Rasputin Rocks is a brand new comedy rock musical with script and lyrics by Andrew Hobbs and music by Alistair Smith.

We created this show for one reason only: to entertain. With all the doom and gloom around us we could all use a little cheering up, and that's what we're here for.

The London premiere production of the show is going to be running at the Stockwell Playhouse from 14th November to 10th December. We need your help so we can raise money to release a cast recording album featuring all of the original songs from the show in all its rockin' glory.

If you can get involved and help support this independent original British comedy rock musical, then not only will you be getting an awesome album and a great night out, but you'll also be helping to bring the show to the stage and for those who want to help more we've got some really exciting limited offers to make you a part of this production.

The show is a fun, quirky and completely original musical in the spirit of shows like The Rocky Horror Show, The Book Of Mormon and Jerry Springer The Opera. It was written to appeal to fans of hard rock and heavy metal music as well as those who enjoy modern alternative musical theatre.

Set in the near future, it features an insane Russian emperor who's been diagnosed with a terminal illness and decides to take the whole world with him in a global nuclear armageddon. He has also discovered that the legendary mad monk Rasputin has never in fact died. After Rasputin's would be assassins failed to kill him, they instead froze him in a vast underground icy prison, which the Emperor has now located and released him from to aid him in his evil plan. Only hero of the free world Tony Blair and a ragtag group of revolutionaries obsessed with the cheesier aspects of Western culture stand between them and the end of the world.

All this happens to a soundtrack of classic rock, with a little doo-wop, country, funk, pop, Russian death metal and of course some good old fashioned musical theatre all thrown in for good measure.

This show is unlike anything you have ever seen before and is guaranteed to leave you with a massive smile on your face.

Please pledge to our Kickstarter to get yourself some awesome exclusives and help Rasputin to rock!

Risks and challenges

The album is already recorded so we can definitely deliver downloads on completion of the campaign. The production of the CDs is reliant on our crowdfunding the manufacturing costs and then on the supplier delivering within the agreed timeframe. We have a quality supplier recommended by the producer of the album so do not anticipate there being a problem subject to circumstances outside of both parties' control.

The venue for the show is booked and confirmed and the production is being delivered by a team of experienced theatre professionals.

Some of the actors from our previous workshop are unavailable for this run so we will be recasting certain roles which will be an exciting challenge.

As with any independent artistic production there are some risks such as cast and band member illness and of course the ever present threat of current economic conditions affecting suppliers. We have worked hard to mitigate these challenges and we know that our experience, the months and years of planning and preparation and the amazing enthusiasm of our supporters will go a long way to ensuring a rockin' show with some awesome extras.
