Presented by: Tauranga Musical Theatre
A world premiere, Tauranga Musical Theatre is thrilled to be hosting the The Blues Brothers™ musical.
An original piece, written by Tauranga’s Liam Hagan and Gordon Gray-Lockhart, this musical has been three and a half years in the making and now, with the support of Judith Belushi-Pisano, this show is making its debut in April 2020.
Five years ago, SETI Project Scientists detected a faint signal from the outer reaches of space. Now, in a highly classified CIA operation, First Contact with extraterrestrial life is scheduled for 7:23pm, August 24th in the Dark Mountains of Global Region Echo. The President has intelligence that suggests the morale of American forces at the alien landing site is at an all-time low. POTUS believes that following five years of arduous preparation far from home, the appalling quality of entertainment at the region’s main base to be the core of the issue. His solution? He instructs the Joint Chiefs to find the only musical act that has a hope of raising moral, so saving the world and developing intergalactic relations.
Enter the Blues Brothers.
