About the musical

Produced in the West End in 1973, this iconic musical was written by Tim Rice while its music was composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber. This was the first Lloyd Webber and Rice musical to be performed publicly, creating immense excitement in the theatre world (‘The Likes of Us’, written in 1965, was not performed until 2005). The musical in its full format was recorded in 1974 and went to Broadway in 1982.  After several major revivals and national tours, a 1999 straight-to-video film, starring Donny Osmond, followed.

Its family-friendly story, familiar topics throughout and the catchy soundtrack have resulted in countless performances. By 2008 more than 20,000 schools and amateur theatre groups had staged productions of the show!

What to expect

This musical is the fourth consecutive one being produced by Teatru Astra, following the outstanding productions of 'Grease', 'Evita' and last year’s 'Jesus Christ Superstar'.
