Check out this sneak peak from the auditions of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical in Australia.


The producers of Beautiful:  The Carole King Musical can’t wait to showcase their phenomenal Australian cast.  Check out this sneak peak from the auditions.  

Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was an ordinary girl with extraordinary talent. Her music would become the soundtrack to a generation.

She fought her way into the record industry as a teenager and sold her first hit, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, when she was just seventeen. By the time she was twenty, she was writing number ones for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll, including The Drifters, The Shirelles, Aretha Franklin and The Monkees.

But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her own voice and step into the spotlight.

BEAUTIFUL is the inspiring true story of King’s journey from school girl to superstar; from her relationship with husband and song-writing partner Gerry Goffin, their close friendship and playful rivalry with fellow song-writing duo Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, to her remarkable rise to stardom.

Along the way, she became one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history, with countless classics such as (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural WomanI Feel The Earth MoveTake Good Care of My BabyYou’ve Got a FriendSo Far AwayOne Fine DayIt’s Too LateTapestry and Locomotion.

Experience the soundtrack of a generation in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

Arrives into Sydney this September.  #beautifulInOz
