Connected - The Rock Musical
About this event
Bi-annually Platform commissions a new work penned by artists in the
Academy with mentors. Teaching students all the production skills like
song-writing, script-writing, producing, marketing, set design &
construction, make-up, hair, and costumes. The other year we produce an
already established musical.
'Connected - the Rock Musical' is this year's production. 'Connected' is a professional rock musical about four teenagers and their friends, caught in a situation they can't control, as their online lives have real-world consequences. 'Connected' demonstrates how easily cyber activities can get out of hand and illuminate the potentially disastrous consequences. The students' attention is held by an energetic, fast-paced narrative and an edgy contemporary musical soundtrack.
