The new musical will have its staged concert run from the 28th October until the 5th November.
Rehearsal images have been released ahead of new British musical Kin’s first staged concert performance run at Theatro Technis @ 26 Crowndale, London King’s Cross.
Due to popular demand, four additional performances have been added to the schedule (28th October at 7:30pm, 31st October at 7:30pm and 5th November at 12:30pm & 4:30pm) for the musical which has been written by Emil Dale & Stefan Kelk.
When a controversial cult leader buys an old ranch in a small town in southern America, tensions with the local townsfolk reach boiling point! As the conflict escalates, the shocking depths of their clash are exposed, with a startling revelation: Noah, the mayor’s son, has found himself entangled in the cult’s grip.
The musical is inspired by true events that took place in 1980s America and features an original 1980s pop-inspired score and will be performed in a staged concert form in the King’s Cross based converted church in London.
