit songwriter, Judith has her heart broken and Athol takes all in his stride.

Four years on the group breaks up when Judith decides to resume her solo career – and meets and marries the love of her life. 25 years later, in an emotional reunion, The Seekers set off on their Silver Jubilee tour. A staggering success, it turns out to be one of many. But their Golden Jubilee tour – despite a near-death setback – was destined to be the biggest success of them all.
