Mountain District Music Society presents Funny Girl at the Karralyka Theatre, Mines Road, Ringwood East until Saturday 20th June.
Funny Girl is a semi-biographical musical based on the life and early career of Broadway film star Fanny Brice.
The story opens backstage at the New Amsterdam Theatre during the early 1920s, where Ziegfeld Follies star Fanny Brice waits the release of her husband, entrepreneur and gambler, Nick Arnstein, from prison.
This can only be described as a fabulous show with all the glitz and glamour of more expensive shows, performed admirably by the cast of MDMS and designed and directed by Tyler Hess who also costumed the production with lavish costumes the like of which you very rarely see in the suburbs.
Jaclyn DeVincentis( Fanny Brice) and Nick Arnstein (Daniel Mottau) were superb in their roles. Lindy Yeates (Mrs Brice), Liam Kilgour (Eddie Ryan), Dot Parker (Mrs Strakosh) and Phil Lambert (Florenz Ziegfeld) all gave excellent portrayals of their roles.
The whole Cast of this show needs to be applauded for their great performances.
Congratulations Tyler Hess for another great show.
Funny Girl, continues Thursday – Saturday until June 20th at 8pm, and a Matinee on Saturday 20th at 2pm.
