Becoming Bill, a new musical by Bradley McCaw was first commissioned in 2010 by Joymas Creative and after extensive development (behind the scenes!) we are very excited to share this new incarnation of the work with audiences in Sydney and abroad.
New Musicals Australia has selected Ten works which will be asked to present 20 minutes of their musical for the Snapshot presentations at Hayes Theatre Co in August. Two works will be chosen from the read through to be workshopped. At the end of the workshop, each musical will then give a closed presentation to available members of the Advisory Panel. One of the two musicals will be chosen to present a full season at Hayes Theatre Co in late 2017.
To hear some of the music from 'Becoming Bill,' have a listen to the 'one and only' Kathryn McIntyre performing 'Let's Not Have This Fight' below.
