MTFestUK – Tony!
Fresh from London’s Turbine Theatre, MTFestUK 2021 comes to Colchester, bringing you the very best in new musical theatre.
A reckless reappraisal of the life of former Bad Rumours frontman and Britain’s first pop Prime Minister Tony Blair.
The story of how one man went from peace-loving, long-haired hippy and would-be pop star to warmongering multimillionaire in just a couple of decades.
A hilarious tragedy of political intrigue, religion, power and romance that plays fast and loose with the facts, owing as much to Citizen Kane as it does to The Marx Brothers – Karl and Groucho.
Throw in a cast of larger-than-life characters – Cherie Blair, Princess Diana, John Prescott, Peter Mandelson, Alistair Campbell, Ossama Bin Laden, George W Bush, Saddam Hussein, Gordon Brown and of course that dodgy dossier.
All set to rockin’ tunes.
Book and Lyrics: Harry Hill and Steve Brown
Music: Steve Brown
Director: Peter Rowe
Musical Director: Sarah Travis
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.
