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)

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.
