In the week of Jamaican Independence Day (6 August), rehearsals have begun for the brand new musical with new images and footage released today!
In this brand new musical spectacular, audiences will be taken on a journey to the hills of rural Jamaica where Bob Marley is determined to become world-renowned for his prophetic musical message – a gospel of love and unity.
Want to know more? With this super cool interactive map you can visit the places where his story is set and uncover the background to many of his songs of freedom.
And it doesn’t stop there as the production will be bringing a dynamic company of performers together who will fuse with the finest reggae musicians to bring this exhilarating story of struggle, freedom and transformation from Trenchtown to the West End. Crucial fellow soul rebels in the cast include the sensational Rita Marley played by Gabrielle Brooks and the I Three and his inspiring brothers in arms played by Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer and Lee ‘Scratch Perry’.
The musical is partnering with the Black Ticket Project where Arinze Kene is an official ambassador. Over the course 2021 1000 free tickets will be given to the project to distribute. Black Ticket Project is an award-winning bridge organisation founded by producer and writer Tobi Kyeremateng. They work with independent youth workers, youth organisations, school and charities, and cultural organisations to foster cultural experiences for Black young people. Further initiatives including participatory work between the organisation and the production are to be announced.
