What a huge and brilliant weekend! We had a packed house for our Staged Reading, and it was a great success! The audience liked it, and the feedback they gave us was incredibly insightful and will be hugely useful for developing the show over the next two weeks.

As well as developing the work further before we start rehearsals again, we need to raise money for the show and bring it to life!
Please help us out and donate!

Some quotes from the feedback forms: 
"I would recommend this show to my friends and describe it to them exactly as it is billed - A Musical Epic"
"I thought the music was great throughout - especially the ensemble, who contribute so much to the show's ambiance"
