Celebrating the humour, the pathos and the colourful characters that inhabit our waiting rooms, GP the musical takes an ordinary day in an ordinary general practice and adds music and fun.
The writers, director and performers are all practising GPs, who take time out from their day jobs to sing and dance about their day jobs.
GP the Musical premiered at the National GPET Convention 2012 in Melbourne on the 4th September 2012 after a preview performance in Daylseford, Victoria on the 3rd September.
It received overwhelmingly positive responses from the general public and medical fraternity alike. The cast was keen to perform again.
The writers, Genevieve Yates and Gerard Ingham, expanded the show, adding new dialogue and two new songs, and set their sights on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF).
It had 5 sell-out shows at the 2013 MICF, at the Gasworks theatre, Albert Park, and received glowing reviews from both audience members and critics.
