The Intercollegiate Musical Society presents

First Date: The Musical

Music and Lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner; Book by Austin Winsberg

6 - 9 Jun 2018


Bringing together the best artistic talents from the University of Sydney colleges, the Intercollegiate Musical Society is proud to present “Broadway’s Musical Comedy” First Date.


When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds in real time, the couple quickly finds that they are not alone on this unpredictable evening. In a delightful and unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron’s inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?


Filled with hilarious musical numbers, crazy characters and outrageous, but entirely too relatable, moments, this is a show sure to be enjoyed by anyone who has ever ventured into the most dreaded human endeavour in existence: dating.
