An iconic band whose music has entertained for over 50 years
From humble beginnings when Judith Durham, Athol Guy, Keith Potger and Bruce Woodley met in Melbourne, to taking the world by storm, Georgy Girl - The Seekers Musical follows the remarkable story of this legendary pop band and their meteoric rise from the 60's to today.

For over 50 years The Seekers' classic songs and 4 part harmonies have been enjoyed by generations of music lovers. They began singing folk and jazz together in a little coffee shop called the "Treble Clef" in Melbourne and went on to become the first Australian band to achieve international success.

Spotlighting Australia on the world music map, The Seekers had phenomenal success on the music charts in the UK and US. They were the first group to reach number one on the UK charts with their first three singles; I'll Never Find Another You, A World of Our Own, and The Carnival is Over, which outsold both The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
