1. AUDITIONS - FUNNY GIRL - The Musical

This ‘exhilarating’ musical celebrates the exuberant and elegant flavour of Broadway in the 1910s and 20s and features famous Ziegfeld Follies production numbers.

Funny Girl tells the real life story of beloved singer, actress and comedienne Fanny Brice’s rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to Broadway star, and her tempestuous relationship with gambler Nicky Arnstein.
A triumphant story of starry success, coupled with a bittersweet story of love.
Funny Girl is a musical theatre classic with a sensational score filled with show stoppers including; I’m the Greatest Star, People and Don’t Rain on my Parade.
• Funny Girl opened on Broadway in 1964 starring Barbra Streisand in the role of Fanny Brice, and ran for a total of 1,348 performances.
• A revival production of Funny Girl opened on London’s West End in 2017 to great critical acclaim starring Sheridan Smith. Thereafter toured extensively throughout the UK. Since opening, Funny Girl has won all the theatrical awards for Best 2017 Musical, Best, sets, costumes, direction and Best Actress in a Musical – Sheridan Smith.
