Fresh from London’s Turbine Theatre, MTFestUK 2021 comes to Colchester, bringing you the very best in new musical theatre.

An Eco Rock Musical

“I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if our house is on fire. Because it is.” – Greta Thunberg 2019

A trio of endangered animals form a rock band to protest against the climate crisis. Leo, the snow leopard lead singer, rages against the annihilation of their world, Ginger the Orangutan, on keys, has her own tale to tell about the traumas of deforestation, while Alan the elephant is keeping time on the drums. But their newly rebranded group ‘HouseFire’ is under threat from their corporate manager getting them to pander to the very capitalist system they want to destabilize. Entering Britain’s Got Talent is a great way to reach more people with their message, but it puts a strain on their already fractious relationships, and is it all just too little too late… Fierce, frenetic and fun – this gig-theatre musical will set your world on fire.

Book & Lyrics: P Burton-Morgan who also directs

Music: Felix Hagan

Musical Director: Mark Collins

MTFestUK is a yearly festival that promotes the best in new musical theatre. The two week long festival allows eight new and emerging pieces of musical theatre to be presented in a workshop setting in front of a live audience. The presentations therefore are by no means complete and actors will use scripts, limited props etc. This is a deliberate choice to allow the writing team the opportunity to work on the material before projects move into full production.

The stream is available to watch on web browsers, Google Chromecast, Apple and Android TVs and Amazon Fire Stick. For full details on how to view can be found on TicketCo’s Information Page.

All streaming passes are sold subject to TicketCo’s Terms & Conditions.
