Sydney's love affair with five-star hit Muriel's Wedding the Musical continues, but its not the only major musical this month. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical is thrilling audiences at the Sydney Lyric and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical version of The Wizard of Oz lands just before the end of the month.

And if you're looking for a musical theatre experience that's a little more intimate and a lot grungier, High Fidelity is at the Hayes.

There's plenty of homegrown shows in our indie theatres, including Night Slows Down and Virgins and Cowboys. Chekhov's Three Sisters continues at Sydney Theatre Company and British master of comedy Alan Ayckbourn's Taking Steps wraps up at Ensemble.
