Hallelujah! After five hilarious years and over 2000 performances Off-Broadway, ALTAR BOYZ will make its UK Premiere in a strictly limited run of 14 performances at Greenwich Theatre from Friday 3rd October 2014.
With their heavenly harmonies, divine dance moves, and faith that’s stronger than their hair gel, the ALTAR BOYZ are ready to spread the good news through the glory of sweet pop music…
Get set for a foot-stomping, rafter-raising musical comedy about a fictitious boy-band on the last night of their Raise the Praise tour. The Boyz are five all-singing, all-dancing heartthrobs – Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham – trying to save the world one screaming fan at a time. Their pious pop act – including lyrics like Girl You Make Me Wanna Wait and Jesus Called Me On My Cell Phone – worked wonders on the bingo hall circuit, but when fate brings them to New York, will the boyz take a bite out of the forbidden apple?
Full of sharp parody, sinfully spectacular dancing and irreverent humour, ALTAR BOYZ has been adored by audiences all over the world. With an extraordinary mix of side-splitting songs, uncontrollable laughs and light-hearted fun, this award-winning and totally original musical is 90 minutes of heavenly delight that is destined to rock the masses of all denominations!
ALTAR BOYZ will be directed by Steven Dexter, whose credits include Loserville in the West End and the World Premiere of Stiles and Drewe’s Honk! at the Watermill Theatre.
Casting is to be announced.
ALTAR BOYZ is presented by Paul Taylor-Mills Ltd who recently produced the critically acclaimed production of In The Heights at Southwark Playhouse. Paul Taylor-Mills said today: “After the overwhelming success of In The Heights, Bare: the rock musical and our BroadwayWorld award-winning production of Rent, we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to present yet another premiere of an American import. I have been trying to secure a life for ALTAR BOYZ for several years and am thrilled to be presenting it with one of the UK’s most accomplished directors of new musicals, Steven Dexter. He is so wonderfully imaginative and I’m thrilled with the cast he has assembled, to be announced soon”.
ALTAR BOYZ has Book by Kevin Del Aguila, and Music and Lyrics by Gary Adler and Michael Patrick Walker. It is conceived by Marc Kessler & Ken Davenport, and is presented by arrangement with R&H Theatricals Europe.
