Fresh from London’s Turbine Theatre, MTFestUK 2021 comes to Colchester, bringing you the very best in new musical theatre.
12-year-old Jimmy Jibbett would rather be a successful cartoonist than be in 7th grade. His father disapproves. His mother is busy. His uncle tries to understand but is too wrapped up trying to write a love song for his next flop musical. Where can Jimmy turn for inspiration and hope? Maybe THE MAN IN THE CEILING can lead him to his true destiny…If only Jimmy would look up!

A collaboration between Jules Feiffer, the Pulitzer-Prize-winning cartoonist and celebrated author, and Tony-nominated composer-lyricist Andrew Lippa, THE MAN IN THE CEILING is an uplifting tale about following your creative passion against all odds.

Music and Lyrics: Andrew Lippa
Book: Jules Feiffer

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.
