WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND

WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND

A HAOS & HATY Productions Musical

A fugitive is caught between the prejudice of adults and the innocence of the young.

Set in America's Deep South in the late fifties, this evocative new musical fuses epic storytelling with compelling characters to create an unforgettable theatrical experience.


The musical revolves around the time and place where the word teenager was invented. Swallow, struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother, discovers a mysterious stranger whom she believes is Jesus. In a town where a miracle is long overdue, the children fight to protect him from an adult world determined to find an escaped convict hiding in their midst.


As fantasy and reality collide, Swallow is torn between the two and begins to discover who she is and where she is going. Andrew Lloyd Webber's emotive score combines hauntingly beautiful love songs and explosive rock music with lyrics by acclaimed rock-n-roll songwriter Jim Steinman. The score contrasts the relentless influence of the modern world with the traditional values of the old days - something which the community at the heart of Whistle Down The Wind yearns to return to.
