THE THREEPENNY OPERA! Amanda To Play ‘Mrs Peachum’

Amanda Muggleton will be appearing in “The Threepenny Opera” for The Sydney Theatre Company from 1st September – 24th September 2011. In this major collaboration between Malthouse Melbourne and Victorian Opera, Richard Gill conducts an ensemble of 19 thieves, whores and tramps drawn from the hot and dangerous firmaments of opera, music theatre, cabaret and every dive in between. Heading up this debaucherous rabble will be the ever-fabulous Paul Capsis and Eddie Perfect.

A raucous comedy, bawdy musical and acerbic political satire, this production imperiously shoves aside the pretensions of modern world civility to revel in all that is corrupt and squirming beneath. Dare to imagine a Brechtian Underbelly with songs…

Cast: Johanna Allen, Paul Capsis, Jolyon James, Luke Joslin, Lucy Maunder, Amanda Muggleton, Eddie Perfect, Angela Scundi, Dimity Shepherd, Grant Smith and John Xintavelonis.

Duration: 2 hours and 40 minutes
