The Seekers Star Judith Durham Is Glad Theatre Bosses Are Staging A Musical Charting The Band's Career As It Made Her Realise Her Parents Were "Heroes" Who Were Crucial To Her Success.
Georgy Girl - The Seekers Musical, which is based on the folk band's 50-year career, is due to open in Melbourne, Australia in December (15).
The new production was a trip down memory lane for lead singer Judith, and when looking back on her early years she realised her family showed the ultimate support by encouraging her to travel from Australia to the U.K. with the band on a trip that propelled them to fame.
Judith tells the Sydney Daily Telegraph, "The whole experience of the musical happening has helped me look back on my life and appreciate my parents' role and the fact I went to England and they said that I could go even though it was me and three boys - it's a miracle.
"They are the unsung heroes and my sister too, who said, 'Of course you should go' because one of us had to stay back because Mum wasn't well."
The musical is due to premiere on 15 December (15).
