A Friends musical parody is coming to Melbourne this year


Originally scheduled for last year, Friends! The Musical Parody is finally heading our way.

If it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year (and let’s be real, it really hasn’t), turn it all around by indulging in Friends! The Musical Parody which is making its way to our shores later this year.

Originally announced for a run of Aussie shows last year, the comedic, song-filled take on the 90s sitcom has been rescheduled and is making its way to Adelaide, Hobart, Wollongong, Parramatta, Canberra, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne in 2022, kicking off in May and running right through to December.

Check out Melbourne’s latest stage shows, stand-up comedy and theatrical events here.

The hilarious New York and Las Vegas hit will see your six favourite friends at their favourite cafe for a night of unstoppable laughs with a new musical that lovingly lampoons the beloved NBC sitcom.

Friends! The Musical Parody celebrates the misadventures of our favourite group of 20-something pals as they navigate the pitfalls of work-life and love in 1990s Manhattan. It’s a seemingly typical day in New York coffee shop Central Perk until an unexpected runaway bride enters the picture and kicks the whole gang out of second gear!

Follow Ross Rachel Chandler Monica Joey and Phoebe as they navigate life and friendship all the while reliving favourite moments from the smash-hit TV show. Friends! The Musical Parody plucks the best moments from the show’s decade long run and recreates the moments through an uncensored fast-paced music-filled romp.

Friends! The Musical Parody will not only keep you laughing but will tug at the heartstrings drawing audiences into stories we know and love.

The Melbourne run will go ahead at the Athenaeum Theatre from November 23 – December 17 2022. Tickets can be purchased here.
