About this project

WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT ? 

This brand new, spectacular, fun-filled family musical based on the story of Noah and the Ark is packed full of great original songs written by Doug Horley (Duggie Dug Dug) and Mark Read (from the band A1) and will be produced and directed by Saltmine Theatre Company.

"The songs are wonderfully witty and touching at the same time"                            (Ruthie Henshall multi-award winning star of Les Miserables, Cats, Miss Saigon and Chicago)

"Brilliant! Straight out of the Disney handbook of how to write great musical songs!" (Peter Martin CEO Spring Harvest)

Come on board and join Noah and his three sons as their incredible adventure unfolds, supported by amazing puppetry, dance and innovative scenery. 

With a witty, fun and engaging script that will entertain both adults and children, Noah - A Musical Adventure takes the audience on a musical journey guaranteed to provide laughter, smiles, and plenty of 'ooo's and 'ah's throughout.

WHY WE NEED YOUR FUNDING 

We've been extremely passionate about this project for some time now, putting countless unpaid hours into its development and we feel we have the makings of a fantastic standout show, but we really need funding to achieve the level of excellence and exciting puppetry and innovative sets that we would like to bring to our audiences.

THE TEAM - DOUG HORLEY / MARK READ / SALTMINE THEATRE 

Doug has released several albums and DVD’s and travels the UK and many other countries doing events for children and families in schools, holidays schemes and churches. Doug uses music and the art of puppetry to teach and to entertain.

Mark has collaborated with Doug for many years, both writing and performing on his albums.  

As a member of the successful pop band A1, Mark is no stranger to writing catchy songs and top hits.  

Mark has written, produced and performed for theatre stars including Lee Mead and International Pop artists such as Ronan Keating, Boyzone, Hayley Westenra, Michael Bolton and Robin Gibb.

Mark also has a great love of Disney music and has enjoyed bringing his admiration for those classic Disney songs and influences to the music of the Noah Musical Adventure.

Saltmine Theatre Company works throughout the UK in mainstream theatres, churches and schools performing professional theatre with a message. In 2013 they performed to over 84,000 people and this January have just finished a very successful national theatre tour (John Newton - Amazing Grace) to sell out audiences across the country. 
Their most recent visit to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival gained four star reviews including: "Charming and enjoyable entertainment for all the family ****" (Three Weeks, for A Long Road Home 2013). 

WHEN WILL IT ALL KICK OFF ? 

Noah-A Musical adventure is initially set to start with a UK tour in May 2014, but our aim is for this to go beyond the UK and travel on the International stage.

The show is suitable for all the family, School groups and anyone with a sense of fun.
