Our 100th large-scale production: We’re Gonna Change the World


Our next show will be a special one. The 100th large-scale production.

The 12th at the Royal Albert Hall and one that we think is a humdinger of a show.

It’s called: We’re Gonna Change the World

Only Theatretrain would put Percy Faith’s Theme from a Summer Place next to David Guetta’s Titanium or Happy Together by the Turtles with Beautiful by Christina Aguliera.

We asked all our students, their parents and their teachers what they think is wrong with the world. We got back 50 pages of A4-  dense with ideas.

Out of that we built a show that looks at the problems of young people and the world but more importantly what young people can do to fix it.

This is Theatretrain so expect a huge crossover between all singing, all dancing and all acting. A large orchestra, a massive 500 strong choir and a powerful story told in the arena.

Theatretrain prides itself on being the only company who can put 100s of young people in a show, have them all on stage for 80% of the time and make them all as important as everyone else? How do they do that?

The answer is spending 30 years and 99 shows to find out how best to do it

So to quote Greta Thunberg:

“The world is waking up. And change is coming, whether you like it or not”

 If you care about young people and you want to see what their energy, enthusiasm and commitment can do then don’t be square, join us there!
