You cannot ignore the tick, tick… BOOMS!
The sound of one man’s mounting anxiety, (Swoosh) the beat of impending age and obscurity, (Swoosh). You cannot deny the vital pulse of a fabulous show, with a rock pop heart, presented by the dynamic, award winning Off The Leash Theatre Co, exploding onto a local stage near you, premiering this coming July (Boom!).
Before RENT, there was tick, tick…BOOM!, the story of Jon on the eve of his 30th Birthday, despairing and desperate, a talented composer, questioning life and his choices, indulging in a mid-life crisis, teetering on the brink of a Broadway Blockbuster.
You are invited to the Party, with three tremendous performers, fourteen fabulous songs and a brilliant local band (Boom!),
You are invited to relish the exciting, inspiring rock opera diary of the late great musical genius Jonathan Larson and experience the soundtrack to his life, just before the launch of RENT the show that changed the face of musical theatre forever.
You are invited to experience the tick, tick…Boom of a super talented troupe of three, directed by Michelle Theunissien Scott of professional acclaim both overseas and here in Australia. Musically directed by William Yates, a young up and coming conductor/MD originally from Ballarat who has also performed with the London Philharmonic Choir, Gondwana and the MSO Chorus.
