Theatretrain Derby

How to Make a Hero Show – The Royal Albert Hall, London

Event date: September 18th, 2016

On Sunday 24th September 2016, we are taking all of the students from Theatretrain Derby to perform at the Royal Albert Hall in London with 23 other Theatretrain centres.   Being part of the Theatretrain Family means we get to experience some of the most exciting and amazing theatres in London.  We are very excited about this opportunity.

This fast moving show explores the stories of the Ancient Greeks and unusually makes the 500 strong choir the Gods!

Zeus is not happy. He created humans but they turned out to be so self absorbed that he despairs of their bad behaviour. What he wants is a hero. Enter Ulysses   and a whole series of adventures tumble onto the stage, arena, choir and everywhere else.

The orchestra, led by Robert Hyman, embrace everything from Bolero to Iron Maiden, Bonnie Tyler to James Brown and Adele. The Script and Pharrell Williams and many more. The unusual staging creates many moments of theatrical magic.
