48 Hour Musical Documentary Teaser
The introductory footage from the upcoming documentary about the 48 Hour Musical based in Birmingham in June 2011.
The 48 Hour Musical concept to create a completely brand-spanking-new piece of musical theatre in two days. The process begins exactly 48 hours before the advertised performance, with a group of creatives (songwriters, orchestrators, scriptwriters, lyricists) coming together with the director to write the show. After the first 24 hours, the actors arrive and begin to learn and rehearse their parts for the subsequent 24 hours, and then immediately perform the unique piece of theatre that has been created.
Every 48 hour musical is different, and is performed only once.
