Episode 99: Dreaming Up A Song

VCA Music Theatre students have recently staged a wholly student-made production, titled Dreamsong.   The show takes a satirical look at a US-style evangelical mega-church in financial trouble after the GFC, which stages a second coming of Christ.  Jesus turns out to be something of a rock star!  

More information

With book and lyrics by Hugo Chiarella, score by Robert Tripolino and choreography by Sam Hooper, the students worked with Eddie Perfect and Music Theatre Co-ordinator Margot Fenley on dramaturgy, with direction by Michael Gurr.  

The student makers are hoping the production will have its next run on a bigger stage. 

Music Theatre is a specialisation in the Contemporary Music Program in the Faculty of the VCA and Music. More info: http://vca.unimelb.edu.au/areas_of_specialisation/music_theatre
