I was lucky enough to head off to see Once Musical opening night over the weekend which has started playing in Melbourne.
I took along Nic and was so excited to see this acclaimed performance especially as two Geelong girls I have the privileged of working with (albeit a long time ago!) in this incredible show.
It only took seconds to see why this musical has won incredible awards and traveled the world. It is running until December here in Melbourne and I really encourage you to go along and check it out. The humor, the music, the performers all blew my mind and captured me into the experience. What made me love the musical even more was that the cast played all the music. Each character had an instrument they played as they danced and sang on stage; proving just how talented these really were.
Once is set in modern-day Dublin and is about a Guy wanting to give up his music when a Girl comes along and inspires him to dream again. Tom Parsons and Madeline Jones played the leads and their voices worked so well together.
As mentioned I have met two of the performers who are originally from Geelong; Amy Lehpamer and Lisa Hanley. Amy played Reza and did such a wonderful job of having a Czech accent and playing the violin while making the audience laugh. While I didn’t get to see Lisa perform (she is the understudy for Girl) I know she too would be incredible and blow the audience away with her talent!
As it was opening night I wanted to wear something that was fun and luckily enough the weather was beautiful!
I love this skirt and I think one of my favourite things about it is the pockets!
I am also still loving these mules which are so comfortable! I was happy with how my outfit came together!
And thanks to watching a video on Redcliff Style’s blog I was able to get great curls in my hair, which I have tried to do for years now!! ! So thank you Rachel for your wonderful tips!!
What do you think of my outfit?
