MUSICAL: The Secret Singer (28 Aug - 9 Sep)


The Secret Singer by Joanna Weinberg
Produced by John Feitelson and Lawrence Jackson, in association with Darlinghurst Theatre Company 
Tuesday 28th August to Sunday 9th September

We all have music in us; but how do we set it free?

 Multi-award-winning darling of the Australian stage and screen, Genevieve Lemon and Kate Mannix star in the world premiere season of a joyful new musical play by Joanna Weinberg (Goddess, Pandora’s Bag, Lifeforce, The Piano Diaries).

The Secret Singer is the life-affirming story of a chance meeting that changes the life of two very different women.

It might just change yours.

Genevieve Lemon’s screen credits include The Piano and The Dressmaker as well as countless iconic TV roles. Her stage appearances - which are legion - include Death of a Salesman, Mousetrap and Billy Elliot, for which she won the Sydney Theatre Award, Helpmann Award and Green Room Award!

In The Secret Singer, she plays a disillusioned singing teacher whose life is turned around by an unusual pupil, played by Kate Mannix (It Shoulda Been You and The Biograph Girl on the West End). What starts as an exasperating relationship becomes transformative for both, as they discover that sometimes you need to lose yourself to find yourself…

The world premiere of this funny, surprising piece - full of wonderful songs - plays for a limited, two week season at Sydney’s Darlinghurst Theatre Company from 28 August.

Be charmed, be moved and discover your secret singer!
