We All Love FRIENDS – Friendsical is Coming!

Written by Miranda Larson, it’s set approximately around the time the first episode is set in (which was 22 September 1994!) and based on all the famous characters Rachel, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler, Monica, and Joey.

It seems only fitting that Friendsical will be at the Grand between 23rd to 28th September 2019 to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary.

What Can You Expect from Friendsical?

“When Ross’ wife leaves him for another woman, he fears he will never find love again.

“But then Rachel runs back into his life… will he end up with his one true love?”


A power cut, naked Thursdays, and a dinosaur convention – what more could you ask for?

One of the most popular and beloved TV shows, Friends has become a cult sitcom that many can quote by heart. If you love the show – and who doesn’t, really? – then this musical is for you.

It all starts when Ross has just split off from Carol, his ex-wife, and Rachel just left Barry at the altar. 

You can expect plenty of hilarious moments and songs like:

(He’s Her) Lobster!

Richard’s Moustache

You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?

While this isn’t quite the reunion fans were hoping for, you can at least look forward to this funny, musical parody.
