Want some news that will make your day, week, month or year?

The ‘Friends! The Musical Parody’ has extended its season in Melbourne by two weeks.

The smash-hit production from New York and Las Vegas will now play from 15 June until 4 July at Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre before continuing its national tour to Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. 

Don’t miss your chance to join your six favourite besties at their favourite cafe for a night of unstoppable laughs. This new musical lovingly lampoons the beloved NBC sitcom. ‘Friends! The Musical Parody’ celebrates the misadventures of our favourite group of 20-something pals as they navigate the pitfalls of work, life and love in 1990s Manhattan. It’s a seemingly typical day in New York coffee shop, Central Perk until an unexpected runaway bride enters the picture and kicks the whole gang out of second gear!

 Follow Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey and Phoebe as they navigate life and friendship, all the while reliving favourite moments from the smash-hit TV show. ‘Friends! The Musical Parody’ plucks the best moments from the show’s decade long run and recreates the moments through an uncensored, fast-paced, music-filled romp.

‘Friends! The Musical Parody’ is directed by Dash Kruck, with choreography by Cameron Mitchell, set and costume design by Frances Hannaway, lighting design by Jason Glenwright and musical direction by Steven Kreamer.
