THE JULY PROJECT
THAT STRIKES A
The July Project
Te Auaha, Tapere Nui, 65 Dixon Street Wellington.
15 – 16 July, 2022
WITCH Music Theatre presents The July Project; a modern
song cycle performed by a vibrant company of actor-musicians, featuring a driving setlist of acoustic musical theatre masterpieces.
Running the gamut of contemporary conversions, The July Project draws you into the complicated minds of an ensemble of seemingly everyday folk, stuck at their own crossroads in life. Explored through a beautiful and often humorous series of musical vignettes, we unpack their collective desires for connection, clarity, and meaning in this touching song cycle filled with passionate and authentic storytelling.
Featuring songs written by acclaimed and award-winning composers such as Jason Robert Brown (Bridges of Madison County, Songs for a New World), Sara Bareilles (Waitress, Little Voice) and Tim Minchin (Matilda, Groundhog Day), The July Project takes audiences on a sincere and amusing journey through some of life’s modern foibles and idiosyncrasies.
