Brought down to earth by a solid farmyard grounding of reality and humour, Grunt promises to entertain and inspire. Grunt is music-packed; the musical score is a fusion of semi-operatic and rock styles that will thrill your audiences, and challenge your gifted vocalists and musicians.
With hints of Les Miserables mixed with Tommy, the songs and musical arrangements utilize the rich timbres of vibrant vocal soloists, gutsy choruses, and deliciously evil singing ‘nasties’. What a great opportunity for your orchestra to perform ‘outside the norm’, and close the gap between your classical and contemporary musicians with a truly inspirational collaboration. The music travels through a number of challenging keys and time signatures, but will showcase both your strong vocal and instrumental programs, and extend your students at the same time – not to mention ‘wow’ing every audience member with your students’ talent! This faithful, emotive adaptation promises to be as popular and enduring a classic as the original novel itself which, after fifty years, is still recommended reading in high schools. No basic set change required.

Grunt! A Pig of a Musical
$30.00 – $1,030.00 ex GST
Maverick has waited a long time for this one! The characters from Orwell’s classic satire are given melodic voice in this innovative new work which begs to be lifted off the pages and given life on a stage. They are all here – the ambitious pigs, the trusty horses, the gentle cows, the silly sheep and the loyal unquestioning dogs. And just when you think you know all the characters, along comes the irrepressible Billy Bonesy from Billy Bonesy’s Knacker’s Yard. No, he was not in the original story, but he should have been! As the animals move through the exhilaration of anticipation, the joy of victory and later the realisation of dashed dreams, this musical will touch hearts and minds.ADD FREE SAMPLE TITLE TO CART
