The University Musical Theatre Society is busy rehearsing ahead of its showcase next month, You Wish, in which a mysterious man hosts a radio competition in which the winner’s dream can become a reality.
All listeners have to do is send in a video of what they most desire; but for some, their desperation is their downfall and the audience witness the unexpected. With dreams ranging from whimsical wishes to deep, dark desires, some will do anything to win – but only one will come true…
The show explores themes of love, loss, friendship, betrayal, fame and fortune, including songs from Avenue Q, Chicago, Hamilton and many more. Bring your dreams and desires along to Colyer-Fergusson Hall on 1 and 2 December at 7.30pm…
Tickets: Full – £8 / Concessions – £5 available online here.
Please note: the show contains some strong language, references to abusive relationships and some representation of emotional abuse.
The University’s Musical Theatre Society returns to Colyer-Fergusson next week, with an epic showcase full of songs which explore the struggle between our need to be part of the pack and yet also to follow our dreams.
Follow The Leader is a collection of powerful and revealing songs that prove that the quest for power may not always run the safest path, explored in music from Hamilton, Kinky Boots, Chicago, RENT and others.
The cast have been hard at work in rehearsals over the course of the term, and the directors of the showcase, Antonia Kasoulidou and Rakel Svendsen, declare that the show promises to be an inspiring, ingenious and intoxicating piece which explores the conflict between the deep desire to follow the herd, and the yearning to break with tradition and risk becoming an outcast.
Find out if you have the herd instinct or are prepared to take risks on forging a new path, as Follow The Leader comes to Colyer-Fergusson Hall on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 December at 7.30pm; tickets available here.
