Starting at the Dunstan Playhouse, Adelaide Festival Centre from 4 May 2022, the cast of Friends: The Musical Parody’s 2022 Australian National Tour are well and truly in rehearsals. But whom will be playing the iconic roles of Chandler, Joey, Ross, Monica, Rachael, Phoebe and Gunther this time around? The producers of this production have just shared whom will be portraying whom.

musical theatre performer Annie Chiswell (Shrek, Mamma Mia!) has won the role of Monica, Belinda Jenkin (50 Shades! The Musical Parody, Top Gun the Musical) returns to the role of Phoebe, and Eleanor Macintyre (The Hello Girl, Sweet Charity) will be Rachel. WAPPA graduate Maverick Newman (The King and I, Spring Awakening) plays Chandler, Conor Putland (Once On This Island, Dogfight) will play Joey, and Tyran Stig (The Drowsy Chaperone, Little Shop of Horrors) returns after making his professional debut in the role of Ross. Outside the six main friends, Dom Hennequin (VioletThe 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) will play Gunther, while Callum O’Malley (The Wind in the Willows) and Lucinda Wilson (Grease) are the swings.

We couldn’t be more thrilled with this incredibly talented cast who will be bringing our favourite friends to life on stage

An unofficial parody musical, guests are invited to join their six favourite friends and their favourite cafe for “a night of unstoppable laughs with a new musical that lovingly lampoons the beloved NBC sitcom”, featuring highlights from the series as the 20-something pals navigate the laughs and pitfalls of work, life and love in 1990s Manhattan.

Friends! The Musical Parody will be directed by Dash Kruck, with choreography by Cameron Mitchell, set and costume design by Frances Hannaway, lighting design by Jason Glenwright and musical direction by Steven Kreamer.
