CONNECTED - The Australian Rock Musical

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Musical Theatre
SA Premiere
Platform commissions a new work bi-annually, penned by artists in the Academy and assisted by mentors. Student are taught production skills like song-writing, script-writing, producing, marketing, set design & construction, make-up, hair, and costume. Every other year, we produce an already established musical.
CONNECTED the Australian Rock Musical is a professional rock musical which centres around four teenagers and their friends, caught in a situation they can't control, as they find their online lives have real-world consequences. CONNECTED demonstrates how easily cyber activities can get out of hand and illuminates the potentially disastrous consequences. The students' attention is held by an energetic, fast-paced narrative and an edgy contemporary musical soundtrack
