At this special Sydney-exclusive event, Julie Andrews and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton will share personal stories and insights into their careers.

The ‘informal’ talk will take place on the re-created stage set of My Fair Lady, where the Andrews-directed 60th anniversary production will shortly premiere.

“It is a thrill for me to be in Australia and have the opportunity to direct the very musical that significantly launched my career,” said Andrews. “This unique opportunity of having my lovely Emma join me on stage for an open conversation with an audience prior to our opening warms my heart.”

Andrews and Walton Hamilton will engage the audience in an informal setting as they discuss Julie’s work as one of the world’s most loved performers and their work together as critically acclaimed best-selling authors and television creators and producers. Together they have published 30 books and created several television projects committed to stimulating a sense of wonder and learning in children.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with two of the entertainment industry’s most formidable women. (AM)
