Gerry Connolly is a familiar and much-loved face in Australia. Perhaps his most loved performance has been his inhabitation of Queen Elizabeth II. Over four decades, his loving (and uncanny) representation of her, full of dry wit and surprising ingenuity, has become an Australian icon. Come see what QE2 really thinks about Harry and the rest of the entourage in this new show written by Gerry Connolly and Nick Coyle (The Feather in the Web).

As the Queen nears the end of her reign, this show explores her history, her hidden personality, and the weird sense of intimacy that has developed for Gerry over decades of walking in the shoes of The Monarch. Supported by comic triple-threats Rob Mallett (Aladdin) and Laura Murphy (Cry-Baby), this brand new musical comedy will be a hilarious night out.

Directed by Hayes favourite Shaun Rennie (Only Heaven Knows) and with new music by Max Lambert (Miracle City), expect the unexpected in a show that delivers what the Royal Family isn’t known for: gags, show tunes, and dancing.
