They’re Playing Our Song is one of Australia’s most loved musicals. Based on the real-life relationship of Hamlisch and Sager, the musical tells the story of a wisecracking composer who finds a new, offbeat lyricist. Featuring the musical numbers ‘Workin’ It Out’, ‘When You’re in My Arms’, and ‘They’re Playing Our Song’.

Last seen at the Theatre Royal Sydney in 1980, starring Jacki Weaver and John Waters.

Neglected Musicals is a theatre initiative dedicated to presenting musical theatre that has never (or rarely) been seen in Australia.  The musicals are presented with scripts in hand, and with piano accompaniment after only a day’s rehearsal.  There have been 25 Neglected Musicals presentation since 2010.
