Lola Montez - The Musical
Written in 1957, LOLA MONTEZ is the most commercially successful Australian musical with an original score of all time. Now, 60 years since its final performance, Lola is back!
Diadem Productions, together with Riverside Theatres, is thrilled to announce the 60th Anniversary Celebration Concert of this Australian musical masterpiece on Saturday 2 June 2018 as a one night only event. Tickets are available from riversideparramatta.com.au from March 28.
With original toe-tapping music by the late Peter Stannard, lyrics by Peter Benjamin and a book by Alan Burke, the musical tells the outrageous true story of the powerful femme fatale, Lola Montez, during her visit to the goldfields of Ballarat in 1854.
An all-star cast has been assembled to bring LOLA MONTEZ back to life. In the title role is the vivacious multiple award-winning Debora Krizak. Australian TV and radio icon, and Skyhook Red Symons returns to the stage to play the curmudgeonly, cynical editor of the Ballarat Gazette, Seekamp, while musical theatre veteran and West End star Peter Cousens, plays goldminer Smith. The role of Lola's manager Sam is being played by Scott Irwin.
LOLA MONTEZ also boasts a stellar creative team. Director, producer and founder of The Follies Company, Stephen Helper brings an abundance of experience after spending 40 years as a director/producer of musical shows from Broadway to Darwin and all points between. Choreographer Paul Mercurio is best known for his leading role in the worldwide hit film Strictly Ballroom and he was an acclaimed dancer and choreographer with Sydney Dance Company for a decade.
Now is the time to bring back this incredible, refreshed Australian musical, far too long confined to the dusty shelves of forgotten archives and give her a 60th Anniversary Party that will once again light up the stage and have audiences stomping and cheering!
