Audrey Hepburn & I : The Musical Journey So Far…

The overture gives the audience a taste of some of the songs to come. Overture includes the songs Hollywood Movie Stars, Toe The Line, Flaunt It Baby, Make the Most of What You’ve Got, I Want To Be Like Audrey Hepburn, Not A Day Goes By and Sadie’s Dance.

I Believe (In Pink) The Teaser
I believe (In Pink) opens with Liz O’Sullivan and Audrey Hepburn on Brighton Beach in Melbourne, Australia. The girls sing about the difficulties in being a woman in a man’s world. Performed here by Sam Morley and Katie Underwood.

Liz O’Sullivan from Glen Huntley Melbourne can’t decide if she wants to marry Len from Collingwood or not. Her family insist she be normal like everyone else, something Liz rejects. Liz cracks under the pressure of everyone telling what to think and feel…while her guardian angel Audrey Hepburn, who watches Liz’s every move, warns her to never trust a wild thing!

Liz O’Sullivan in an effort to get her father’s attention starts to change, copying everything she idolizes about Audrey Hepburn from her Hollywood films.

Liz O’Sullivan is forced to go to therapy by her father. Liz finds she likes her therapy sessions, and does her best to block out the constant chatter of Audrey Hepburn in her ear during the sessions. Liz confesses to Rod (her therapist who just happens to look like movie star Rock Hudson) she is having trouble finding a real man to trust. Audrey Hepburn argues that it is difficult to trust any man and marriage is like being put in a cage. Rod decides Liz must have multiple personalities and one of them is Audrey Hepburn.

Liz’s dad for the first time sees Liz for who she really is…He realises she’s an original and there is no one else like her in his life. He is stunned by the strong independent woman standing before him… and has even learnt to live with the voices in her head including Audrey Hepburn.

Liz packs up her life and prepares to leave Melbourne for a theatre job in Perth. Len from Collingwood meets her under the clocks at Flinders Street Station to express his love for her, telling her crazy or not, with or without Audrey Hepburn, she is going to be his girl one day.
