‘DUSTY’ opens in Adelaide

Adelaide Festival Centre presents DUSTY The MusicalCalling all Adelaide musical theatre fans! Have you seen DUSTY The Musical since it opened last week at Festival Theatre? The production runs through 22 January and features an Adelaide native named Baylie Carson playing the young Dusty.

 

Starring Amy Lehpamer (The Sound of Music) as grown-up Dusty, Todd McKenney (The Boy From Oz) as her loyal hairdresser and longtime confidant Rodney, and Virginia Gay (Winners & Losers) as Peg, this new production is directed by award-winning director Jason Langley, conducted by Michael Tyack and choreographed by Michael Ralph.

 

DUSTY is the creation of Australian writers John-Michael Howson, David Mitchell and Melvyn Morrow. A decade since its Australia debut, it was time to fall in love with DUSTY all over again.

 

The musical follows the extraordinary story of the life and music of Dusty Springfield, one of pop music’s greatest female stars. For more than 50 years, Dusty’s music has reached out to all ages. Her legendary life is a riveting story of highs and lows and triumph and tragedy.

 

In the 1960’s, Dusty Springfield took the world by storm with her unique, sensual soul singing and a score of hits including I Only Want To Be With You, Wishin’ And Hopin’, The Look Of Love, You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me, I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself and Son Of A Preacher Man.

 

DUSTY features these hits and many more! It’s the story of the shy, young Londoner Mary O’Brien who transformed herself into the pop-icon Dusty Springfield, the legend who as the blonde with the beehive in the shimmering gowns came to symbolise the swinging 60’s.

 

“To me she was as good as Aretha Franklin…and completely timeless…she was the greatest,” said Sir Elton John on the original Dusty Springfield.

 

Adelaide Festival Centre’s CEO and Artistic Director Douglas Gautier said, “We’re pleased to be working with The Production Company and presenting DUSTY to kick off our 2017 season. With truly memorable songs and a stellar cast, the show is perfect summer entertainment and an ideal way to lead into our diverse and exciting 2017 program.”
