Rhinestone Rex & Miss Monica

A battle of the genres between classical and country takes centre stage in Ensemble Theatre’s romantic comedy by David Williamson, Rhinestone Rex and Miss Monica, on from 10th March to 29th April 2023.

In this timeless tale of opposites attract, Gold Logie-winner Georgie Parker and legend of Australian Theatre Glenn Hazeldine reprise their 2010 performances in this updated David Williamson social comedy.

Monica, a highly strung member of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, is forced to give up the violin because of her RSI. Left to mope around her Glebe apartment full of resentment and anger, renovating her kitchen seems like a good distraction.

Enter Gary, AKA Rhinestone Rex, the little known Tamworth country singer turned tradie turned DJ who has been tasked with the job. While they may be polar opposites with seemingly nothing in common, except a love of music, is there something deeper that ties them together?

Featuring beloved songs from the icons of classical and country music, including Dolly Parton, the Eagles and Bach, and directed by Ensemble Theatre’s Artistic Director Mark Kilmurry, Rhinestone Rex and Miss Monica is a melodic trip down memory lane.

This hilarious romance will have audiences roaring with laughter one moment and tugging at their heart strings the next.
