An original musical created by Mr Tim Enterprises

This original musical was devised by program participants (aged 7-13 years) with Tim & Nathalie Bevitt from Mr. Tim Enterprises.
It has provided an artistic platform for young people to express their concerns and find solutions, confirming the directors’ strong belief that young people have important things to say, whilst realising Tim and Nathalie’s passion for giving children a voice.
Creative support by artists Daniel Streatfield, Chelsea Heaney, Hanna Hoyne and Ed Radclyffe, provided participants with skill development in costume design, drama, and set & props design.
Over three holiday intensives and on-going weekly sessions, the program introduced 20 local children to the many aspects of musical theatre making.
Each participant plays multiple characters in the production, sharing a story conveying their feelings of tyranny, loss of hope and displacement. The children have come up with many solutions and responses to their real-life challenges in this exploration of what recovery encompasses and means.
The production features 12 original songs written by the cast, with music composition and arrangements by Tim and Nathalie Bevitt, drums by Michael Knight and violin by Tim Wickham.
