Animal Farm
  • UK Regional & Tours

Set in a world of fake news, party-gate, cancel culture and the curtailing of free speech, this is Animal Farm reimagined, with music that maintains the disarming folk tone of the original story mashed up with contemporary musical theatre. British Youth Music Theatre is the UKs leading creator of new musicals. This show will bring together young performers and musicians from across the country and beyond to share a well-known fable, retold by the teenagers of today. Expect political pigs, singing horses, corrupt farmers and everyday workers pitted together in choreographed protests.

The novella of Animal Farm, by George Orwell, was originally used to look at Stalins brutal dictatorship built upon a personality cult and enforced by acts of terror, but rereading it today its not difficult to see similarities with life in the UK right now. BYMTs young performers are passionate about telling epic stories through musical theatre and will be coming to the Hippodrome to stand up to the proposition that All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
