The Seekers musical ‘Georgy Girl’ will have its world premiere in the legendary band’s hometown Melbourne in December.

‘Georgy Girl – The Seekers Musical’ will tell the story of the worldwide rise to success of the iconic 60s band who after 50 years are still together will all four original members.

In a statement, the four members Judith Durham, Athol Guy, Keith Potger & Bruce Woodley collectively wrote, “We are absolutely delighted that the story and the music of the Seekers is being brought to the stage as a musical. The idea of a musical based on the story of our group was first raised over four years ago by someone very familiar to us – Patrick Edgeworth, the talented scriptwriter is Judith’s brother in-law, and knows our story well. He consulted with Graham Simpson, who has been part of our team for many years, and wrote Judith’s life story in his best-selling book ‘The Judith Durham Story – Colours of My Life’.

“In August 2014, Richard East and Dennis Smith asked us to be part of an invited industry audience at a workshop presentation of the musical. The response from the audience was amazing – a standing ovation. It was everything we could have wanted and more.

“We hope you will share and continue to enjoy our journey, as our story comes to life as a brand new Australian musical.”

‘Georgy Girl – The Seekers Musical’ will premiere in Melbourne at Her Majesty’s Theatre on Tuesday December 22.
