Information

Set in a world of fake news, party-gate, cancel culture and the curtailing of free speech, this is Animal Farm reimagined, with music that maintains the disarming folk tone of the original story mashed up with contemporary musical theatre. British Youth Music Theatre is the UK’s leading creator of new musicals. This show will bring together young performers and musicians from across the country and beyond to share a well-known fable, retold by the teenagers of today. Expect political pigs, singing horses, corrupt farmers and everyday workers pitted together in choreographed protests.

The novella of Animal Farm, by George Orwell, was originally used to look at Stalin’s brutal dictatorship built upon a personality cult and enforced by acts of terror, but rereading it today it’s not difficult to see similarities with life in the UK right now. BYMT’s young performers are passionate about telling epic stories through musical theatre and will be coming to the Hippodrome to stand up to the proposition that  “All animals are equal… but some animals are more equal than others.”
