Developing new shows with an important message, we aim to create musical theatre which excites, interests, and challenges our audiences, inspiring them to take action on important global issues. We're currently developing three exciting new musicals, which we’ve recently had the opportunity to perform across the UK, and we were fortunate enough to be able share these in The Theatre Cafe on London's West End in April. Our latest production, Dinner With Gatsby is a brand new 90-minute show which retells the classic novel The Great Gatsby from a new perspective, focussing on the struggles felt by those assigned female at birth and those identifying as LGBTQ+. This is a one-act musical where we see the events from the book and more unfold at a dinner party for Nick’s birthday, performed by a cast of 7 with a live jazz band accompaniment. We are crowdfunding for the research and development of this show and the staging of our first performances. The show is currently being written with the first draft due to be completed in August, and in September we’ll begin a 4 month workshop period with our cast. In January we’ll then begin rehearsals for the finished version of the show, which we’ll be performing in North Wales in February. Subject to funding, we then hope to continue performing this show all across the UK, spreading it’s important messages. In exchange for supporting us, you’ll have access to a wide variety of rewards associated with this production, including signed programmes and posters, free tickets, Q&As with the cast, and exclusive access to workshops, dress rehearsals, and more. Your support is invaluable as we work to produce this show. If you’d like to find out more, please visit our website and we’d be happy to answer any questions.
