UPDATE: February 1, 2022 — Theatre Royal Sydney is currently running a two-for-one offer on platinum or gold tickets for selected performances of Girl From the North Country. Check terms and conditions below for details.

Following multiple sell-out seasons since debuting in London in 2017, Girl From the North Country has become one of the most critically acclaimed productions of our generation.

Making its Australian premiere at the 2022 Sydney Festival, and kicking off from Wednesday, January 5 at the recently unveiled new Theatre Royal, Girl From the North Country takes place in a guesthouse in the US state of Minnesota in 1934. The story revolves around owner Nick, who is deeply in debt; his wife Elizabeth, whose mind is fraying; and their pregnant daughter Marianne — as well as a bible-slinging preacher and a boxer endeavouring to make a comeback.

For Bob Dylan fans, the name of this musical will be familiar. It's the title of one of the legendary folk singer's 1963 songs — a tune that features in this musical, naturally. Indeed, the entire show uses Dylan's tracks, including everything from 'Like a Rolling Stone' and 'Hurricane' to 'Slow Train' and 'I Want You', all weaved throughout a story of American life during the Great Depression.

The debut Aussie season will star Lisa McCune (The King and ISouth Pacific), Zahra Newman (The Book of MormonWentworth), Terence Crawford (Escape From Pretoria1984) and Helen Dallimore (WickedLegally Blonde).

Terms and Conditions: Offer subject to availability. Available for selected performances up to and including Sunday, February 13, 2022. Limit of two tickets per transaction. Transaction fees apply.
